The Weavers      The Weavers MP3

The Fates their blazing arrows cast
Lash the future, cull the past
Bring brave Einherjar to their doom
Send companions to ease Hel's gloom

The spinners' tales are ever told
In warriors' dare to breach the fold
Test in sword and shriven spear
'Gainst the thing all mortals fear

Kingdoms rise and fall and clash
By warriors' steel and maidens' sash
Yet behind all labors ageless hand
Works the loom and guides the land

King or Thrall, it matters not
Not a strand is loose, none forgot
By luck or worth is fate's decree
How bright you shine on the tapestry

Matthias Wilson

The Weavers - Song version
by Michaela Macha

The Norns their blazing arrows cast
Lash the future, cull the past,
Bring brave Einherjar to their doom
And send companions to ease Hel's gloom.

The spinners' tales are ever told
In warriors' dare to breach the hold,
Testing sword and shriven spear
Against the thing all mortals fear.

Kingdoms rise and fall and clash
By warriors' steel and maidens' sash,
Yet behind all an ageless hand
Does work the loom and guide the land.

King or thrall, it matters not,
No strand is loose, and none forgot.
By luck or worth it's fate's decree
How bright you shine on the tapestry.
