One Thousand Burning Arrows

They bring him to the shore

his shop is ready made

He will not see them anymore

Here he cannot stay

The brotherhood is gathered

Their faces hard as stone

They have come to take farawell

In silence they mourn

Our kind has left our ranks

A wise and noble man

We own him loyalty and thanks

He ruled with a steady hand

He will be missed by all

His heart has now been stilled

Tonight he'll dine in Odin's hall

There he'll drink his fill

The ship glides gently on the waves

As day turns into night

One thousand burning arrows

Fill the starlit sky

Two ravens on the longship

They spread their pitch-black wings

And lift up to the burning sky

A send-off for a king

Into flames the longship burst into flames!

Black smoke is rising high

To the eternal night

Into flames the whole world burst into flames

Nothing will be the same

Things will forever change

The flames are raging higher

They gnaw at wood and flesh

Soon the ship will break apart

And sink into the depth

This night we wait in silence

And when the morning breaks

Our king has left this world to walk

Through Valhalla's gates
