01. I, The Jury

Damnation - their lies used to lead me away
Feeding my desperate heart - with merciless flames
I soon realized there's nothing to gain
And all the dreams that I had had got lost in my pain

I want to learn - I want to see
I'm gonna learn - gonna see - and I'm gonna turn

Because I'm the Law

Wisdom has sprung - and taken my heart
Nothing will stand in my way - I'll tear them apart
Revelation - no one can lead me astray
Follow my own burning path - away from all slaves

I want to learn - I want to see
I'm gonna learn - gonna see - and I'm gonna turn

Because I'm the Law

Riding the teeth of the wind - all barriers part

I want to learn - I want to see
I'm gonna learn - gonna see - and I'm gonna turn

Because I'm the Law


02. Hammer Of The North

Black fire
Burns in the twilight
The forest glows
Free heart
Passion and defiance
Pine and hooded crow
Spring eve
Glory of the raven
Melt the last of the snow
Gold sparks - set the night afire

It's my joy

Hammer of the North

It's late - silver stars shining - a toast to future goals
Black sky - everlasting beauty - brothers by my side
We smile - nature's celebration - we're fierce yet calm
Gold sparks - set the night afire

It's my joy

We'll learn every secret, we'll trample the cross
We'll curse at the giants, we'll laugh as we toss

Hammer of the North
We believe it's our legacy
Masters of our fate - their logic won't dictate

Their gods will fail - then we rise

Hammer of the North


03. Black Sails

Whipping in the wind
Rule with fear and dreams that tear the light
Sleepless empty nights

A shiver of desperation
Black sails rippling in the wind
Will the dream provide liberation?
Or pain in the end

Haunting dreams of red
Bringing doom - Bringing death
Black sails charge ahead
Rule with dread

Simple life seems hard
Looming shadows
They stalk

A shiver of desperation
Black sails rippling in the wind
Will the dream provide liberation?
Or pain in the end

Haunting dreams of red
Bringing doom - Bringing death
Black sails charge ahead
Rule with dread

The sea turns red
Bringing doom - Bringing death
Black sails charge ahead
Rule with dread


04. Mountains Be My Throne

I'm coming don to the meeting
There's trouble all around
A final push for the silence
The symbol has been shown

Now if I can't wield the power
I'll find another way
Without your guide, will you make it?
Just sheep that go astray

Rising
Watch me climbing
Far away - where nothing binds me
I'm done with all your fighting
Make it known - let mountains be my throne

Rising
Watch me climbing
Far away - where nothing binds me
I'm done with all your fighting
Make it known - let mountains be my throne

Rising
Watch me climbing
Soaring high, the sun won't bind me
I'm done with all your fighting
Make it known - let mountains be my throne


05. Northern Star

Living in denial and never seeing straight or clear
Deep down in your senses you feel that fear
Fear of true alliance, nothing worth the fight
No use standing up when wrong rule what's right

When they bring you despair
Don't resort to prayer

Time for fast decisions
Now it's live or die
Strength is summoned from within
Northern star

Banish the false religions
Learn to stand alone
Nothing up above and no one below
Fear of new beginnings
Like a demon in your soul
You must turn your ear to the beckoning call

When they bring you despair
Don't resort to prayer

Time for fast decisions
Now it's live or die
Weakness spreading like a plague
Will you make the change or stay the same and fail
Strength is summoned from within
Northern star


06. The Lord Of Lies

The lord of lies
He'll steal your life away
And grasp the victor's prize - He's born of fire
He'll claim your soul as pray
The trickster of all time
The lord of lies

Take a deep breath
Watch the forest pull him in
Preparations - Soon the trials will begin

A sacrifice - to make it work he must endure the pain
A conjuring - free the magic, fan the flames again

The lord of lies
He'll steal your life away
And grasp the victor's prize
He's born of fire
He'll claim your soul as pray
The trickster of all time
The lord of lies

Son of giants
Lust and hate is his disguise
Purifier - Naked he'll escape the fires

A sacrifice - to make it work he must endure the pain
A conjuring - free the magic, fan the flames again

The lord of lies
He'll steal your life away
And grasp the victor's prize - He's born of fire
He'll claim your soul as pray
The trickster of all time
The lord of lies


07. At Midnight They'll Get Wise

The barren land lies empty, no enemies in sight
Though no one ever told them, at midnight they'll get wise
As shadow falls upon them,
No one even dares to speak your name

They'll be given the lesson of their lives
Blood and death will follow

As they get wise
To the lies they believed to be real
And they will pay the price by facing the truth and its deal
When they die
At midnight they'll get wise

A shape of hidden power, a presence of true might
Trust in feral knowledge, their fires will die out
Servants to a coward, no one even dares to stand alone

Eyes roll back in terror - the panic starts to rise
Blood and death will follow

As they get wise
To the lies they believed to be real
And they will pay the price by facing the truth and its deal
When they die
At midnight they'll get wise

Watch the hunt-god rise


08. Bond Of Blood

A never ending tale
You lose but never fail
You're going to be the last to learn
To see what's right and wrong
You waited much too long
The truth is somewhere in between
But you've never seen

Now as I burn in fire
You will recall - you will remember my name
Smouldering sea, smoke rises
You'll see the truth
You will be taught by the flames

Bond of blood

Suppose you change your ways
A simple choice to make
You'll be rewarded by yourself
Possessing all that skill
To use at your own will
You better find another way
Or you'll go astray

Now as I burn in fire
You will recall - you will remember my name
Smouldering sea, smoke rises
You'll see the truth
You will be taught by the flames

Bond of blood


09. Savage Tales

See the savage son arrive
Striking terror on all sides
He's been waiting all this time
For his reign to come alive

Bite
He will do or die
Fight to hold on, aim for the throne
Bite
He will burn their pride
Rise northern child you've grown

See the iron sky descend
On a world that just pretends
It's a lonely path to walk
But an honor to defend

Those who walk against the wind
Will always walk alone


10. Ravens Guide Our Way

We ride endless blackened waves
To the land of our kin
Snow lords, kings of northern seas
Brought us home again
True hearts gathering up our will
Conquered what we chose
Black wings lead us to the fray
Gave us victory

Legions stood against us
They tried to make us pay
But never faltered or failed
We are cunning - Ravens guide our way

Crossfire lit the northern shore
Never stopped our return
Not force, driven by our fate
Gave us victory

Legions stood against us
They tried to make us pay
But never faltered or failed
We are cunning - Ravens guide our way

Black birds fly
Guide us home
Leave your throne
