They came from so far away
( cellars of Norway )
where children play in viking bands.
( sun won't shine all day )

No one seemed to notice that they came that distance.
They just stood outside and smoked and talked their business

Play that song again and go to hell when you die.
Wave goodbye at you as you tune your guitars.

Play that song again and go to hell when you die. ( didn't we? )
Wave goodbye at you as you tune your guitars. ( wave goodbye...... )

And they played and you watched and you yelled at the drummer
as he poured on the flames and you passed out on key.

Play that song again and go to hell when you die. ( didn't we? )
Wave goodbye at you as you tune your guitars. ( wave goodbye...... )

Play that song again and go to hell when you die. ( didn't we? )
Wave goodbye at you as you tune your guitars. ( wave goodbye...... )

Gettin' that band outta my sight.
Gettin' that band outta my sight.

And they played and you watched till the end of the summer
When they boarded their planes and you walked out
Fell the floor
Soaked up and sweating
Fell the floor
And I'm forever empty.....

    General CommentIn concert Rob Crow said it was about when himself and their drummer went to see their favorite black metal band Mayhem and the song is about that evening
