Katso kuinka hohkaa kansi taivaan. Kutsuu se meitä tumman virran taa. Heikot vaipuu kuohuun sysimustaan, Sankarit kun astuu joen rantaan. Halki iäisyyden laulu raikaa Kutsuu se veljiä tumman virran taa." [English translation:] "Above the darkened woods, blackened ravens sing As flows the people's blood, to melt these frozen grounds. See how glows the sky, how curve the heavens above us. It beckons, calling us, to the lands beyond the dark stream. Those weakened, to the darkest of streams shall drown, And when heroes, those riverbanks will reach. The sounds of singing, across eternity shall echo Calling our brothers, to journey, afar, beyond the dark stream." The Longest Journey (Heathen Throne Part II) "Could my ruin have come? My day of trouble had arrived In these tuonele cabins, These abodes of the dead, The dead land." - Kalevala Far beyond the dark stream pagan souls will Roam those cold lands wild and free. Wait for the sign, a blood red sky, Then beyond the dark stream we will ride. Ooooo! The path of mortals So narrow and brutal. Only bravest of them all Will find true valours. Decaying souls of men Who trust in false omens Will drown in the stream With their untrue beliefs. He's been drifting For so long Searching for the land Where heroes roam. In the horizon The last ray of light, A breeze from the other side Before he dies. Dividing walls of stone, Eternal heathen throne, Beneath the cold starlight Revealed for the purest sight. Through constant affliction Towards alleviations, When a searing star is near Carry on, you're almost there. Far beyond the dark stream We'll meet again, Across the wilderness, And we will be home. Ooooo! The longest journey of them all Has to be made all alone. A flame in the skyline reaching the stars Guiding the seeker through the night. Far beyond the dark stream We'll meet again, Across the wilderness, And we will be home! Gather your strength, Don't be afraid. Far beyond the dark stream We'll meet again! ***IMPORTANT***: This Song Is Not My Ownership, It Belongs To Respected Owners: Ensiferum, Spinefarm Records And/Or Other Owners.
