Lífvana Jörð

Það var hér
Sem vatn um dali rann
Sólin skeið í heiði
Sá tími er liðinn
Jörðin lögð í eyði
 
Svartir hrafnar
Sveima í leit að æti
Landið þurrt sem eyðimörk
Stormar geysa
Afmynda yfirborð jarðar
Farvegir fyrndar bera aur og ryk
 
Lífvana jörð
Sviðin jörð
 
Djúpt í iðrum gils
Við hamra hafs sem áður var
Skimar vera grá og mögur
Grimmdin holdi klædd
Vitstola af hungri
 
Trú og spilling
Valdur grimmdarverka
Helför allra þjóða
Eftir el neitt

Lifeless Earth

It was here
That water ran through valleys
The sun sprang from a clear sky
That time has passed
The earth now lays abandoned
 
Black crows
Hovering, looking for food
The land dry like a desert
Storms wreaking havoc
Distorting the surface of the earth
The ancient channels carrying mud and dust
 
Lifeless earth
Scorched earth
 
Deep into the intestines of a ravine
By the cliff of the sea that once was
Gleams are grey and thin
Cruelty made flesh
Mad with hunger
 
Faith and depravity
Gave birth to atrocities
Holocaust of wholes nations
Nothing remains
