The Charon Picture

"In Greek mythology, Charon was the ferryman of Hades who carried souls of the newly deceased across the river that divided the world of the living from the world of the dead. "


alt lys er svunnet hen "all your life is faded"

glinsende månelys ovenfor driver
frostlagte stier viser vei
svarte sjeler farer henover natten
inn gjennom skodde heim

alt har svartnet
alt lys er svunnet hen
lødig trer vi nå inn i riket
i minne om at våre spor blir fulgt

omgitt av sorgens dis
skrider ferden frem
som en skare av likkledde skrømt
vandrer vi jervens hjem

brisen fører oss over norske myrer
forbi hver en tåkegrend
med hatet i våre harme sinn
reiser vi for aldri å komme igjen

translation
"glimmering moonlight drifting up above us
paths covered with frost leads the way
black souls now travel through the night
in through the valley of fog

all has blackened
all light has faded away
pure we now enter the kingdom
remembering that our tracks will be followed

surrounded by sorrow's haze
the journey moves on
as a band of corpse-dressed ghouls
we wander the wolverine's home

the breeze takes us over norwegian marshes
past every misty hamlet
with the hate in our angry minds
we now leave for never to return"
