Over the ground on the leaving land
We stand united on our way to forever
Under the mound time will take its toll
We fall divided and it seems that we never learn

Who is right
Who is wrong
See the light
Right is always there where we belong

We all died
When you fell
Far and wide
Waiting one to take the ride to Hel

Birds of a feather
What's holding us together
When ways lead north and nether
Through rain and heavy weather we ride

Though mothers cry
Even though fathers try
To raise the dead
The last word said
So we still learn
That there is no return
Back from Hel, back from Hel, from Hel

Try as you may, you can't make all mourn,
We're born alone and only death is our dowry
There he will stay, left to wonder why
We die alone into from where there is no return

Who has won
Who has lost
Boldest Son
Sent away and you will count the cost

We all died
When you fell
Far and wide
Waiting one to take the ride to hel

Betrayn, forsaken
With lies my life was taken
The woes of war awaken
Alone, betrayn, forsaken inside

    General CommentThis be about Hermods ride to Niflheim to retrive Baldr who had been killed by Loki's tricksy ways
    " With lies my life was taken"
    and the challenge laid down by Hel to prove that all weep for his death, only one did not (this could have been loki in a different guise).

    Some say that Odin knew when Baldr died it would have consequences at Ragnarök, so a few lines could be said to be in reference to this;
    "The woes of war awaken"
    "Sent away and you will count the cost"
