Amon Amarth – Dawn Of Norsemen Lyrics

Dawn Of Norsemen Lyrics – Amon Amarth

We’ve heard rumors of land to the West
Beyond the oceans, where the sun sets
Sailing across the waves, we will fly
This voyage of discovery, no one has tried

Loading the ships our journey begins
Guided by stars, driven by wind
At the end of the quest there is treasure to seek
A land ripe for brave men to conquer and reap

Under the sky
We are the braves, ruling the waves
No one can sway, no one can break
Under the sky
There is no one, under the sun
Who can withstand our force

On the horizon new land appears
And we prepare for our imminent raid
Now that we’re near, we sense your fear
Ringing the bell, none will come to your aid

In God you trust, but you fear that he
Has forsaken your land, and taken his hand
From you and your kin in your dire need
There’s no defense, no fortresses manned

Here were dreadful warnings over Northumbria
Woefully terrified were the people
Amazing sheets of lightning and whirlwinds
Fiery dragons in the sky
A great famine soon followed these omens
Then came inroads of fearsome Heathen men
Destroying the church of God on Lindesfarne Island
By fierce plunder and atrocious slaughter

Under the sky
We are the braves, ruling the waves
No one can sway, no one can break
Under the sky
There is no one, under the sun
Who can withstand our force

Under the sky
We are the braves, we rule the waves
No one can sway, no one can break
Under the sky
There is no one, under the sun
Who can withstand our force
