Erick, seeing the despair in the eyes of his men, tries to breathe in some courage invoking the forgiveness of the gods.
My men all died… of my folly...
as they followed to their demise.
I dreamt this odyssey,
They all died…
It was you who told us we'd live forever. I failed.
That our names would be in the songs of the bards (utterly failed)
But I could not foresee the choler, The anger, the ire, the fury
That my impudence would cause. That they'd all die for me.
What have I done…
It was me who told you you'd live forever (You failed)
That your names would be in the songs of the bards (Utter failure)
But I was wrong (You were blind), By my pride (You transgressed)
As I thought I was blessed leading you to death
O Baldur forgive my mistake, I confess.
Now I can feel the colors that through this pain I see.
I can appreciate the worth of what you've given me.
