"As the Last Light Drains" as written by Karl Richard Buechner, Erick A Edwards, Ian B Edwards, Corey Alexander Koniz and Darian James Lizotte....
The frozen ground beneath me
To mortal wounds I succumb
All of the pain is ending now
The fallen surround me
I'm lifeless in the scarlet snow
My place beyond is now assured
Send her down to me
Grant this final wish
May she claim me for her own
As the last light drains
Looks into my eyes to see
That the time here is over
Sees all my worth and draws me near
She whispers softly to me
The halls of what await you
Cross the bridge of light into eternity
Drink down the details
Hold them in my heart
Shapphire eyes
Flaxen braids
She is my salvation
As the last light drains

    General CommentThis song is about vikings, hence the subtitle "(Valkyrie)". Here's how things go down:

    - Viking dude is dying ("lifeless in the scarlet snow")
    - Since he died in battle, he is assured a place in Valhalla, the viking heaven ("my place beyond is now assured")
    - The chorus ("send her down to me, etc.") is about the valkyrie coming down to take the viking to Valhalla
    - "The halls of what await you", i.e. Valhalla, and to get there, one must cross the "bridge of light"
    - "Sapphire eyes, flaxen braids" = the valkyrie

    Interesting side-note/supporting evidence, "Freya" is a goddess in Norse mythology.
