Ein herleg dag då gubben vart vekke
Ein grueleg skapning han var
Hans kropp er no atter te jord
Men herjingane hans held fram med å gro

Minna vil bleikna mens uroa leikar
Og gir angsten evig liv
Minna vil bleikna mens angsten den leikar
Og gir sviket evig liv

Mang ei natt ho ha vakna av sine eigne skrik
Sinte og bitter på eit rotnande lik
Slik han hadde vanvara
Var det umogleg å forsvara
Den djupe respekten var no eit stingande svik

Ho sveitta og skjelve
Han er over alt
Frå morgon til kveld ei gnagande harme
Ho orka ikkje meir
Men kva kan ho gjera
Hans åtferd vil alltid gjera ho til offer for that

Atter ein dag på den gamle gard
Sola har vist seg
Det blir ein fine dag
Frå bjørki ein ser ein sveiande skugge
Der heng ho å dingla
Kva var det ho trudde

    General CommentEnglish translation: (thanks to Lateralus518 for finding this)

    A wonderful day when the old man was gone
    A gruesome creature he was
    His body is now ashes/dust again
    But his ravagings keep on growing

    Memories will wither while the restlessness plays
    And gives the agony eternal life
    Memories will wither while the agony plays
    And gives betrayal eternal life

    Many nights has she wakened by her own screams
    Angry and bitter towards a decaying corpse
    How he had dishonored
    It was impossible to defend
    The deep respect was now a stinging betrayal

    She sweat and shivered
    He was everywhere
    From morning til night a painful resentment
    She couldn't take no more
    But what could she do?
    His demeanor would always make her a victim of hate

    Another day at the old farm
    The sun has shown itself
    It will be a beautiful day
    From the birch you see a swaying shadow
    There she's hanging and swaying
    What did she think/believe
