Atrocity At Godmundin Gaham Lyrics

3. Atrocity At Godmundin Gaham (5:27)
A frosty day though April
Through woods we paved our way
The crisp chill of the morning air
The sky and clouds were grey
When coming to the clearing
Was that smoke amongst the mist
A fiery glow in the distance
Assured us something was amiss

Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why?
Edwin, Edwin - Why?

I upped my pace I ran hard
More than ice did chill my veins
A mile before I reached the village
I could see the flames
And when I did arrive there
I could not believe my eyes
Around my lay the carnage
Of men’s hatred and despise

Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why? Why? Why?
Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why?

By the love of your new god did it have to be this way
This was our sacred temple to Woden we all prayed
If this was the price that you paid for your bride
You’re my sworn enemy till the day I die

We all had heard the rumours
Our king he was betrothed
To the christian princess of kent
And she so strongly opposed
The ways of our religion
What evidence was this
Beside the northumbrian flag
A banner of a fish

Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why? Why? Why?
Edwin - Why?
Edwin - Why?

Those that fled the slaughter
Returned slowly day by day
We burned our dead and prayed Woden
For those cut down by christian blades
And I swore an oath of vengeance
Against those christians so vile
With a heart so full of hatred
I did march for many miles


By the love of your new god did it have to be this way
This was our sacred temple to Woden we all prayed
If this was the price that you paid for your bride
You’re my sworn enemy till the day I die

My battle was a brief one
My sword blood was red
I fought though outnumbered
I left many christians dead
Oh I was stunned and captured
Now I’m bound in chains
Tomorrow I’ll meet the Gods of Old
By the axe or by the flames


By the love of your new god did it have to be this way
This was our sacred temple to Woden we all prayed
If this was the price that you paid for your bride
You’re my sworn enemy till the day I die

By the love of your new god did it have to be this way
This was our sacred temple to Woden we all prayed
If this was the price that you paid for your bride
You’re my sworn enemy till the day - till the I die
