Born out of worlds of fire and ice
The nature spirits embrace our lives
From the underworld to above
We worship the fertile soil

Carved in the back
Blood strained wings are dressed
An image of grotesque
The blood eagle of human flesh

Rituals for the gods
We offer our respect
The blood symbols our strength
Our prey is yours to collect

Carved in the back
Blood strained wings are dressed
An image of grotesque
The blood eagle of human flesh

Bound over a stone
The sword penetrates the flesh
Ribs are cut by the spine
Lungs pulled out of the chest

As the eagle takes its shape
The human life expire
Salt sprinkled wounds
Flavours the blot
To the kings of ice and fire

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is obviously about the torture/execution method in which the ribs are cut open and broken open so they resemble blood stained wings. It is debated whether or not this torture method is fictional or true. Some believe it was true and was brought on by hatred of Christianity by Pagans and some believe they're tales heroism, poetry or misinterpretations of the accounts.
