Deira dagar har mørkna
Moder jord meld sitt fraafall
Men sverdet har gaat vidare
Til ein ny bærar

Me er einsomme menn
Me bær fenresulvens muspell
Skoll skal sluka sola

Me er djerve menn

Sola svartner
Der fjellvegg ramlar
Naa gjestar sorgen
Paa livets tre (Yggdrasil)

For byleits bror farar
Kva er det ikkje Kampfar klarar?

    TranslationRED AND BLACK

    Their days have darkened
    Mother earth states her absence
    But the sword has been passed on
    To a new bearer

    We are lonely men
    We carry the Fenres Wolf's Muspellheim*
    Skoll shall darken the sun**

    We are brave men

    he sun darkens
    Where the mountain wall tumbles
    Now sorrow visits
    On the tree of life (Yggdrasil)

    Because Byleit's brother travels
    What doesn't Kampfar manage?


    summary:
    This poem refers to figures from Norse mythology,
    and to Ragnarok which is the great battle at the
    end of the world. After which there will be a new
    dawn.

    *The word "Muspellsheim" has its origin from the
    creation of the world through norse mythology. On
    one side it was the cold and misty Niflheim,
    Muspellsheim raging in flames on the other. In
    between laid Ginngungagap, the endless abyss.

    **Skoll skal slukke solen (that's the Danish spelling)
    would directly be translated into "Skoll will put out
    the sun" i.e. referring to the great wolf that devours
    the entire star.
