Mother north - how can they sleep while their beds are burning ?
Mother north - your fields are bleeding

Memories...The invisible wounds
pictures that enshrine your throne (gone?)

A Future benighted still they are blind
Pigeonhearted beings of flesh and blood
keeps closing their eyes for the dangers that threat...ourselves and our nature
And that is why
they all enrage me

Sometimes in the dead of the night i mesmerize my soul
Sights and visions prophecies and horror
they all come in one

Mother north - united we stand (together we walk)
Phantom north - I'll be there when you hunt them down

    General CommentTo me, this song serves as somewhat of a national anthem for Satyricon's home country, Norway. The reason why I say this is becacuse the lyrics reveal a distinctively nationalist feeling.

    General CommentMisinformed person who doesn't know much about black metal origins can easily misunderstand this song but its actually very anti-christian. it is about hov christianity ruined their old paganistic belifes, the glory of norway and their gods are now all gone and people just don't seem to see it that's why satyr calls them blind, yes just like Pyrrhon said it's very nacionalistic song, awsome one btw

    General CommentSince.. basically the beginning of black metal? That's a rather uninformed question, I must say. Burzum, Immortal, Satyricon, TONS of black metal bands have nature & climate involved in their lyrics.

    Speaking of nature & climate, listen to this song on a snowy night in the middle of a remote forest, and just TRY not to reach some sort of enlightenment.

    General Commenta lot of black metal bands songs are basically about northern europe tribes bakc in the day. and most of those tribes were pagan. and the worshiped and lived with nature. so yeah nature and climate are biggie topics. that and anti-christianity, but not always satanism. satanism is used to piss the christians off not that they technically believe in satan. satan is in christian belief, so why would they?
