Track Name: The Great Hall of the Sky
In the clouds above the rain
The breath of the dawn sky
Whispers my name
…it whispers my name

In a time – when the serpent god bled

We lived as heathen kind
Under the great hall of the sky
Under the great hall of the sky

Black frost forms on sails
Your kin fell as we followed your trail

Winter born - let our heathen blood deepen
We lived as heathen kind
Under the great hall of the sky

Winter meets the Sun
With withered heart un-beating

Winter born - let our heathen blood deepen

Wanderer of the dawn
Grasp the earth with Ravens claw

I am the leaf of the forest and the dirge of the night
And the frost of the river valleys
And the stench of the earth
As autumn fades into white

Take this soil as sacred oath
Unchained from the past, untamed
Wanderer of the wastelands
Walk amongst the storm winds
With hunters heart

And mighty hall
Where we live beneath the sky
The Great Hall of the Sky

Winters returning
And the wolves are feasting
And the winds are strong
Track Name: Dawn Calling of Thunor
When the dawn brings the winds and the veil of the morning stars fades
And the morning dews trace our steps through foreign lands

We gather at the hall and look towards the shining wheel
We light the beacons and the breath of the morning mists rise

Awaken, awaken to the call. Father of the skies, warrior of the shoreline

First breath of the morning skies, bring forth your will and let your darkest ravens fly
bring forth the endstorm!

As we watch from the headlands
And wait for the signs
Our blood will writhe and swell as the oceans rise

And our heathen calls will bring forth the wrath of the true father

Silence will fall across our lands
And the evensong of the field crows fill the air with naked cries

We shall raise the horn of our fathers to the winds
And summon as before the Lord of all Dwellings

As our heritage fades into time and no more of us will call
You will ride the night winds and rejoice in our memory
Our memory
And forever will your spirit ride the winds
And remember us and the Dawn Calling of Thunor
Track Name: Eithtelor
Mighty Eithtelor you surround me, you are the unrelenting storm
And the manifestation of the Sun.
Mighty Eithtelor you surround me, you are the unrelenting storm

Your shield is my shield and with your axe
You will crack the heavens asunder

born in the fires of the hunters heart
Naked before the pillars of emptiness
The moon is the light in your eye and forever more will you carry me before you
None have honored you before as I and never will
For you are the freezing breath of night

Eithtelor unleash the moonless dark
And tear the fabric of the breathless sky
Unknown to those my enemies
And never will your words strike their hearts with unending life

Your breath fills my lungs
And your fire gives me heart
Gives me strength

I walk alone but you are always with me
I feel your presence unheard, unseen

Your silence is a mountain
And your emptiness is my cloak

Eithtelor walk with me until the Sun warms a quite earth

And I am entombed in hatred
For the vile things that walk around me
So I will embrace the end as a new beginning

Eithtelor walk with me until the Sun warms a quite earth
There I will join you and be everywhere
And know that this is how it should be
Track Name: Heathen Lands
Ancient blood, sunless dawns
Freezing winds, autumn mourns
Here in heathen lands
Thoughts as thorns
Pierce flesh to bone

Ravens fly
through blackened skies

In my cold heart
Thou art mine enemy
I draw upon the last breath of morning
knowing that you will wither in the dust

I will mix my blood with our pagan soil
My cloak of mists will shroud me (in the vortex winds mists will shroud me)

Born from the union of
wolves and crows
Stone and clay, blood and soil

heathen kings
silent skies
Golden dawns
winters grey
Ravens fly

blood of the earth
Sunwheel burns
Death and rebirth

Offerings I made
Sprits of water
Spirits of air
In Heathen Land
Track Name: I Am the Winds of the Earth
I am tempest, the bringer of storms
On bitter winds of sunless dawns
Where summer lands are embers dying
Lord of the Suntower
Open wide the gate
And strengthen my will to resist the dread spirits

I draw upon the well spring
For I am the one unseen
We, below the clouds in times of war
Await your return

I am tempest, and the bringer of storms
I am ravens call!
I, the one who calls your name before the terminus

Breath your fire into our hearts and we will follow you towards the Suntowers gates
I am the breath of hollow spirit and the shame of the kinless

I am tempest, and the bringer of storms
I am ravens call!
I, the one who calls your name before the terminus

And the stars did shimmer fiery and heartless
Immediate and inglorious

The moon their mistress had expired
The winds were withered in the stagnant air,
And the clouds perished; Darkness had no heed
And I Am the Winds of the Earth
Track Name: A Mound to Lay my Bones Upon
Kinsmen carry my body
Raise me high on a bed of shields
Take me to where my fathers lay
…..where my fathers lay.

For this day will be my last
And this day will be my first

In Wodens land
In Wodens land
Where the honored walk the halls

Leave me here to die
Amongst the silent stars
There the Hunter will watch over me
And guard my weary bones

And the wheel of time
Will march over me
As I wait here with those
Those who came before me

All I ask of you my kin
Is to gather here in song
Every winter once again
To raise the horn and sound it long

Build a mound to lay may bones upon
And here I will sail beneath the endless skies

I will be as the winds of the Earth
My flesh as the soil
and glories will fade
men forget their oaths..in time
I will remain entombed, as bright as the North Star

Kinsmen carry my body
Raise me high on a bed of shields
Take me to where my fathers lay
For this day will be my last

Build me a mound to lay my bones upon
And here I will sail beneath the endless skies
Build me a mound to lay my bones upon
Track Name: Crows
Come on silent wings!
Watcher of the downfall of man
Ever watching and waiting
Stalker of the battlefields

Carrion kings
Guardians of the Sunwheel
Fly on black wings on black winds
Messenger of dead things



A thick stench of damp earth
Rises from woodlands and moorlands
Fly on black wings on black winds
Messenger of dead things

And where I dwell none shall know
For my kingdoms are many and scattered amongst the winds

A siren from the past
from the colds lands
from wastelands
As Pagan
And the crows come

My black bones burn
Flesh stained red with iron rust earth
Come on silent wings
Carrion kings
Fly on black wings on black winds
Messenger of dead things
A siren from the past
from the colds lands
from wastelands
As Pagan
And the crows come

Morning came and brought no light
And men forgot their lives
in the dread of this desolation
For those who lit the watch fires
Watched their cites be consumed
