the serpent ring lyrics – flight of sleipnir

within the void, the mighty deep
lies below a serpent ring
beneath its coils rest earth and stone
against its skin black waters flow

it reaches beyond the grasp of man
stretching further than a mortal’s glance
no wisdom will see its final day
for it ends when time began

buried beneath the darkened tides
lurks unseen beneath the waves
one wraps the weight of the heavy earth
with endless life and endless thirst

from it’s origin stemmed twilight’s end
where dead men heed the final call
oceans shroud the infinite ring
while mortal blood stains eroding sands
