To Hear the Trumpets Call

Dawn breaks high across these hills, there's a mist over the fields
I've waited for this day with blades at last to wield
I hear the trumpets sound, the hour has arrived
Laughing we charge the field as ravens fill the skies

And I have read the prophecies, I know what was foretold
And I've tread the road to Hel and in battle I am bold
And I will be there at the end to hear the trumpets call
And I will be there at the end to nail the bastard cur against the wall

There is no talk of strength of numbers, no one speaks of strategy
No talk of fear or weakness, only victory
We've seen our Father cast the spear and know what that will bring
Our enemies dead before us, while in Valhalla we sing!

And I have read the prophecies, I know what was foretold
And I've tread the road to Hel and in battle I am bold
And I will be there at the end to hear the trumpets call
And I will be there at the end to nail the bastard cur against the wall

The legends say you are a wolf, you're nothing but a mangy dog
Never fit to be a man, never fit to walk with Gods
And I will see you dead
You'll die by my hand
Left for dead, unsung, forsaken
Carrion for my fathers ravens

And I will be there at the end to watch you bastards burn
And I will be there at the end to see Baldur return
And I will be there at the end to hear my Father call
And I will be there at the end to nail your mangy hide against the wall

Love Song #4 (Burn Rome)

A wintry morn I stand before you
With my heart held out
A single promise I'll give to you
Let the whole world hear me shout

We'll load our ships at dawn
The North wind fills our sails
We'll cast the spear over Cordoba
Let the bastards wail!

We'll sail up the coast of Gaul
Watch it rise in flames
Heading ever eastward
Rome is in our range

So raise the Raven banner
Call my warriors home
For your name we'll sail
And we'll lay siege to Rome
We'll butcher our enemies
And bring all their gold home
Lay it at your feet my love
For you I would burn Rome

We'll sail up the Tiber River
Towards the Seven Hills
Seven pyres for your name
That my love be fulfilled

We'll stand outside the Roman Wall
Laugh when St Paul falls
Challenge their Emperor to fight
His blood will stain my blade tonight

So raise the Raven banner
Call my warriors home
For your name we'll sail
And we'll lay siege to Rome
We'll butcher our enemies
And bring all their gold home
Lay it at your feet my love
For you I would burn Rome

For your name I'll make this promise
Seal it with a heartfelt kiss
Name the price love, name the deed
My heart goes where ever you lead
A thousand men I'd disembowel
I'd run with the wolves and howl
To put a smile upon your face
I'd kill the entire human race

So raise the Raven banner
Call my warriors home
For your name we'll sail
And we'll lay siege to Rome
We'll butcher our enemies
And bring all their gold home
Lay it at your feet my love
For you I would burn Rome

Lamentation

Death awaits me every night
I ride in silence down the road
Hel's gate is just in sight
Let me lay down this heavy load

I know my days are numbered
Though long I've journeyed here
Never can I slumber
When I awaken every tear

And I would see the forest bathed in fire
I would see the oceans wash away
To plant the seeds of my desire
To see my son arise some day

Bring us to the promised time
Let mead flow in golden hue
Alliterate reason with rhyme
Let this world be born anew
Let the final war begin
And see what must come to pass
If this is what it takes, begin
And let us build a world to last

And I would see the forest bathed in fire
I would see the oceans wash away
To plant the seeds of my desire
To see my son arise some day

The poets remember the ages past
The seers have seen a future cast
In stone my heart has laid alone
Until the day my son comes home

And I would see the forest bathed in fire
I would see the oceans wash away
To plant the seeds of my desire
To see my son arise some day

Raven Wings (Thrashing Ravens Mix)

The City of Fallen Angels I call home
I feel it's rot deep inside my bones
Sooner or later you'll be dead
Scream the voices in my head
Remember the last words that she said

Suicide City and the dawn breaks in blood red
Another night where we didn't wake up dead
Too stubborn to die, so she said goodbye
I remember the look of hope in her eyes

She cried
Keep the Ravens on your right
Never let them out of sight
All these thoughts and memories
Lift you up on Raven wings

And so we'll ride across the plains
Seeking vengeance, seeking fame
Though it lead us to Hel's Gate
A man cannot run from his fate

She cried
Keep the Ravens on your right
Never let them out of sight
All these thoughts and memories
Lift us up on Raven wings
