The last head falls to the ground
No one is left alive
They thought that they could take me down
But it's not my time to die

I wipe the blood from my sword
And slide it in my belt
This is the sweetest of rewards
The best rush I have felt

Ten men are dead by my feet
I smell their steaming blood
And I smile, cause it makes me
Makes me feel so good

They were crawling on their knees
Begging for their pathetic lives
Now their souls belong to me
As well as their eyes

Each man has something that I crave
I ate their steaming eyes
And drink their blood to make them my slaves
At Odin's feet in afterlife

I bring the skulls to my shrine
Where silent gods stand guard
Soak them in blood and in wine
A sacrificial ritual

One thousand heads are on display
Collected through years of thirst
Macabre trophies from my prey
Picked clean of flesh by Odin's birds

I am a wolf in human shape
I am a predator with flaming rage

I'm a wolf in human shape
Every man is prey
A predator with flaming rage
Blood is in my trace

I will die with sword in hand
And then my seat's secured
When Odin calls from golden hall
He will greet me at the door

    General CommentHey look everyone! A guy with a screen name "octobersnackbar" was calling others nerds. The same person who has spammed the same comment over and over and over again in the comments sections of various metal songs had the audacity to pigeonhole fans of a certain style of music and refer to them as socially maladjusted nerds with no life. I know what that is called folks. It's called the pot calling the kettle black. I started becoming somewhat interested in this octersnackbar fellow, so I decided to do some research about him. You see, octobersnackbar posted those comments at a time when he was facing quite a dilemma. His doctors informed his mom via phone about that giant cyst growing from the side of his neck. They told her that it was in fact malignant. Certain that he was going to die without ever achieving anything in his life, he felt the need to make himself feel better about himself. The only way he could do this was to judge others on the internet. By the time he made those comments, the cancer had already spread to his brain, unfortunately. Don't worry though, octobersnackbar is doing fine today. He is wheelchair-bound, living with his his mum and has a dog named UHHHH.

    General CommentOctober, you come on songmeanings site to comment on a lyrics page of a metal band to tell us that, because of the music we listen to we are anti-social, and stoners.... and that we should get a life.

    You should practice what you preach, get out more, and find something better to do then come on an internet web page to bash others you dont agree with.

    You october are the sole purpose why i support abortion, and the reason why it should be commonplace among the world.

    Now please, go punch your mother for plaguing this world of your needless existence.

    General CommentAmon Amarth's lyrics dont really need explaining...they are like Cannibal Corpse in a way; their lyrics describe events and essentially tell a story, rather than focusing on a general concept and making lyrics about it.

    General CommentI believe the line "I'm a wolf in human shape" is supposed to explain it all. He is human, but has animal instincts which drive him to commit mass murder and collect his victims' eyes and skulls as trophies. Cool song, nice and melodic yet remaining heavy and thrashy at the same time.

    General CommentDressed2Depress you are a fool. "I'm a wolf in human shape" is an aplogoy to the "berserkergang", the furor of Öd. And he making sacrifices for Wotan!
