Track Name: My Life For Yours
Tonight we settle scores.

From the first veil of snow to the last breath of winter, treading forth in the shivering wastes,
Will this long journey ever end?
Forty years wandering, cold, lost, and weary, with little strength to carry on,
Under the weight of this burden...
The crushing weight of all my years.

Chorus:

From the forests to the skies, across the ocean's dismal tide, through the boundless wake of frozen glacier's rage...
For the last time I will ride forth, and once more I shall abideth, to return a debt; my honor satisfied.

From the dawning of Spring to the twilight of Autumn, and all throughout the Summer's flame,
Restless and worn with season's change.
And I don't know how much longer I will go on,
Will I take this to my grave?
O, Gods, release me from my fate!
And yet I fear it's far too late...

Chorus

Bridge:

At last, I can breathe but for a day.
In dreams, forever night, when will I stay?

At last, I can breathe.
Track Name: A Common Son
Intro:

When you hear the calling of your clan and join with the spirit of the land
Embrace your Folk and celebrate and honor;
All of those who walked in years gone past and those with you who will stand fast
With the lives of our future sons and daughters

Verse:

A common son, united by the past
Product of our forefathers, our mothers, our kindred
Seen through their eyes,
The Folk Spirit carries on, enduring through our lives,
The essence of our ancestry survives

Chorus:

And we live on, through the ages evermore
A culture immortalized, carved into history
Our deeds will live forever
A common son, with roots ten thousand strong
Orlog materialized, cast into destiny
Go forth and bring glory

Repeat intro

We drink to you!

Verse 2:

We are reborn, from our ancestral line
Reincarnation draught from the well of time
Ever again, until the last light fades
Into eternity, returning to the forge from whence we came

Repeat Chorus

And make us proud (you'll make us proud)
This is our time, our place is now
Go with blessings
There is your future, live life with pride
Go with blessings
And make us proud
This is your time,
You'll make us proud.
Track Name: Heathen's Lament
And we march on through the frigid night,
In the shadow of our forefathers, we brave the Winter's might
Soldiering across this barren land to where we'll join our kin
And resist the invading warriors of Christendom who're threatening
To destroy our very way of life

Lay siege to the cross
Don't let them gain upon your ground
Fight to defend your clan
Cut every last one of them down

...before they kill us all
And put our women and children to their swords and burning stakes
And raze our temples and destroy our lore, our tales of old
Traditions handed down for eons, from the bards, we're told
We must not let this be our fate.
Track Name: Not While I Draw Breath
Verse

Will you stand with me? Fight and die if need be?
Hold against the hordes until the last man falls?
Will you sacrifice all you have gained in life?
Reject your comfort for a greater end?
Stand together, never waver
Brave in the face of overwhelming odds
For our future, and for freedom,
We unite in liberty, or death.

Chorus:

The evil stirs from its sleep, and no one will be safe from its reach
For we shall fight to be free, and never will we bend our knee

Verse:

Forever clawing, fight like a demon
Taking it to the very bitter end
Swords are drawing, battle lines forming
Storm clouds are churning, soon there will be war
The earth will be fed with blood,
And the skies will weep unto the dead
Never give up, never back down
We unite in liberty or death

Chorus:

Tonight, we lay down our lives in the path of those who would oppress
And enslave us to their god, and trod us under till we are no more.

Bridge:

Not while I draw breath, will I submit, will I accept.
Not while I draw breath, will I bow down, nor will I live with empty regret.

Now feel the sting of a thousand swords, vanquish the horde, drive them away
To the darkness from whence they came, obliterate, they are no more
Overwhelm them all take what is ours
Crush the wretched enemy
Bring victory to our hearth and home.
