"Valhalla" as written by and Heri Joensen....
Faiths and fools will pretend they have the answers to all
In awe they'll defend fictional visions of mist

I never believed in their stories
I never saw sense in their speech
All they ever taught me was hatred

Trough the ages your desolate pages we're forced to learn
Bitter days and your logical maze in return
Through the stages of conscience in cages we bleed and burn
Just take me to Valhalla

Truth and tears of the past haunting my mind as I lay
Alone have at last made up my mind what you are

No learning or logical method
No reason or rhyme in your word
I have learned that nothing is sacred

Take your time, in the end time takes us all we grow
Old and ail, don't pretend you have the answers to all

Don't trouble me with all your worries
Don't tell me were born into sin
Physically and mentally naked

Existential dictatorship when shall we see the days
Come around when you burn to the ground in a blaze
Stay this madness and keep all your sadness inside your maze
Just take me to Valhalla

    General CommentIn Norse myth valhalla is the great hall of Odin where warriors who die as heroes in battle dwell eternally so this song is about someone who wants to go to valhalla.

    General CommentThis is obviously an anti Christianity song. I think it's about a teenager or young adult shifting from Christianity to heathenry or pagan beliefs in general.

    "Faiths and fools will pretend they have the answers to all
    In awe they'll defend fictional visions of mist"

    Christians tend to ignore evidence that their beliefs are silly.


    "I never believed in their stories
    I never saw sense in their speech
    All they ever taught me was hatred"

    Christians claim their beliefs are about love, and to some extent they care for others, but their core is actually based on hatred and intolerance.

    "Trough the ages your desolate pages we're forced to learn"

    Brings to mind the image of a parent hitting his/her child with a bible when he refuses to read it.

    "Bitter days and your logical maze in return"

    In return for being forced to read the bible, you end up depressed by the fact that 90 percent of the planet is going to hell, that our creator thinks of us as unworthy scum that deserves to be tortured forever, and feels we only have rights because he feels like giving them to us. And by your teenage years you rationalize and ignore so many of the problems with this that your internal logic is like a huge maze.


    "Through the stages of conscience in cages we bleed and burn"

    Your sense of morality is stuck in the biblical code and unable to adapt to new situations.

    "Just take me to Valhalla"

    I'd rather be a pagan than a Christian.

    "Truth and tears of the past haunting my mind as I lay
    Alone"

    You remember your parents teachings of Christianity. You remember pain and heartache that you repressed in the past because it wasn't acceptable to your beliefs at the time. You remember things you once refused to accept though they were obviously true. (Evolution, etc.)


    "have at last made up my mind what you are"

    Not sure, since I haven't truly made up my mind what Christians are or what Christianity is.

    "No learning or logical method"

    Don't think, believe. Ignore all evidence of falsehood because I said so.

    "No reason or rhyme in your word"

    No sense at all. This one is pretty self explanatory.

    "I have learned that nothing is sacred"

    I'm not sure. it could be referencing the old meaning of sacred vs holy where sacred was something set apart and holy meant something that was pure and in harmony with the world. Whole. Holy.

    "Take your time, in the end time takes us all we grow
    Old and ail, don't pretend you have the answers to all"

    All life eventually dies, so will you, and you don't know what's waiting for certain so don't act like you do.

    "Don't trouble me with all your worries"

    I already know the Christian hell doctrine so quit telling me I'm going to burn in hell if I don't convert back.


    "Don't tell me were born into sin
    Physically and mentally naked"

    How can you say we're born evil when every baby is born with no knowledge or memory.

    "Existential dictatorship when shall we see the days
    Come around when you burn to the ground in a blaze"

    Not sure. Existential dictatorship probably refers to Christian refusal to accept they could possibly be wrong.


    "Stay this madness and keep all your sadness inside your maze"

    Stop proselytizing. Just keep your worries to yourself, inside the aforementioned logical maze.

    General CommentIt's just against religion in general I believe, even though " take me to Valhalla " suggests otherwise.
