Track Name: The Summoning/Troll
And so the Wizard Invoked:

I Call Today Upon The Strength of Heaven
Light of The Sun
Radiance of the Moon
Splendor of Fire
Speed of Lightning
Swiftness of Wind
Depth of Sea
Stability of Earth
and the Firmness
of Stone…

Swallower of the heaven-wheel*
can’t you see, can’t you feel
I’m alive

Sunshine be my bane
bind me to this earth again

Under mushroom root I have lain
now I reanimate from this slime
Right on time…

Destroyer of the storm sun
bind us to the black again
make us believe you
as the thunder rolls in closer
to our door

Wizard’s teeth gleam bright
in the dying forest light
golden staff and necklace jingle-jangle
behold the abomination born
son of none
lightning flash
thunder roar
and nothing more

Swallower of the heaven-wheel
can’t you see, can’t you feel
I’m alive

Go do your worst
Find the witch
Before the flood comes
Now, Troll, go do your worst
Before the flood comes washing down

*Prose Edda (13th Century Icelandic text)
Track Name: The Witch
All of my life-force
Ground into dust
Heavy smoke in my lungs
and poison in the bellies of my young

Now I know
The Witch had her spell
on my eye
I was blind but now I see
Clearly

Once in the forest
You can never return
Winter is turning her head
and the leaves are falling blood-red

Now I know
The Witch had her spell
on my eye
I was blind but now I see
Clearly
For the first time…

Drifting away on a smoke screen
Hallow this moment to rest
The herb restores my mind
The Infinite Hammer of Death
I will possess, I will possess,
I will possess!

Now I know…
Track Name: An Eternal Haunting
Will someone show me the way?
Lost in this wilderness of hate
I am stumbling along this narrow road
Waiting for the Witch’s ambush, the time never slows

I flee far
from their wicked destruction
I’ll go to the dead forest where she
can never find me

La…la…la la la la…

Will someone show me the way?
Lost in this wilderness of hate
I am stumbling along this narrow road
Waiting for the Witch’s ambush, the time never slows
Track Name: Infinite Death
"The sun will be dark
and the moon will turn into blood”*
This battlefield is the Troll’s to be won
Surfers and stoners and wizard’s desire
The Grim Reaper Rides upon a Wave of Fire

Spell upon Spell
That Old Witch Cast my way
But my Infinite Death
Hammer Smashed her evil face
She burned down my forest
And built her tower to the sky
Now she lies in state
while the whole crying world dies

Children listen…yeah!

Glacial frosts melting away
Mother earth endures this human rape
How can you sleep
when extinction’s at your front door?

Sailing away
To meet your maker
Sailing away
To meet your god
Sailing away
To meet your god…

People c’mon!

A pale horse gallops toward you
Its Rider dressed in black
He's coming for your life
and he's never turning back
He's got an eye on your heart
and a sickle for your soul

You can’t ever outrun him
and he’ll never let you go…

Infinite Death!
Infinite Death!

*Joel 2:31 (Old Testament)
Track Name: Savage Thunder
Creeping for days
It’s a real panic now
The ever-flowing tide will never recede

You must believe me
I have this power
to unmake
your world

Spiral of contempt
Old gods speak through me now

Cloudburst is forming
The veil has been torn
and the witch is overthrown

On my own…

Sunrise won’t turn me to stone
Because there will never be another one

Eye of the titan
Eye of the storm
A Troll I was, A Wizard Reborn!
Reborn, oh yeah!

Sailing away on
the back of a dragon
watching the rainfall
on you all…

Sunrise won’t turn me to stone…
I’m off to another planet
to find where that wizard’s gone!
