Borknagar - Gods Of My World Lyrics




"The Gods are great. I am the greatest"

Mother of earth, mother of all
Father of air, father of all
Brother in flames
Sister of seas

Gods of my world, behold...
Pour rain on the fire
The fire that burns
The day of my birth

Gods of my world, behold...
Aflame my desire
To grow and to breed
The wisdom I need

Gather in the storms asunder
Condone the cosmic hibernation
Steam of rivers, the hive of oceans
Praise the fathers of all significance
The reckless burden of existence
Face the rise of the furious
The amend forces
The amend course

Gods of my world, behold...
Pour rain on the fire
The fire that burns
The day of my birth

Gods of my world, behold...
Aflame my desire
To grow and to breed
The wisdom I need

Gather in the storms asunder
Condone the cosmic hibernation
Steam of rivers, the hive of oceans

Recollection, my soul connection
The thrive of reflection, affection

Forever you'll be the tongue of mine
Through time and existence
By instincts divine

Forever you'll be the sight of mine
Through time and existence
By visions divine

Borknagar Gods Of My World Comments
  1. Paul Mares

    Fuuuuuu I've searched for the songname and the band for more than a decade.
    I had only this one song on a compilation CD from a former bandmember who I've lost all contact to, and no info to this great masterpiece...
    Borknagar ...huh; deffinitely heard of them by name, but never heard the music itself because I thought it was just another trve norsk cvlt black metal band

  2. Corbin Deutsch

    Probably my favorite Borknagar album.

    "The gods are great, I am the greatest"
    Mother of earth, mother of all
    Father of air, father of all
    Brother in flames
    Sister of seas
    Gods of my world, behold...
    Flame my desire
    To grow and to breed
    The wisdom I need

    Gather in the storms asunder
    Condone the cosmic hibernation
    Steam of rivers, the hive of oceans
    Praise the father's of all significance
    The reckless burden of existence
    I ace the rise of the furious
    The amend forces
    The amend course

    Gods of my world, behold...
    Pour rain on the fire
    The fire that burns
    The day of my birth

    Gods of my world, behold...
    Flame my desire
    To grow and to breed
    The wisdom I need

    Gather in the storms asunder
    Condone the cosmic hibernation
    Steam of rivers, the hive of oceans

    Recollection, my soul connection
    The thrive of reflection, affection

    Forever you'll be the tongue of mine
    Through time and existence
    By instincts divine

    Forever you'll be the sight of mine
    Through time and existence

    Gather in storms asunder
    Condone the cosmic hibernation
    Steam of rivers, the hive of oceans

  17. Eduardo Redux

    Borknagar would be so cool if Garm hasnt left the band, replacing him with Vintersorg

    Jorge Jesus

    @Eduardo Domingues
    vintersorg replaced I.C.S Vortex :)

    hewhoiswithoutname

    Eduardo Domingues True... Though Garm would've still been better...

  18. frrrrt11116969696942

    when i was 18, i'd drive around listening to this album.  i did that again nearly 12 years later.  probably will ten +/- years from now.  always will be a great album.

  23. TheIzaam

  24. Diego Angee

    Same thing has happened to me with other bands,,,, now I listen very carefully before discarding,,lol

  25. Bearded Bushman

    Gods of my World \m/ Truly Epic

  26. Sarah Rose

    One of a kind. Truly a masterpiece.

  27. Keyser Soeze

    Good stuff from the good old days :)

  28. Ricardo Lozano

    its so different from traditional metal, but yet so great, today i started listeningto this band and i am amazed by it

  29. Fatty Pancakes

    holy crap!!!!!! 1:00

  30. Tiago Jordão

    @hellfencer gods are not what comes with enslavement, economical power is what comes with enslavement, gods are just the means powerful people use to get there. If it were not the gods, then they would come up with something else.

    But I believe the primitive idea of gods didn't come up for this reason so, even if I don't believe them, I still think they work for great lyrical themes, if used in the right way.

  31. Tiago Jordão

    @RAacousticfreak Sure, I didn't take offense, My comment was as peaceful as yours. :)

  32. Tiago Jordão

    @RAacousticfreak there are many forms of christianism and many churches...

  33. Tiago Jordão

    @hellfencer , this is just a song with lyrics about gods. It's just lyrics, like a movie is just a movie and a book is just a book. Romantic ideals are just that: ideals, but that doesn't mean you can't get into them for the purpose of bringing more interest and richness to your life, like this song does for example. Imagination is as important as real life. Besides, you have the word "Hell" in your nickname.

  34. bagramon sama

    borknagar rules in the viking metal :)

  35. Tyvanius

    the end of this song should be a 12 minute song in its own. that old-world sounding melody is hypnotizing.

  36. Bearded Bushman

    Epicly good song \m/

  37. Blake Asheart

    @rachskald Same here.

  38. Mario Alarcón

    The Gods Are Great - Borknagar Are the Greatest!!!!

  39. Skirge

    I bought this album a long time ago, not knowing what to expect... I gave it a few listens, then more or less discarded it because I was put of by some of the elements in the music. Now, 5 years later, I found it again in a dark corner of a closet, dusted it off (literally) and find myself in posession of a masterpiece I will be playing to destruction :)
