Longboats have been sighted the evidence of war has begun
Many Nordic fighting men their swords and shields all gleam in the sun
Call to arms defend yourselves get ready to stand and fight for your lives
Judgment day has come around so be prepared don't run stand your ground

They're coming in from the sea
They've come the enemy
Beneath the blazing sun
The battle has to be won
Invaders, pillaging
Invaders, looting

Set ablaze the campfires alert the other men from inland
Warning must be given there's not enough men here for a stand
The Vikings are too many much too powerful to take on our own
We must have reinforcements we cannot fight this battle alone

They're coming over the hill
They've come to attack
They're coming in for the kill
There's no turning back

Axes grind and maces clash as wounded fighters fall to the ground
Severed limbs and fatal woundings bloody corpses lay all around
The smell of death and burning flesh the battle weary fight to the end
The Saxons have been overpowered victims of the mighty Norsemen

You'd better scatter and run
The battle's lost and not won
You'd better get away to fight another day

    The song is about the Norman conquest of England in 1066 (yes "Norman" is correct). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    I hate when people say this or gangland are the low point of NotB. They are both great songs!

    A good rock song. I like the lyrics more than the music actually, the lyrics are just cool. The chorus is pretty weird sounding but I like it. All in all not bad, but not a classic.
