Midwinter




Creatures of winter wander in the night
Their cold jaws of ice clinks bright
Echoes through the land of demons
Moving silhouettes of creeping legions

//
Yet the snow lies unswayed
pray for courage and sharpen the blade

Still the snow lies untouched and white
Glistening reflections of starlight

So forge the spears beneath the moon
Hasten, the crescent will turn soon
//

At dusk there will be tracks everywhere
Frozen memories of a mortal nightmare
Traces of blood and running paws
Strokes from skiis and sharp claws

//
Yet the snow lies unswayed
Pray for courage and sharpen the blade

Still the snow lies untouched and white
Glistening reflections of starlight

So forge the spears beneath the moon
Hasten, the crescent will turn soon
//

Hide our children, urge them to be silent
See, the reindeers are listening vigilant
Midwinter hungry beasts are near
The storm is coming so prepare your spear

//
Yet the snow lies unswayed
Pray for courage and sharpen the blade

Still the snow lies untouched and white
Glistening reflections of starlight

So forge the spears beneath the moon
Hasten, the crescent will turn soon
//
