A sword of fire and an axe of cold
Vision of the Sibyl has foretold
Armies gather on the battle-plain
All will fall and earth will die in flame

Here on the battle-plain
We will die in flame

In falcon's feathers soaring overhead
Choosing warriors among the dead
Twilight written in the runes of crones
Freya weeps upon her golden throne

Upon her golden throne
We wait for her alone
Call us unto you hall
Take us into your thrall

The battle rages, but they fight in vain
When all is done it must begin again

    Freya is a norse goddess... The song speaks about the valkyries gathering dead warriars for the eternal battle in valhalla. The soldiers are split up and battle each other... Then return to the great hall and feast. They then go out and do it again the next day. Freya leads one of those armies.
