about

Odin has ridden to Hel and awoken a dead seeress who tells him the fate of his son, Baldur.

lyrics

Odin's fairest son, Baldur the bright, has been troubled by dreams of death, among the gods

Dreams of a pyre, shields covered in gold
Gods mourn the fallen one, who lies unseen

The mead is brewed here for Baldur,
beloved of Odin's sons
He is brought low by his brother,
such are the fates of the Gods

Gods mourning Baldur, sorrow shaking the world
Foretelling of a future, a realm of gods undone

Hringhorni turned to a pyre,
his ship sails now into hell
Shed no more tears for young Baldur,
his fate must come to us all

Envious rage, Loki harbors
End of the gods, hate undying
Setting the stage, fates are woven
Death of a god, Loki's laughing
There is no joy here for Odin, foretold the death of his son
Return now god to Valhalla, seek of my words no more

Seeress of the underworld, summoned from your grave
Speak of my future, to earn your rest

Dreams of a god now lie broken, upon the most hallowed stone
Loki will begin his vengeance, a shaft for the blind god to throw

Fire take Loki, scoured from the earth,
Slayer of Baldur, father of the wolf

Envious rage, Loki harbors
End of the gods, hate undying
Setting the stage, fates are woven
Death of a god, Loki's laughing

By your command, I have spoken, By my will, I shall go
I will rest with the fallen, Counting the days of the world

Speak of the future, Witch brought from the earth,
Sleep once my task is fulfilled, seer of the fates

There is no joy here for Odin, foretold the death of his son
Return now god to Valhalla, Seek of my words no more

Fates are the weave of the word, bind even the gods
The call of the carrion bird, echoes in Valhall.
