1 Anger In this world, in this place I'm just a lonely stranger in these times, in these days my heart is filled with anger in this world, in this maze I loose myself in anger!
Drowning in the dark of my thoughts all the way down to the core there I fight a battle that I fought a hundred, a thousand times before
And in the end I loose again and in the end I loose again and in the end I loose again and in the end I loose myself in anger!
2 Desperation In a cold and moonless night we are lost without a light we are struggling against the resignation but in the end there's only desperation
In a world full of noise we are caught without a choice we are longing and yearning for salvation but in the end there's only desperation
All this ache, all this hate all this pain, all this shame all this woe and all this sadness
All these fears, all these tears all these sighs, all these cries all these lies and all this madness
We are twisting, we are turning we are yearning for salvation but in the end it's all desperation
3 The Dawn of the End Do you see the people all in fear? do you feel the shadows coming near? do you know it's all a hopeless fight? do you hear the rush of the coming tide?
And when it's time do you know where you can hide?
Do you see our world falls to decay? do you know we're going all astray? do you feel the heat of the burning land? do you see the chaos in which we'll end?
And when it's time are you still able to stand?
When all who you know have all gone and you alone must carry on when all that you have has no more worth what is your purpose here on earth?
And if these times of darkness will come if the moon eclipses the sun if a tide breaks into the land
4 Strength When I roam through the wide of the woods when I climb up the peak of a mountain when I hark to the voice of the wind when I yell in the freedom of wild land I feel strength!
When I walk in the rays of the sun when I stand in the glow of the moonlight when I grap in the soil of our earth when I hold all my life in my own hands I feel strength!
Wind and storm bolt and thunder rain and hail snow and ice exposed to the forces of nature I learn to part the truth from lies exposed to the forces of nature I yell in freedom my hailing cries: Hail!
Day and night black and white sun and moon heat and cold observing the rhythms of nature
5 Pagan Pride Here in the width of wild northern nature here in the calm of mystical silence here is the place where I belong
Here in the light of autumnal colours here in the cold of merciless winters here is the place I call my home
Then here in the north the gods placed a kin of men with light hair and shining skin and here in the north life formed this tribe to men of honour and pagan pride!
Here in the width of wild northern nature here in the land of fairies and giants here is the place where we belong
Here in the height of snow covered mountains here in the shades of mighty old forests here is the place we call our home
6 Wayfarer From south to north, from east to west I walk and walk but my soul can find no rest from day to night, from bright to black I march and march on this neverending track from birth to life, from life to death I carry on and on till I draw my final breath
From here to there, from there to here I walk and walk but there's still a pressing fear from near to far, from close to strange I roam and roam in this wide and boundless range from day to night, from bright to black I carry on and on and there's no more turning back
Through forests dark and old on long forgotten allies in nights of frost and cold through narrow, misty vallies
On mountains high and steep in wide and open spaces in waters dark and deep through all different kind of places
7 The Path into Revelation I am the sun the bringer of light I am the moon the guardian of night I am the sky where gods have their throne I am the sea the depths of unknown
I am the connection between the contrasts I am the emptiness where nothing can last
I am the earth the womb of the mother I am the wind the voice of the father I am the woods where no way is leading I am a glen where spirits are dreaming
I am the yearning striving for salvation I am the path that leads into revelation
