"Dei for ifra nord
Mot ei anna tid
Bak låg brende ord
Framfor dei ei ny strid

Dei såg såg stormar i det fjerne
Men haldt fram og beint
Inn mot jordas kjerne
Frå tidleg mot seint"

I see a darkness overwhelming
I see that there is no light for me
I don't care if it leaves me blind
I don't care if I'm left behind

I see a white horse's head
I see it's dead stare fixed at me
I do not fear its eyes
Curse myself, return it twice

I see walls to high to climb
I see nothing on the other side
I should have roamed another space
I should have been another place

*"Dei daue gror opp av havet og ropar så sårt mot land.
Dei ropar bak alle skuter, som kavar seg tungt forbi"

I am among ghosts when I should rest
I cannot tell the worlds apart
I do not heed the words they say
There is no dream of another day

I hear a silence, deafening
Drowning the deserts, that is my destiny
I no longer wish to see
The threads they've spun for me.

"Dei for ifra nord
Mot ei anna tid
Bak låg brende ord
Framfor dei ei ny strid

Dei såg såg stormar i det fjerne
Men haldt fram og beint
Inn mot jordas kjerne
Frå tidleg mot seint"

    General CommentOviously this song covers norwegian mythical times. The age where the Norse Gods ruled. "Dei for ifra nord mot ei anna tid. Bak låg bende ord, framfor dei ei ny strid" - Probably, most likely the vikings are the ones that are being mentioned.

    That's my opinion.

    My InterpretationWhat I gathered from all the lyrics including the Norwegian translated into English...the song seems to be about Draugrs. Undead Viking warriors.
