Riding, and riding, we search across the land
The snow, and wind, has frozen the hearts of man
But we ride
We ride

Many days ago we left our home
With swords to ride into the night
Fighting side by side to destroy our foes
And leave them without life

We stop, consider the land that we travelled
Our map's at home, direction unravelled
But we ride
We ride

Many days ago we left our homes,
With swords to ride into the night
Fighting side by side to destroy our foes
And leave them without life

So much time has passed since we left our land
That we've become concerned
And we'll never find the battle
That we should have fought and won

But we won't stop searching

Lost but still we ride
Search until we die

We ride
We ride

Hungry and tired the frigid plain yeilds little
We trudge on further, eating pride and snow that's brittle

We ride
We ride

We come upon a witch who takes us in
To let us share her mighty fire
She asks of us our story and we lie and say
We ride around for hire
She asks us if we'd like to have her map
And points us in some direction
But we are far too proud and strong so we keep silent
And ignore her suggestion

Lost but still we ride
Search until we die
All the fault of pride
The gods weep in the night

Lost but still we ride
Search until we die
All the fault of pride
The gods weep in the night

We ride
We ride

    General CommentAwesome man.
    Only correction is, at the ??? I'm pretty sure the lyrics are
    "Who takes a sit
    to make a shell"
    Other than that, your good.

    General CommentSorry dude, but you have a load of mistakes. This is straight out of the lyrics booklet for the album:


    Riding, and riding, we search across the land
    The snow, and wind, has frozen the hearts of man
    But we ride
    We ride

    Many days ago we left our home
    With swords to ride into the night
    Fighting side by side to destroy our foes
    And leave them without life

    We stop, consider the land that we travelled
    Our map's at home, direction unravelled
    But we ride
    We ride

    Many days ago we left our homes,
    With swords to ride into the night
    Fighting side by side to destroy our foes
    And leave them without life

    So much time has passed since we left our land
    That we've become concerned
    And we'll never find the battle
    That we should have fought and won

    But we won't stop searching

    Lost but still we ride
    Search until we die

    We ride
    We ride

    Hungry and tired the frigid plain yeilds little
    We trudge on further, eating pride and snow that's brittle

    We ride
    We ride

    We come upon a witch who takes us in
    To let us share her mighty fire
    She asks of us our story and we lie and say
    We ride around for hire
    She asks us if we'd like to have her map
    And points us in some direction
    But we are far too proud and strong so we keep silent
    And ignore her suggestion

    Lost but still we ride
    Search until we die
    All the fault of pride
    The gods weep in the night

    Lost but still we ride
    Search until we die
    All the fault of pride
    The gods weep in the night

    We ride
    We ride

    General CommentACTUALLY, all the lyrics are correct that you put on here. Brandon Small has said in many interviews since the release that he PURPOSELY made the lyrics incorrect in the booklet so that people would figure it out for themselves. I've looked at about 10+ otehr sites and these lyrics are 100% PERFECT!! Good job.

    General CommentMy new favourite Dethklok song.

    I heard this on The Dethalbum, and couldn't stop listening to it.

    And yes, reminds me a ton of Amon Amarth. XD

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is that men should swallow their pride and ask for directions.
