    He hung on the windswept world tree
    Whose roots no one knows
    For nine whole days he hung there pierced
    By Gugnir, his spear

    Swimming in pain he peered into the depths
    And cried out in agony
    Reaching out he grasped the runes
    Before falling back from the abyss

    He gave himself unto himself
    In a world of sheering pain
    Go that we all may live our lives
    By the wisdom that he gained

    You doubted him, and spread their lies
    Across the world, with sword in hand
    You raped our souls, and stole our right
    All for the words of mild-mannered man

    You listened to mild-mannered god
    And put your faith in deceitful words
    Your powertrip was paid by blood
    In kidness' name you spilled our blood

    I refuse to submit
    To the god you say is kind
    I know what's right, and it is time
    It's time to fight, and free our minds

    Let me die without fear!
    As I have lived without it
    So shut your mouth and spare my ears
    I'm fed up with all your bullshit

    After a thousand years of opression
    Let the berserks rise again
    Let the world hear these words once more:
    "Save us, oh lord, from the wrath of the Norseman"

    Our spritis were forged in snow and ice
    To bend like steel forged over fire
    We were not made to bend like reed
    Or turn the other cheek

    He grasped the runes, they're ours to use
