The Mists are closing in,
gathering home their dead
but I still live and I shall fight
another day.

At harvest time they came
marauding through our land
we gathered our troops to meet their might
to make our stand.

The Mists are closing in,
gathering home their dead
but I still live and I shall fight
another day.

Our battle cries were fierce
forswearing fear of pain
many of my comrades bled and died
but I remain.

The Mists are closing in,
gathering home their dead
but I still live and I shall fight
another day.

Surrounded was our Prince,
yet held he off the foe
six warriors he sent on death’s dark road
and brought them low.

The Mists are closing in,
gathering home their dead
but I still live and I shall fight
another day.

Today in times of peace
came a messenger untrue
with treacherous blade he stabbed our liege,
our goldfriend slew.

The Mists are closing in,
gathering home their dead
but I still live and I shall fight
another day.

Thorfinn died this day,
his princess stands bereft,
we remember, we shall avenge,
we who are left.
