where cold winds blow lyrics – darkthrone

where cold wings blow i (was) laid to rest
i can not reach my rusty weapons
the blood and sword that guided my path
for they drowned in the sands of wisdom

i was, indeed, a king of the flesh
my blackened edges; still they were sharp
honoured by the carnal herds
but asketh thou: closed are the gates?

my mind cut my winged weapons
and teeth that was my pride
and from the forest all would hear:
“wisdom opens the gate for the king”

my weapons sighted – my tears they tasted
summon my warriors – to the land of desire
to the domain of hate – where cold winds blew
for l*st for h*ll – we rode with the north wind

only i could accomplish a f*cken self-deceit
there are only two paths – the mind or the sword
and the mind was open like the sights in a dream
but the sword was like a stone around my neck

i entered the soul of the snake
and slept with the armageddish wh*r*
(but) without my throne and my weapons;
where cold winds blow became my grave
