Surtur Rising Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Tinfeer       Last modified by level Zyklus
1. War of the Gods (4:33)
War, the mirthless war of our world
when the treacherous wench is killed
three times burned, the three times born
by fear it claims was Gullveig torn

Death, Odin held his spear up with great force
deep into the great god of fear
battle horns gave off their sound
and Asgard was razed to the ground

The Vanir failed to see Hænir was a fool
without Mímir at his side Hænir could not rule

In a field of violent rage Mímir's blood was shed
and to Odin's court they sent Mímir's severed head

Truce, so a brittle and frail ease was forged
into a shattered piece to make
Njordr and Freyr to Asgard came
and Hænir and Mim to Vanaheim

Death, see the furious gods washed in blood
and Odin knew that the way to war
would not bring them any gain
just leave a black and bitter stain

Odin tog huvudet och smorde det med örter
som hindrar det från att ruttna
han kvad sina trollsånger över det
så att Mimer åter kunde tala till honom

The Vanir failed to see Hænir was a fool
without Mímir at his side Hænir could not rule

In a field of violent rage Mímir's blood was shed
and to Odin's court they sent Mímir's severed head

[English translation:]
Odin took the head, and anointed it with herbs
which prevents it from rotting
he sang his magic songs over it
so that Mimer be able to speak to him
2. Töck's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Part II (5:58)
You come to me,eyes full of grief
you ask of me to shed all my tears
to let him return from kingdom of fears
Why should I weep? or lose any sleep?
He never brought me pleasure or glee
so why would I help to set Balder free

You come to me,eyes full of grief
all of your tears mean nothing to me
so why will you not just leave me to be
am I to blame?Well,I'm not ashamed!
Oh how I smiled when I heard the tale
Of Loke the sly,so clever and brave

Höder the fool,Lopt's willing tool
he held the twig that cut Balder's skin
Lopt aimed the shot
that killed Höder's twin
leave me alone
don't come here and moan
I've never wished to see Balder's well
so let his soul remain down in hel

My name is Töck,and I won't cry
I won't let Balder return
Let hel keep her treasured prize
let his soul forever burn

You come to me and cannot believe
that this old crow now talking to you
is Loke not Töck you bloody dawn fools
you come to me and you do not see
all of your tears mean nothing to me
why will you not just leave me to be

solo: Mikkonen

My name is Töck,and I won't cry
I won't let Balder return
Let hel keep her treasured prize
let his soul forever burn
3. Destroyer of the Universe (3:41)
I rise up from Muspelheim
My fury is sublime
The sword I bring burns violently
With wild and lethal flames

I march against the asagods
To bring the end of time
I am pure and endless pain
And Surtur is my name

See me rise, the mighty Surt
Destroyer of the universe
Bringer of flames and endless hurt
Scorcher of men and earth

Swordless Frej with horn in hand
Rises to his final stand
He doesn't stand a single chance
I'll split his living corpse in half

And yet he stabbed me in the eye
He drove the horn in deep
The overwhelming, raging pain
Is driving me insane!

The waves of flames that
I've unleashed will eat us all alive
The rage that burns within my hearth
Is uncontrolled and wild
And now everything shall die!
Massive waves consume us all, the ocean is released
Our dying world quakes underneath
And sinks into the sea
And now nothing will survive!
Extinction waits for everyone
For gods and men alike
When all are gone of the old world
A new one will arise

See me rise, the mighty Surt
Destroyer of the universe
Bringer of flames and endless hurt
Scorcher of men and earth

See me die, the mighty Surt
Destroyer of the universe
Drowning in waves that floods the earth
The beginning of a new rebirth
4. Slaves of Fear (4:25)
They speak of love and tolerance
They thrive on people's ignorance
To make you all Slaves of fear

They feed on your anxiety
To build their dead society
They've kept you down for a thousand years

They nurture prejudice and hate
Condemn the wars that they create
In the name of whatever god

They gladly sacrifice your lives
Increasing power is their prize
Without regrets they'll spill your blood

They're feeding you lies
With calculating smiles
Enslavement of the human mind
As long as you kneel to their authority
Religion is what makes you blind

They're treating you as mindless fools
And use you as obedient tools
It's time to set your spirit free

This world we cannot tolerate
It's time to seal all preachers' fate
And let them swing from Oden's tree

They're feeding you lies
With calculating smiles
Enslavement of the human mind
As long as you kneel to their authority
Religion is what makes you blind

Your minds are restrained
Obedience is the chain
They've locked you up and thrown away the key
Your souls are for sale,
And you're the ones who pay
But still, you'll never be set free
5. Live Without Regrets (5:03)
From birth we're taught
How to survive
We're taught how war is waged
And there are no men now alive
Who stops our wild rampage

Light at heart we bide our bane
Whatever death await
Norsemen live without regrets
We accept our woven fate

So fearlessly we charge ahead
There is no time to hesitate

Don't despair, show no fear
Live you life without regrets
Don't despair and show no fear
In the face of a certain death!

A coward thinks he'll always live
If he keeps himself from strife;
Old age leaves no rest in peace
Though spears may spare his life

We don't mourn
A friend that fell
Or dread the day
We'll fall ourselves
Warriors don't go to hell
'Cause we know
Ygg will greet us well

So fearlessly we charge ahead
There is no time to hesitate

Don't despair, show no fear
Live you life without regrets
Don't despair and show no fear
In the face of a certain death!

So raise your horns
To those who died
Let's drink to
Fallen friends tonight
Let's celebrate their glory life
We'll meet again in Valhall...
...when we die!
6. The Last Stand of Frej (5:37)
See him rise
From land of flames
Destruction is at hand,
It is time to make a stand
Now I face, an awesome foe
I will always stand my ground
To this end my fate is bound

This fight is mine and mine alone
And there's no help from anyone

HIS WRATH BURNS!
With insane heat
All his fury is unleashed
THERE IS NO WAY TO DEFEAT!
The forces and the
Power that he wields

My hand holds the horn so firm
I am calm and ready to die
Everything around me burns
And I know that I will not survive

See him rise
From land of flames
Destruction is at hand,
It is time to make a stand
My death awaits, I have no fear
To this end my fate is bound
Though I'm doomed
I'll stand my ground

This fight is mine and mine alone
And there's no help from anyone

I go forth to meet my doom
But I will die in vain
Perdition waits for everyone
The world will die in flames

With all my strength
I run the horn
Deep into his eye
And as he swings
His burning sword
I die with a tired smile
7. For Victory or Death (4:30)
Time!
has come to wash our shame away
to erase the image of defeat
We!
have licked our wounds,restored our strength
and our vengeance will be oh so sweet

They thought they had us down
that we'd never rise again
they will learn that they were deadly wrong
what's owed will be repaid

Again we'll feed the wolves
and then vengeance will be ours
we'll split their skulls and spill their guts
upon the frozen ground
Yeah,we'll never kneel again
not to deity nor men
now they'll taste our bitter hate
what's owed will be repaid

So raise the flag once more
and the eagle will be fed
once again we march to war
for victory or death

They arrived with talk of hvitekrist
by force they wanted us to kneel
with their swords held to our throats they preached
but we will make them pay we'll take their lives away

solo: Mikkonen

So Raise!
raise the flag once more
in the east the eagle will be fed
March!
again we march to war
we will march for victory or death
Pain!
the pain and suffering
is but a bleak and distant fading dream
Shame!
our disgrace; a withering thought
finally our names will be redeemed
8. Wrath of the Norsemen (3:44)
My head hurts like hell
Can't open my eyes
My clothes are all wet
And I'm freezing right through
Don't know where I am
Or how to get home

My arms feel so numb
And it's hard to get up
My muscles they ache
With every move
I stand on my feet
But my knees fell so weak

SOMEBODY WAKE ME!
FROM THIS HORRIBLE DREAM!
SOMEBODY SAVE ME!
FROM THIS terror I FEEL!

I stumble around
On the soft muddy ground
I call out the name
Of the friends I can't find
But only the wind
And the ravens reply

With every gasp
With every breath
Smoke fills my lungs
And my intestines wrench
With every gasp
The sweet taste of death
The air is full of a thick
Pungent stench

So comes the rain
It's colder than ice
I wash off my face
And open my eyes
AND THEN I SEE
BUT WISH I WERE BLIND

They are all dead
There's blood everywhere
The norsemen they left
Only death and despair
A stench of flesh
That fills the autumn air

SOMEBODY WAKE ME!
FROM THIS HORRIBLE DREAM!
SOMEBODY SAVE ME!
FROM THIS terror I FEEL!

NO ONE CAN SAVE ME!
FROM THIS HORRIBLE DREAM!
NO ONE CAN HEAR ME!
OR MY HEARTRENDING
SCREAMS!
9. A Beast Am I (5:14)
Conceived was I
From chaos and hate
Of malice, deceit and blood
And how would they know
My fate is to rise
Against the asagods
My being is full, full of a rage
An evil that can't be tamed
It darkens my soul
And blackens the blood
A fire that fills my veins

So how
Did I ever end up here?
Humiliated, broken and weak
I've waited
For a thousand years
To break these chains apart and
To finally break myself free

I bit the hand, off the mighty Tyr
When I couldn't, tare my ties
Now banished I dwell
A sword in my jaw
Awaiting the end of time
In darkness I drown
Consumed by my hate
Longing for revenge
Allfather will pay
For his deceit
At the battle
Of Ragnarök

A beast am I
So vicious and grim
They fear my mean
Grinning teeth
I bide my time
My sweet revenge
Soon my ties will fall
And finally I will by free

So when you hear me howling
You'll know that I have come for you
When you hear me call your name
Your life will end in nameless pain

Conceived was I
From chaos and hate
Of malice, deceit and blood
And how would they know
My fate is to rise
Against the asagods
My being is full, full of a rage
An evil that can't be tamed
It darkens my soul
And blackens the blood
A fire that fills my veins

A beast am I
So vicious and grim
They fear my mean
Grinning teeth
I bide my time
My sweet revenge
Soon my ties will fall
And finally I will by
Finally break myself!
Finally I will be free!
10. Doom Over Dead Man (5:55)
The autumn clouds
Are caving in
And night comes
Crawling black as sin
Lightning strikes
And rain begins
A storm that tares my soul
I toss and twizzle in my bed
My thoughts are
Spinning in my head
Darkness nears
Soon I'll be dead
I'm losing all control

I spent my life
In foolish quest
For gold and riches
I'd contest
And now I'm left
With just regrets
Too late to change my ways
My life it seems
Has slipped away
I leave no legacy to praise
Nothing more for me to say
My life has been a waste

WHEN!
When time has come
For me to leave
WHEN!
When judgment's passed
Upon my life
WHEN!
A cold dark grave
Awaits for me
WILL!
Will my name
Live endlessly?

So I die but won't be mourned
Broken and alone
I wish that I were never born
So I die and won't be missed
No rune stone will be raised
As my body rots away

DIE!
All friends and
cattle pass away!
DIE!
And death will come
For every man!
DIE!
But I know
One thing never dies!
DOOM!
The sentence passed
Upon the dead!
NOW!
The time has come
For me to leave
NOW!
And judgment's passed
Upon my life
NOW!
Now I will rest in my dark grave
WILL!
They speak my name
With reverence?
