He came from the mountains up north
And the memory remains like blood on my sleeve
That won't go away
A man from the mountains up north
He ripped off a smile from this little boys face

When you went away
A little spark grew and the art of hating you

Hold me, father
Embrace me with your ever smile
Sole survivor
And shine upon me like a star

Fear me, pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me, pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the color remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade

A feeling still fresh in my memory
When you closed his eyes
You took out my light as well
Turned heaven to hell
I swore on my family name
I swore I would find him and treat him the same

But I get no peace, my heart can not rest
Until my work here is done

So hear me, father
Once again I am talking to you
No need to bother
I must do what I'm destined to do

Fear me, pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me, pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the color remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade

I've killed you in so many ways
Since the day I saw you in the haze
I've been trying to sleep
But it's hard to do when the ravens are
In my head

Why, father?
Why didn't my pain go away?
I am back
And I'll sleep with my conscience tonight

I traveled far away from home
I traveled over waters
Just to send him right where he belong
The black ravens showed me the way

Fear me, pagan
As I am coming to end your life
The son of a murdered father lives inside of me
So bow for me, pagan
And in heaven I write your name
And may the color remind me of life once again
As it pours from the edge of my blade
