"Secret Of The Runes" as written by Christofer Jan Johnsson and Thomas Niklas Krister Karlsson....
Hangatyr, Your whisper told me the secret of the runes.
I follow you to be come immortal.
I take a ride on the worldtree, offer me to myself.
I hear the song

I carve the runes of the Irmin.
I pick the leaves of the worldtree, Yggdrasil my stallion
Eighteen I find (when I) sing the song of Odin.
I eat the fruits of the Futhark

Yggdrasil my stallion
I take a ride (and fly) with the wings of Odin
Seek it low you go to find them glow
By the well of Mimameid

Eighteen runes will come to you Take the hand of Hangatyr
You feel the serpent rise

    General CommentText from the booklet:

    "The runes are the secrets of the universe. Their inner meaning is hidden and concealed to the uninitiated. When you learn the secret of the runes your eyes shall open and you will become a god. By ancient techniques of ecstasy Odin entered into the dark spheres of runie wisdom. He sacrificed himself to himself in his search for knowledge. If you follow his example and enter the way of Odin you might be told the the true secret of the runes."
