As a hungry wolf with an old man's teeth
I run freezing cold in caves forever
Crushing the sun, the daylight and all time
When the weather is clear
I live in night and darkness
That's why I'm still here
Iceland was my home with seals in the fjords
My winter's only thought is
Fleeing from the hordes
They may come anytime to kill me like a dog Always on guard, I pray for another day of fog

As the outlaw I am I shout at the mighty Thor Greatest God of thunder I can't take it anymore Take me home where smoke rises from the halls Make me welcome again within the Chieftan's walls

Drown his treacherous wife the adulterous queen Who told the king what a rapist I had been
She lied she was wrong, she asked me to seduce her
In her game of sex I was bound to be the loser She harmed her husband's skald
Caused the poet's disgrace
Outlawed at Althingi
I can never show my face at Reykjanes again
Lest I want to endure all the evils
She accused me of doing to her
More bone than man I hail the Gods of the north Avenge my injustices I beg you to come forth Misfortune loves both fool and wise
For seven winters I have strayed the land of ice A master of the word and a man of the sword
Of tongue and steel
Many times I proved to be Lord
Gods of the north I beg you come forth
More bone than man, Odin I hail you
As a slave on the run I must stay out of sight Our father make my destiny right
That in none of the worlds whose number is nine Another innocent must suffer a fate like mine
