Take my body to Avalon
Place it on the pyre
When my shell disappears
Drink loudly and sing
Raise your swords and axes
As my ash is taken by the wind
Laugh like men
Wave me goodbye
To the gates of Valhalla
A warriors end
To join the ranks of the afterlife
Guardian angels of the living
No sorrow
Just joy
Not gone
Just altered
