Sworn to the Elders Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Gates to a Distant Path (2:08)
2. Son of Fire (5:52)
Flames of power burn in my eyes
Pagan fires inflame my valiant soul
Fever of conquest will guide my blade
For destruction in a blast of fury

Deep in my heart pounds the will for victory

Under black skies, in fields of blood
Reign the fires of revenge and rage
Anger is my bride in this warfare
No prisoners but a smell of dying

Deep in my heart pounds the will for victory

Wrecking, raging fights
Slaying and raping in rapture
Power striking down in a thrashing might

Flames of power burn in my eyes
Pagan fires inflame my valiant soul
Fever of conquest will guide my blade
For destruction in a blast of fury

Deep in my heart pounds the will for victory
And in battle, son of fire shall prevail
3. To Enter the Realm of the Ravenlord (4:48)
They are coming with the grey fog
When darkness falls all over the land
They are appearing from nowhere
When night shadows begin to spread out

Crossing the gates of this dark place
Hearing their chants in the winter wind
Freezing calls deep into your heart
From this land there will be no escape

No longer man but animal
You feel your nature is transforming
As you enter a mysterious world
And slowly your heart is emptying

You are welcome in the court of the king
For as a raven you walk
Corvids fly all around in a turmoil
And you are part of the horde
You swear allegiance to a strange crow
Protect and serve him you must
An undefined and weird body with giant wings
The ravenlord

You dark guardian of my dismal realm
Your black mates you can trust
From human beings you have to keep it clean
No one must harm our den
Take their souls and bring them to me
They are a so vile folk
And I will send them where they deserve to be
In nothingness

One day we will expand our realm
Beyond the frontiers of these woods
Conquering the world is not a dream
And we will prevail for good
4. Sworn to the Elders (10:51)
As a leaf carried by the winds, in cold autumn dusk
As the oak broken by fury of the storm
My roots will remain on these lands, where I was born
And in death, these leaves will cover my grave

As a path blinding my sight of azure and snow
As a light guiding my way towards the stars

Stand on the shores in the heat of flames
To honour your brave and his memory
Swear to this man to cherish his land and his legacy
Sworn to the elders

As the breeze blowing my soul in icy kingdoms
As a crow diving into the underworld

Stand on the shores in the heat of flames
To honour your brave and his memory
Swear to this man to cherish his land and his legacy
Sworn to the elders

Sword on side, shield on chest, my soul will drift away
Above the frozen lake
Choirs resound from the shores, blessing my departure
Towards infinite pits

My body burns in fires, released in heathen rites
Onwards to the nine worlds in the glare of the pyre

Raise your spears to the sky in an iron arch
Honour your ancestors
Bards sing my glory in funeral chants
Forefather of the tribe

My body burns in fires, released in heathen rites
Onwards to the nine worlds in the glare of the pyre

Into these lands of sorrow where the claws of time freeze my soul
Gathered with ancients the spirit of our clan is to be preserved

I feel eternity creeping into my whole being disembodied
The fear of the unknown as I vanish into the fog

Blessed be the memory of those who were the fathers of our culture
These glorious ancestors will guide our march to celestial realms

Into these lands of sorrow where the claws of time freeze my soul
Despite the solitude and cold I feel the ardour of my sons

For my blood and memory in their veins will forever flow
And when the time will come for them I will be there to wait them all
5. Upon the Throne of North (6:48)
Through the frozen and misty woods
In this dark place where I was born
From eternal majestic forests
Upon the throne of our realm

Through the summits of our mountains
And the expanses of our plains
From the icy peaks of our crests
Upon the throne of our kingdom

By the splendour of North my brave soul is spellbound

Beyond the tops of the snow covered mountains are stars twinkling bright
As burning suns in the night they stare at the darkened earth
And for thousand years, nature prevailed in serenity, frost and storms
For the purest quintessence of heathen spirit dwells in these lands

Chanting these words to the glory of our world
To make one with the Earth until the end of times
6. Nordic Dawn (6:19)
Dawn, the sun will rise in silence
Pouring down its blazing light on the shades of the world

Now that I've walked in the cold through the misty forests
Frostbitten in my heart and my soul
Now that I've followed the wings of the Ravenlord all night long
Now that I've climbed to the highest mountains
At the gates of the passage leading to the clouds
I have arrived to the top of the world to be enraptured by the dawn

The frozen moors slumber in obscurity, awaiting the morning sun
Daylight in nordic and azure infinity, thou rise

Now that I've walked in the cold through the misty forests
Frostbitten in my heart and my soul
Now that I've followed the wings of the Ravenlord all night long
Now that I've climbed to the highest mountains
At the gates of the passage leading to the clouds
I have arrived to the top of the world to be enraptured by the dawn

The nordic dawn shines through the dormant woods
As the mist disappears
Daylight in nature and peaceful infinity, thou rise

Swamps are bathed in nordic rays
The dream of one brave man was to embrace this precious dawn, O'Mine
7. Icewinds Unleashed (4:03)
The age of ice falls upon the land
Icewinds unleashed whip forests in turmoil

Frost, as the skies suddenly turn to grey
Freezing climate prevails

Breath of power breaks in the plains
Rage and chaos over mountains

The age of shadows spreads over the land
Icewinds unleashed beat landscapes in the night

Frost, as the skies suddenly turn to black
Freezing darkness prevails

Breath of power breaks in the plains
Rage and chaos over mountains
8. The Godless (11:11)
When the shades of death glide over your hearts
And when believes become a force
You swear allegiance to idols

I am the godless, forsaken child from grace

Blinded by your cults and lost in your rites
You sink in a shadowed age
You are fools, perverted by your fears

Following the will of gods, you creep in lies and ignorance

When the gleam of dawn appears to my sight
And when landscapes invade my heart
I swear allegiance to nature
I am the godless, the son of Mother Earth

Banished from our lands, rejected by clans
Betrayed by my will of truth
I am the wise, disciple of knowledge

Wandering from plains to crests to learn the mysteries of our world

Sadness, lonesome, creeping as forlorn exile
Persecuted, martyr, I have to hide

In cold shades of my own terror
Dying in this rising solitude
Darkness is grabbing my soul
Crying in the lack of understanding
Madness!

Through these grim shadows, my soul revealed itself
In a world of faith, hatred will prevail

Through these grim shadows my soul has drown in pain
In the court of gods I will die in silence
