Lyrics and cover designs: Hungered Wolves Are Coming

(Ivar the Boneless)

 

Hungered Wolves Are Coming

 

Grey legs swiftly running

Through the age-old trees

Hungered wolves are coming

A child's cry on the breeze

 

By father left, he is dying

A mother quickly wakes

Her son's fate defying

She from the forest takes

 

Crippled child to mother mild

Do not get in his way

Boneless legs, he will rise high

Blood brothers he will slay

 

If he can't be loved he will be feared

His darkness finds the cracks

His light he has away from steered

And anger is his axe

 

Sink down to your knees

See him stand as your king

Crawl down into the mud

Just like he did

Bow and admit defeat

Don't think that you can win

His rage is like a flood

No use hiding

 

All hail kin of Odin

But will all stay beneath

War looms, hear them drumming

Now his brothers bare their teeth

 

Grey legs swiftly running

Through the age-old trees

Hungered wolves are coming

A king's cry on the breeze
