Track Name: Where Winter Wails
The air has frozen, the sky white with snow,
it flies to and fro
Venom it calls, and ice falls like rain,
howling in pain
And those who withstand,
the damning wind gale,
the wintry pale,
shall be free of
darkness and wail,
the bitter of fail!

Hear the echo of winter's approach,
where sunlight can barely be seen...
Hidden under a mighty grey shield,
a weapon so vast only few can wield

The sky's wrath it falls, under white bray,
how the will frays
With vicious foray, it breaks and consumes,
and heralds your doom
Yet never we break,
we stand and we take,
damn ye who doubts!
And finally he,
who claims to be free,
shall hail to thee!

Forces asunder they break in the breeze,
and withers the soul of many
Armies will fall and forests recede,
the mountains will shake and they'll freeze,
to winter you shall bend the knee!

Snowstorms will come and they'll go,
winter will flee in spring's glow
forever the north shall remain,
forever this realm shall prevail,
forever where winter shall wail!

Damnation be, the fated Duchy,
and the halls of old Eostria!
Where winter wails, the darkness unveils,
and honor is thicker than blood!
Track Name: The Rhinefold
We buried kings once under flower and trees
forever to sleep as the world's above freeze
in darkness and doubt, the false ones' devout,
never to know life within or without
'Till one day they came in iron suits clad,
Aernish delusion in glory they had and
cursed our kings to a timeless being
risen in anger, their empty seeing!

Hail to the olden grey majesty of
fallen Boyars' opalescent grief
Damnation calls, damnation decrees
ascension to guard these dark halls from thee
who enters this home
of great sanctity
Howls and moans shall haunt your sleep
never shall ye return to your keep
forever you'll join us in here
in the barrows under the Rhinefold...

It tears, it rips,
it breaks and yet it grows
until all I see is raw,
Blood and death!
Tempting, and lost
yet here we stay
judged, and damned
rusted and mad
callous, black
life calls us back

Forever we'll stay till the mountains collapse
till the sky falls in darkness and the earth splits in two
Our bones may now rot, and our bodies decay
but never shall you rob us while we still remain!
Track Name: Abode of Mist
Track Name: A Horn Heralds the Day
Between worlds of Fire!
Wolves swallow the sun...

A thousand lives lost in vain
lain in blood and shallow graves!
Thar goes with us today,
thousands more will die!

-We will not fade away,
One last war we shall prevail!
As one we fight again
and to you it's war we take!-

The Sun spreads across the world,
the roaring seas begin to swell
This day we've waited for,
has finally come, and gone!

-You who dies will rise again,
the gods will help this final stand
Aernland shan't hold on it's own-
Our lives proven, our deaths command!


The gods have called on thunder and flame
and countless souls lie dead
the cancer of fear has fled
and none who are brave are left

-hope, a new born dream
hidden amidst the trees
a pair remain, spared by fate
a new age, starts today....-
