1. God from the Machine (1:40)
2. The Portal (2:19)
3. Heill Óðinn (3:11)
Heill Óðinn!
Sæll Óðinn!
4. The Lady in the Lake (4:39)
She came from the water.
Bold and beautiful.
Mighty sorceress from below.
5. The Coming of Ettins (4:36)
An icy rock came from the stars.
It melted on Earth,
dripping hearts of stone;
they grew into abominable horrors.

There was no end to it.
The ettins consumed the Earth
with dangerous sorcery
and neverending hunger.

Until they came,
the three gods:
WôdhanaR, ThunaR and FraujaR.
They cast the horror into the abyss.

But many ettins remain,
dead and cold but alive,
dreaming and waiting
in the deep and dark places of the Earth.
6. The Reckoning of Man (7:16)
I remember the shining sanguine Sun
the frozen forests and fallen leaves,
and the hollow hill under the sky.

I remember the complex cold caverns,
the long tranquil tunnels
and the large underground lakes.

I remember the dim depths of the Earth,
the lucid lady in the light
and her sacred stanza.

I remember the bright beast in her boat,
the tall troll telling her tales,
and the honey in the haunted hollow.

I remember the protected password,
the secret soothing symbol
and the old Oðal objects.

I remember the red runes on the rock,
the spell of seeing being sung,
and the bold opening up of the beautiful burrow.

I remember the coming of man reborn,
the birth of Baldur the bright,
the return of a world that was woefully lost.
7. Heil Freyja (1:56)
Heil Freyja!
Sæl Freyja!
8. The Ways of Yore (6:11)
Lights in the lake.
Flickering phantoms.
Dancers in the deep.
White wonderful world.



9. Ek fellr (I Am Falling) (2:54)
Ek fellr.
10. Hall of the Fallen (5:06)
Hung in the tree of life.
Wounded. Bleeding.
I fall from the hall of gods!

The bond has been cut.
I cannot stand, nor speak.
I cannot crawl, nor think clearly.
I start over again. And again. And again.

The bond has been cut.
The tree has fallen.
The life of a god,
returns. Again.

There is no death for the honourable.
There is no end for the honourable.

Only eternal rebirth.
11. Autumn Leaves (4:50)
12. Emptiness (13:13)
13. To Hel and Back Again (10:44)
