Deceiver of the Gods Lyrics

Submitted by level       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Deceiver of the Gods (4:19)
Since I born, they have kept me down
They have forced me to conform
I will tear down,
the holy crown in vengeful thunderstorm,
It fills me with despise,
Fueling flames of violent rage,
I will be their world's demise.

Asgard's always been my home
But I'm of different blood
I will overthrow their throne
Deceiver of the gods

All this rage, and all this hate,
it burns me deep inside,
And still it is, the only thing, keeping me alive.
Dark ambition within my heart and its aching to break free
The one true of my soul, the giant lives in me.

Kneel!
You all shall fall kneel to me!
Or death will set you free!
You all shall fall kneel to me!

Fall!
You all shall fall kneel to me!
Vengeance will be sweet!
You all shall fall to me!

Asgard's always been my home
But I'm of different blood
I will overthrow their throne
Deceiver of the gods

Asgard's always been my home
But I'm of different blood
I will overthrow their throne
Deceiver, deceiver of the gods
2. As Loke Falls (4:38)
Heimdall gazes east
A sail has caught his eye
He lifts his hand and sounds the horn
The undead army has arrived

Here comes Nagelfar
With Laufey’s son on board
He brings chaos, hate and wrath
He brings the war to end all wars

Heimdall knows his fate
The end of all nine worlds
It’s what the Vala has foreseen
He knows that everything shall burn

Facing Lopt’s deceit
Now they finally meet
The champion and his enemy
On Vigrid’s plains they’ll find defeat

Their swords meet in a mighty clash
War cries sound, horns they blast
Their eager weapons whip and thrash
This day when all shall end

The lords of war are equal strong
This battle frantic and forlorn
The blades sing a macabre song
This day when all shall end

Heimdall’s blade bites burning sharp
As it cuts through flesh and bone
Blood comes gushing from the wound
As Loke’s head falls tumbling
Rolling to the burning ground
3. Father of the Wolf (4:19)
So he found the heart in barren land
It was beating, still alive
He held it gently in his hand
And looked up to the sky

With evil thoughts of vicious kind
And sinister disdain
His thoughts of bringing back to life
The witch that died in flames

Serpent’s kin
Born of sin
Dark within
Father of the wolf!

He then devoured Gullveig’s heart
And she was born again
They brought to life an evil force
A beast that can’t be tamed

With dark deception in his soul
Betrayal of the gods
The bane of Oden now is born
Born of evil blood

Serpent’s kin
Born of sin
Dark within
Father of the wolf!

They brought to life a malicious force
A vile beast that cannot be tamed
Fimbultyr’s nemesis now is born
A vile beast that cannot be restrained

Dark!
Deception in his
Soul!
Betrayal of the
Gods!
Oden’s bane is
Born!
Born of evil blood!

Serpent’s kin
Born of sin
Dark within
Father of the wolf
4. Shape Shifter (4:02)
I was born of giant's blood
Raised in Asgård, the home of gods
I am the master of disguise
For this treat I've gained your prise

Fast in thought, quicker tongue
Brawl with me and you'll get stung
I am the master of deceit
My words bind or set you free

I am the walker on the wind
The shape shifter
Two-faced words
And a lying grin
The shape shifter

You call me evil; curse my name
But you only have yourselves to blame
Order needs it’s anarchy
Balance through calamity

We mixed our blood in olden days
Now I wander like a stray
We were brothers, now estranged
I will have my sweet revenge

My words are poison to your ears
I say the words you fear
Still you know it is the truth you hear
Ragnarök is drawing near

There you sit in Aegir’s hall
Waiting for the coming fall
Council of the condemned
Twilight of both gods and men

Face the facts; you're old and weak
Empty words are all you speak
Now escape, there's no return
The universe shall bleed and burn

I am the eagle in the sky
The shape shifter
Vicious wolf
Howling in the night
The shape shifter
I am the walker on the wind
The shape shifter
Two-faced words
And a lying grin
The shape shifter
I am the eagle in the sky
The vicious wolf
Howling in the night
I am the walker on the wind
Lying words,
With an honest grin
The shape shifter
5. Under Siege (6:17)
Outside these walls
An army awaits
But in these halls
We feel safe

Countless attacks
We have repelled
They won’t turn back
They cannot be quelled

Supplies are running low
Starvation now awaits
Reinforcements will not show
The day is much too late

Broken and weak
Never give in
Prospects are bleak
We can’t win

There is no hope
No time for lament
End of the rope
Our lives are spent

We have held out for months
Hoping for relief
Our fortress now our tomb
Ad salvation now our grief
We have held out for moths

Waiting for relief
Our fortunes now our own
This is destiny

Supplies are running low
Starvation now awaits
Reinforcement never showed
As the daylight starts to fade
There’s nothing left to lose
We have run out of time
There’s nothing left to chose
Expect how we shall die

Open the gates!
Now we attack!
Ride into fade!
6. Blood Eagle (3:15)
Look to my burning eyes
Plead for your worthless life
All remorse I had has died
And all I have is hate inside

You took my soul from me
You took my family
You killed them all ferociously
Now this is what I give to thee

Carved upon your naked back
Blood Eagle!
Skinned alive your ribs are cracked
Blood Eagle!
Still alive you gasp for air
As panic strikes your eyes they stare
Terror grips you dying heart
Blood Eagle!

Helpless on the ground
Hands and feet tightly bound
In my eyes no mercy found
My sharp knife starts to carve around

Penetrate your naked skin
Rip flesh and dig within
With a pleased and twisted grin
I spread your lungs like eagle’s wings

The burning grief is tormenting me
The hate I feel is destroying me
Only vengeance will give me peace
Only vengeance will set my spirit free

Carved upon your naked back
Blood Eagle!
Skinned alive your ribs will crack
Blood Eagle!
Still alive you gasp for air
As panic strikes your eyes they stare
Slow death grips your tortured heart
Blood Eagle!
7. We Shall Destroy (4:25)
Sword and spear
Wall of shields
Standing strong
On this their chosen battlefield

Form the lines
Shield by shield
Side by side
We’re marching into destiny

March as one, don’t look back
Oden’s sons: attack!

Unleash hell, do not repent
Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear
This is no place for fear

Hold the lines, move as one
In unity our victory’s won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Fear will not pierce our hearts, the searching arrows wound
Victory is our reward for all the blood we spilled
We didn’t come to waste our lives, like pawns in a savage game
Our spirits, shields and spears are linked in a much stronger chain

March as one, don’t look back
Oden’s sons: attack!

All are one and one is all
Side by side the battle calls
All are one and one is all
Shield by shield we’ll never fall

Unleash hell, do not repent
Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear
This is no place for fear

Charge with force, break their ranks
No remorse, crush their flags
Pulverise the human wall
We shall destroy!
8. Hel (4:09)
Welcome to my humble home
Your soul is mine to keep
There are no walls of rock and stone
Yet no one ever leaves

Those who die of age and plague
Are welcomed in my court
Murderers, miscreants
Will linger here and rot

Those who die inglorious
And those who die in shame
They are all sent to my dark halls
They all shall fear my name

[Chorus:]
Here hunger is your plate
Here famine is your knife
Here you will forever dwell
I welcome you to Hel

I welcome you to Hel

Now here you are in my cold realm
You are my honoured guest
At the banquette of the dead
Your soul will never rest

[Chorus:]
Here sickness is your bed
Here ruin is your fell
Here you will forever dwell
I welcome you to
Here hunger is your plate
Here famine is your knife
Here you will forever dwell
I welcome you to Hel
9. Coming of the Tide (4:16)
Racing ‘cross this artic lands
A mounted legion
Under my command
We’re brutal force
No men can withstand
Total havoc is at hand

See the black crows circle high
Waiting for brave men to die
They sense the coming of the tide
When opposition’s swept aside

The fateful message
Reached us months ago
That our home was under siege
And since that day
We’ve been heading north
Our kinsmen needed our relief

As we near our fortress walls
Black smoke is rising to the sky
Burnt black ruins
Of our father’s halls
And corpses greet our tired eyes

What madness led them to attack
Victory could not be won
They must’ve known
There was no turning back
And now they all are gone

No woman, child or man was spared
Their bodies lying where they fell
Suffering, anguish and despair
As they went through living hell

So now we’re on the ride again
And vengeance is
Our newfound path
We draw our strength
From grief and pain
These bastards shall know
Our endless wrath

See the black crows circle high
Waiting for brave men to die
This is the coming of the tide
When opposition’s swept aside
10. Warriors of the North (8:12)
We were the warriors of the north
Notorious and brave
We’d never lost a fight in war
We feared not the grave

The ruler of this northern court
My brother, lord, king
He always had our loyal swords
But we would feel his sting

The ageing king had no descendants
No heir to take this throne
If filled his soul with fear
Transcendent
That next in line was my first-born

The king’s heart grew
Full of dark deception
Full of foul conspiracy
This was when dark days
Had their inception
And we fell to his vile deceit

Robbed of arms, robbed of pride
But he spared our lives
The fear he had of Oden’s wrath
Held his vengeful knife

With hearts so cold we left our homes
Banished from our land
A life in shames, a life in grief
Until we rise again

Winters come, winters pass
Twenty wasted years
We’re ageing men, our youth is gone
We will shed no tears

Winters come and winters pass
Twenty years have gone
Like a dream we fade away
Into Oblivion

We are the warriors of the north
Notorious and brave
We’re old but strong as before
And we don’t fear the grave

Form the south an army rises
They ride under cross of gold
From the shades we’re called
In a time of crises
To defend the king now weak and old

As the flames of warfare rage higher
We feel your destiny’s embrace
We are ageing men of an old empire
Now we can see Valhalla’s gates

We!
March again
First in line
To reach Valhalla’s mighty gates

We!
March again
March to fight
To reach Valhalla’s mighty
We!
March again
Give our lives
To reach Valhalla’s
Mighty royal gates
