"Brother's Bane" as written by and Heri Joensen....
Honour your brother's name, unarmed of blind
Let me aid you in your aim, don't stay behind let's
Maim immortality and death to a deity

There's no reason to defend, nothing can harm him
Let's say it's just pretend, extend your arm and
Bend now this fatal bow and with this mistletoe

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain

Grieving, my teeth I grind, I see it now
You mischievous mastermind, for this I vow
You'll pay in a paragon of sorrow, you made my son

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain

Somehow, by good or ill,
Some have their will
And some care not if they kill,
Scorching their spirit
So tales are torn apart and cold
Conscience close their heart

Can't save them now
Just kneel and bow
Can't save them now
All die somehow

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain

Your brother's bane
My greed and gain
Your brother's bane
My greed and gain

    Song MeaningThis song is about the Death of Baldr, son of Odin. Baldr was invincible to anyone and everything except the plant mistletoe. The Norse gods used to practice their combat skills and aim on him since he couldent be hurt. One day Loki helped Baldr's blind brother, Hod, to aim his arrow at Baldr. However, Loki had found out the secret to Baldr's immortality and gave Hod an arrow of mistletoe, killing Baldr. Thats essentially the first verse.

    The second verse is just Odin being pissed at Loki.
