When I'm gone and my time had come to shut these eyes of mine
No stones must be erected I will leave but ash behind
Tell no tales about me when you gather around your fire
I'll be one with mother earth not dining in no hall up high

I have no master I swear no oath
The gods may pass me by
I steer the horse I choose to mount
When the storm draws near and the blood rain from the sky

One life hardly a notch made in the bark of tree of time
One death hardly a drop of blood on the reapers shiny scythe
I take not a thing with me where I will go on the day I die
When my star has ceased to shine, but in a shallow hole I'll lie I'll lie

Nobody died for my sins
No faith tied to my name
The path I choose to walk is mine
When the clouds turn red and the horizon as in flames

My blood my heart my soul my hands my feet
My hair and eyes my head my lips and teeth
My arms my legs my cock my choice and life
My loungs my mind till the day I die

    Song MeaningI really enjoy listening to this song not only from the instrumental point of view, but also from the lyrical one. This song is telling so many things about the author.

    "When I´m gone and my time had come to shut these eyes of mine" - he is obviously referring about the time he dies.
    "No stones must be erected I will leave but ash behind" - not sure about this one but i think he meant that he would like to be cremated.
    "Tell no tales about me when you gather around your fire" - he doesn't want to be glorified for what he is doing.
    "I´ll be one with mother earth not dining in no hall up high" - he expresses his connection with the nature, not a so called god.

    "I have no master I swear no oath
    The gods may pass me by
    I steer the horse I choose to mount
    When the storm draws near and the blood rain from the sky" - here he tells us that he has no beliefs and that he is free from any bindings that religious people have.

    "One life hardly a notch made in the bark of tree of time
    One death hardly a drop of blood on the reapers shiny scythe
    I take not a thing with me where I will go on the day I die
    When my star has ceased to shine, but in a shallow hole I´ll lie I´ll lie" - here he shows his doubts about the afterlife.

    "Nobody died for my sins
    No faith tied to my name
    The path I choose to walk is mine
    When the clouds turn red and the horizon as in flames

    My blood my heart my soul my hands my feet
    My hair and eyes my head my lips and teeth
    My arms my legs my cock my choice and life
    My lungs my mind 'til the day I die" - again, expressing his non believing and freedom.
