Nothing will grow here
Icy fields - blackened sorrow
Legacy of a lost mind
Feed my void
What you're waiting for

I'm too late
It is more than a game
The river reveals
Now I'm in between these lines
I cannot escape it seems
Sail on, my friend

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Walls they fall
When the march of the others begins

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Rise and fall
When the War of the Thrones shall begin

While I sit there in silence
Come and talk to me
I can't free my mind
It is all I'm begging for

While I sit there in silence

Will it ever end?
Will I find what I'm longing for?
Will I ever walk out of shadows so grey?
I'm condemned, I am hallowed
Icy fields they won't hurt anyone

Will you walk with me?
Any further
There at world's end
It's me
I sing

I cannot escape it seems
Sadly I sing

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Walls they fall
When the march of the others begins

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Rise and fall
When the War of the Thrones shall begin

Away
Watch the river it flows
Noe and ever
I cannot believe in more
And now my time will come
Carry on

Will I ever learn from the past?
Will I fade away?
Will I ever stay where the shadows will grow?
There is luck at the gallows
I will free my mind
Soon it will show

Let it rain
There'll be no spring
My dream is a mirror
It reveals a matter of lies

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Walls they fall
When the march of the others begins

All I ever feel is
All I ever see is
Rise and fall
When the War of the Thrones shall begin

Leave a fee for the tillerman
And the river behind

    My InterpretationI've seen the comments and all say its probably the night watch or Jon Snow, but there are things that don't add up.

    Actualy I belive this song is about Coldhands.

    I'm condemned, I am hallowed
    Icy fields they won't hurt anyone

    Since he's a wight he doesn't suffer the privations of winter. The talk of the "river" seems a metaphor for death and the "There is luck at the gallows" looks like he's wishing for a death that never came.

    General CommentIt's about George R. R. Martin's book series 'A Song of Fire and Ice'.

    The "Others" are the bad guys of the series, I believe, and the "walls" mentioned are just that, big walls, which seperate people from dark, evil-ridden areas of the world (perhaps where the Others normally dwell). I suppose it could have been metaphorical in the song, but yeah, these "Walls" are prominent in the story AFAIK.

    General CommentI am always amazed at how much passion Hansi can put in on lyrics that really aren't too serious, I mean this song is based off a fantasy book series, but the "Will you walk with me any further" is some of the most passionate singing I have ever heard!

    General Comment@ToSirius

    The "walls" are most likely referring to The Wall, which is the big ass wall at the top of Westeros. It's a giant was of ice and... other wall like stuff (I have no imagination, sue me), which shields the Seven Kingdoms from the wastelands of the north, where the Others reside.
