"For The Stabwounds In Our Backs" as written by and Johan Hegg Ted Lundstrom....
Silently we bide our time
Soon we'll pay you back
For all the wrongs you've done our kind
For the stabwounds in our backs

You think you're safe. Well, live your lie
There's no way you'll escape
The day that all things living die
The day we rise again

Then Fenris' father will summon us
And we will rise from the death
One million warriors with foaming mouths
To challenge life itself

A horrid ship of dead men's nails
Will bring our ranks ashore
The eastern wind will fill our sails
And your son will hold the oar

You think you're safe. Well, live your lie
There's no way you'll escape
The day that all things living die
The day we rise again

Our rusty swords will never rest
So send the best you've got
Into our grinning jaws of death
We'll make their suffering short

So sit there on your golden throne
Soon we will arise
Time for vengeance is coming soon
The time for all to die!

    General CommentAbout the warriors of Hel. All those who died "unhonorable". This included per se even those who died of old age or by murder.

    They'll rise on the day of Ragnarök to fight on the side of "evil" and, as stated here, to take vengeance on those who betrayed them.

    General CommentCool song. I believe that "A horrid ship of dead men's nails" is a reference to Naglfar, a ship made from the fingernails and toenails of the dead.

    Song Meaning"Then Fenris father will summon us" refers to Loke, who leads the legions of the dead at Ragnarök.

    As stated by videogamefreak above, Naglfar will come with the eastern wind carrying the dead. The last part, "so sit there on your golden throne" refers to the Aesir - those who will suffer the onslaught of the dead.
