lyrics

NOT ONE STEP BACKWARD

King Harold fights with a nation under his crown
Willing and desperate to defend this holy land each and every town
We Northmen here to claim back the Nordic Empire
Are isolated, cut off, held on Stamford Bridge, shall burn in English fire.

300 of us stand alone on this bridge,
One by one reaching our final resting place
Even with so few we war on and die with furied grace
Not one step backwards, Hardrada shall never surrender come what may.

Seas of arrows come from the skies,
One of which shall bring our final demise,

A chilling cry is heard,
Hardrada is fallen
Hardrada has fallen
The last King of the Vikings has fallen...

This war drags on cold, frostbitten
Lost in this land none are forgiven
Soon we will know
Our fate is calling
Soon we will know
Our fate is dawning

I look to my past, feels long ago
Now we are dying, Spirit is low
Soon we will know
Our fate is calling
Soon we will know
Our fate is dawning

Now we know what honour is
The friends we buried died for this
Soon we will know our light is fading
Soon we will know Odin is calling

This raid of rage of pillage is gone
Hardrada's ships have sailed back home
Leaving us here, now we are dying
And up to these skies, now we are riding...
