In the hall of the slain
Valkyries and heroes attend me
Ravens and wolves at my side, forever
They did befriend me

I paid an eye for a drink of mead
And was given wisdom supreme
Granted to me, the secrets of magic
Of life and death

Speared, hung upside down
Nine days and nights
No food nor mead

The will to be a sacrifice
Of myself unto myself
Wisdom and rhyme
Sorcery, death, living inside me

Of life and death I am king
For both do I bring
By sword, and spear, and ring

Raise thy weapons on this day
Ye shall not die alone
Fight and die, let valkyries fly
For they shall take thee home

I promise thee that on this night
Ye shall be by my side
Asgard's halls await, with heroes
Brothers that have died

For thee we wait at Asgard's gates
Come join us by our side
Valhalla waits, so choose thy fate
For all of us must die
