​Five Hundred And One

This song is by Turisas and appears on the album The Varangian Way (2007).

Original video
New friends
Last night
An offer was made

Nordbrikt
Would leave
Five hundred strong

Long is the hour when lying awake
Sleeping is hard when so much is at stake
I've reached my goal, called the final door
Behind it, three doors more

Lying in my bed
Thinking of the things they said
Time is running out
What to do? I moon about

Out in the open sea I've swum without a sight,
A sight of an opposite shore, a sight of some light
Turning back, staying here, my strength is running out
Forward, or I drown

Rising from my bed
Thinking of the things they said
The moment draws nigh
One chance a year when the water is high

Corridors, I run
Heavy doors, which one?

Where did I come from? Was I already here?
It all seems familiar, yet I have no idea

New friends
Last night
An offer was made

Nordbrikt
Would leave
Five hundred and one

"Joy and sorrow we have encountered
Always stood as one
Your heart you follow, and maybe tomorrow
You will find what you seek.
Go now, and don't look back!
Bring my greetings to the Greek King!"

The wind flew the raven banner with pride
Eagles were soaring aloft
Filled with hope and excitement side by side
Five hundred and one cast off

So long is the way to the unknown
Long is the way we have come
At the head of the ships a horn was blown
We sailed off with the morning sun
Five hundred and one
