So I read the lyrics to Lost Saga...The ending track, "The Lost Saga", is the longest song on the album. In the liner notes, Kotipelto states that writing the lyrics, which deal with Vikings and battles, was the "hardest work he has ever done". He spent four nights researching historical references.
I sail away from my homeland
My mission's to raid and plunder
I fight, I will rage, I will sunder
I hail the Thunder God
I will raise my horn
And I'll drink the ale
For the dead I mourn
For the gods I hail
It's been a long day
Do you think it really took four nights to come up with this bullshit? Discuss.
