To Ragnarök it has already commenced Fimbulvetr the Winter of Winds, the Sword and the Wolf, has come. What meets the blue penetrating eyes is the boundless wild land Through battlefields resounds hoof beat of horses of Valhalla
Lives were gone and stars fell The way she has passed glows red with blood. They would live, die and meet again. To protect their brother-in-arms of the day before from being carrions and blood of the day after.
Warriors, take your swords and fare forth. Yes, you have got two choices, Live or Die. Proudly, gallantly she beats her wings. No longer would she look back.
Her pallid hair flows. Silver is her spear. At twilight what would Valkyrja think of? Every time her armor glitters Many a one would be sore at heart.
She spread and flapped her wings. The days she has passed would crumble Never forget her who has seen off the brave nameless heroes. Burn with flames, be chilled, and engrave it on yourselves. Yes, you have got two choices, live “a captive life” or “struggle to” death As the wings on her back have turned black. Already the dice is cast.
What she recalls in her mind is the name of the one she loved bygone days What well up are the tears she thought no more to be left. The dead sleeps under the rows of stones, Slightly soiled are the curved Runes
Warriors take your swords and fare forth. Yes, you have got two choices, live “in pain” or die “to rest”. Proudly, gallantly she beats her wings. This is A Lesedrama of Valkyrja.
Romaji Lyrics (translated by Blacksaingrain)
Shuumatsu e no hibuta wa mohaya kirareta Kaze tsurugi ookami no Fimbulvetr Gunjou no gankou ni miwatenu kouya Tenma no hizume ga senjou ni hibiku
Inochi kiete hoshi wa ochite Toorisugita michi wa chi de somaru Ikite shinde mata deau Kinou no toma ga asu no chiniku to kasanu you ni to
Ikusabito mukae yo tsurugi wo nigire Sou sentakushi wa ikiru ka shinu ka no Hokoritakaku kedakaku habataku Mou ushiro wa furimukanai
Aoku tanabiku kami hakugin no yari Tasogare nani wo omou Valkyrja Kanojo no yoroi ga kirameku tabi ni Ikuta no mono ga kanashimi ni kureru
Tsubasa hiroge hatameite Toorisugita hibi wa kuzure yuku Wasurenaide yuuki aru Na mo naki yuusha tachi wo miokutta ushirosugata wo
Moeagare itetsuke sono mi ni kizame Sou sentakushi wa ikiru ka shinu ka no Kuroku irozuku senaka no hane ni Mou sai wa nagerareta no
Kokoro idaite omoidasu Tooi hi ni aishita mono no na wo Kareta namida wakiagaru Shibito ga nemuru ishi noraretsu usuyogoreta kokuin
Ikusabito mukae yo tsurugi wo nigire Sou sentakushi wa ikiru ka shinu ka no Hokoritakaku kedakaku habataku Ikusaotome no reeze
