Jörmungandr 02:18
I wrap myself around your world Desperate to keep you close Bite my own tail lest I slip And say something that will make you go I am patient, I'm devoted I will wait until the perfect moment You sent your champion to find me And drag me up into the light But I can't abandon my post Before the final fight I am loyal, I am stalwart Though I be reviled, though I be hurt And until that day comes And my body blocks out the sun I will be here, ever near, ever yours Oh until that day comes And my body blocks out the sun I will be here, ever near, ever yours Yeah until that day comes And my body blocks out the sun I will be here, ever near, ever yours

This house is haunted By the spirits of our arguments The echoes of our yelling never stop You can never admit That you might be wrong And I don't know when to let things drop But when the Old Ones come We will bite our tongues And alone in our house we will dream We're always quick To draw on one another Afraid to let our weaknesses be seen As if confessing To our human follies Would have us burst apart at the seams But when the Old Ones come We will put away our guns And alone in our house we will dream Dream of cities lost beneath the waves Let go of petty squabbles Stop assigning blame Dance with abandon into the flames On that day On that day 'Cause when the Old Ones come Our race will be run This curse will come undone Our struggle will be won Yeah when the Old Ones come We will finally be one And alone in our house we will dream

We started this dance so long ago Who can remember how it began The force that drew us together Made no concessions for our plans Was I subsumed into you Or were you absorbed by me Our light burns all the brighter Whatever the case may be When our end comes We will light up the sky They will see us And they'll wonder why Our demise will be so beautiful Though they won't know 'til we're long gone What is born of our destruction Will live on

I look out over the plains Scattered piles of bleached remains Are all that's left of the gore Deposited by a thousand wars This temple has been razed So many times throughout the years We build it back up from the rubble And make mortar with our tears I see banners on the wind And though our garrison has thinned We will fight along these walls And meet again in the Iron Hall Once more unto the breach Though all the world assail us We will dive into the fray Even if the spirits fail us
5.
You and I at the end of the world When the trumpets blow and the flags are unfurled You and I at the end of the world Dancing on our own graves The seas boil and the sky goes dark The stars form an arcane mark The seas boil and the sky goes dark But we just dive right in The serpent rises out of the deep Woken from its eon-long sleep The serpent rises out of the deep But we just wave hello Gods and heroes, they fall by the score The Earth is riven down to its core Gods and heroes, they fall by the score But we've already forgotten their names You and I at the end of it all Waiting for that last shoe to fall You and I at the end of it all Having the time of our lives
