O yee one eyed old man.You who see it all
You who see the past and all to be
Say,yee one eyed old man. For I need to know
Tell me which path fate has chosen for me
Say does the Northstar still shine on me
Say will I set my loved ones free
O yee one eyed old man.Of yee our elders told
You have been since land and sky was one
And if you really knows all that will be,tell me
What the future wants with this young no one`s son
Say does the Northstar still shine on me
What for you see in store for me
"Questions, questions. Many you ask
About the future and some of the past.
Few have seen what I see,fewer still will ever know.
I gave an eye to see a better
And you thirst fo knowlenge grows.
But you,my chld, who treads the road of pain.
Who have felt such anger. Such that bears no name.
Thee shall I nurse as if you were my own son.
And this very night your training will already have begun.
For I have seen you come for a thousand years or so.
And the gods have told me to teach you all that
I possess and know.
And though me eye no longer sees
My hand held out in front of me,
I sill gaze crystal clear at all
That moral man cannot see.
And I see you riding up on a stallion as white as snow
Which the speed of the winds and endurance unold
And you wield a sword of steel forget in fire an ice.
And the cry of a warrior you sound
And victory is in our eyes.
Hear me my son,for you are the chosen one."
