Lyrics- Before God

Posted by Label56 in Lyrics

Lyrics below are from the Before God cd- Under The Blood Banner.
The first is about the “walking dead” in society that will not awaken. I`m currently reading the book Imperium by Francis Parker Yockey, and this song relates to parts of it as it discusses the focus on self indulgence that a decadent society creates in an individual. It is this weakness that in fact creates the complacency of many who do see what is going on in society but look the other way, as they only care about their own self gratification. It is a stark difference to those honored in the second song posted below. The song Iceland is about those of our Folk who had the will power and strength to survive all mother nature threw at them and settled in the beauty of the “Land of Ice”.

Condemned To Walk Alone
Callously whispered the worlds of contempt
Into your minds, with malicious intent
Dream while you slumber of a world they`ll create
Then sleep walk through life, in a oblivious state

When will you finally see
Their world not truly free
I am flesh and bone
Condemned to walk alone

Obey the captors that strangle your mind
How will you see, when their veil keeps you blind
Euphoric lies are taken to breath
Yet, what is life, when your dying a slow death

When will you finally see
Their world not truly free
I am flesh and bone
Condemned to walk alone

Beneath the blue skies, you’ll bask so naive
Not wary of the paling tranquility
The calm is now, but near is the storm
Soon the war will come to form

When you hear the wind whisper all around
Beware the voice that beckons you bound
Though unseen it is as it passes by
You’ll sway like the trees’ ‘neath the dead skies

For the glimmer of gold don’t sell your soul
Or abandon your mind to their control
Assimilation their fallacy
Take hold of the chance to truly live free

This land of prosperity wears a facade
Meant to pacify you with greed as your god
You’ll work for their enemies like total slaves
Bred from the candles to toil to your graves

Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone
Condemned … to walk alone

When will you finally see
Their world’s not truly free
I am flesh and bone
Condemned to walk alone

Iceland
Land of fire, land of snow
The paling moon, so brightly glows
The howling wolves, sing their songs
Of timeless hunger, through nights long

Through bitter nights, of winters cold
The strong survived, and they were bold
Men of iron, with will of gods
Would flourish still, against the odds

Land of fire, land of snow
To golden seas, clean rivers flow
From the valleys low, to mountains high
All is pure, from land to sky

Awe is splendor, but it’s known
That life and death, share this home
All that strived, to tame this land
Did do so, by their own hands

Realms of life, realms of death
Can give you all, or steal your breath
Chaos, and harmony
Coexists, endlessly
Land of fire, land of ice
Strong of ill, breaks winters vice
Through stings the air, and solid earth
Its a struggle, til springs rebirth

This land of chaos in harmony
Full of great sagas to be told
Of warriors who braved the seas
Never fearing the oceans bold
Our fathers from these lands came
With courage in their hearts
And this land of snow they tamed
While each man did his part

So fear not but praise the coming cold
For this is when the night is clear
And old instincts soon take hold
At yule each earths new year

Remember from whence you came
And that when the Nordic wind blow
The lands of ice from where we came
Are much more than lands of snow

When the midnight raven calls
In the north’s silvery moonlight
And the snow begins to fall
Upon Midgard tonight
Take time now to remember
When the Nordic winds blow
In the chill of December
A land rich with fire and snow
