Falkenbach – The Heathenish Foray lyrics

In... ancient times once rode across the land A
man unknown on a horse of untold grand Adorned,
his cape by thirty runes of gold Of
whom the tales since ages unknown told The...

... man arrived at the shore of sea And
gazed onto the nightly sky His,
ears could hear and his eyes could see Two
ravens dark as night passing by In...

... a distance far the thunder sounds And
lightnings reached the frozen grounds His,
breath ran fast his, heart pounded strong As
the day now came awaited, oh so long Tears...

... will fall and blood will soon be shed When
the dawn heralds the twilight of the day Then...
into battle they will ride with their swords in hand For
a heathenish foray Countless...

... miles he rode through ice and knee-deep snow Over
mountains 'till the landscape changed it's face So
he at last arrived where winds blew strong and chill Like
a welcome to all those who trod this place He...

... in cape was wrapped and, with his hammer 'round his neck He
forced his way though he didn't saw the path But,
he did not rest 'till, he had crossed this land of chill And
the storm had calmed when, he stood alone on hill His...

... eyes could see the forest shining bright And
it's trees reflected solens golden light The,
sound of horns then reached his ears To
welcome him and take away his fears From...

... all their lands the kings they, came With
their retinue of countless men And,
the maiden in full armour sat on their horses Winged,
until, the right began So...

he rested a while and recovered from his ride The,
horizon gleamed by the mighty northers light And,
the elder ones sang tales about the past Of,
their ancestors pride that, will forever last As...

... the darkness fell and gone was solens light The
silence ruled amongst the men of heathenpride Who,
now gathered in a mighty battle-line And
awaited their Gods to give the final sign
