leaving the world of mortals lyrics – barathrum

i lie awake on the battlefield
a fatal wound in my breast
i’m soon to be dead
yet still i am thinking…
a sail on the horizon
vanishing in the crimson dawn…
my comrades are gone…
victorious! – and silence descends…
suddenly i hear the hooves
not born from this earth
the valkyries come
they found me worthy
i’m drawn upon a horse’s back
shivering with fright and joy
i know i have died
to live forevermore
leaving the world of mortals
i already can see those gates
once arrived i will join the feast
where all my brave ancestors wait
welcomed by ravens
i’m shown the place i’ve earned
around the fire we sit and drink
until time ends…
