The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - "Sons of Skyrim" Song Lyrics

Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin,

Naal ok zin, los vahriin,

Wah dien vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal,

Ahrk fin norok paal graan,

Fod nust hon zindro zaan,

Dovahkiin, fah hin kogaan mu draal.

Ahrk fin kel lost prodah,

Do ved viing ko fin krah,

Tol fod zyemah win kien meyz fundien

Alduin fyen do jun,

Kruziik vokun staadnau,

Voth aan bahlok wah diivon fin lien.


Translation

Dragonborn, Dragonborn,

By his honor, is sworn,

To keep evil forever at bay,

And the fiercest foes rout,

When they hear triumph's shout,

Dragonborn, for your blessing we pray,

And the Scrolls have foretold,

Of black wings in the cold,

That when brothers wage war come unfurled,

Alduin bane of kings,

Ancient shadow unbound,

With a hunger to swallow the world.
The complete lyrics for the teaser trailer of Bethesda's upcoming epic, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The lyrics were printed on the back of GameInformer's newest magazine, and a translation puzzle was posted on their website here: [link]

I have to admit, it took me about two hours to fully decode the message, but it was well worth it. :boogie: Anyway, enjoy the lyrics and see what ideas you can come up with regarding the story for Skyrim.

Skyrim is scheduled to be released on November 11th, 2011.

Watch the teaser trailer here: [link]

The Elder Scrolls, Skyrim, and everything associated with these names belong to Bethesda.

This song has ranked up as my favorite video game song. I know it sounds stupid, but I always get a little chill when I hear it. I've been looking for the lyrics, and I wasn't disappointed at all.

How does me not liking skyrim have to do with me prefering a console instead of a computer.

Answered your own question sir, console skyrim had so many things wrong with it you couldn't enjoy it (on PS3 more,because of texture/shadow fails, and just in general for inventory and a lot of other things) while on PC you have enhanced graphics, the ability to mod, and for the creation kit was just released, so mods can be made by complete noobs, and those who know how to mod can do it easier, so there is limitless content/bug fixes on the PC that Xbox and PS3 will never get

i am not flaming, im just saying, console version could have been held at a lot higher standard,but so could the PC, but the PC had a community behind it to fix it, easy as that

I don't see how that has to do with him not liking the game... Maybe he just doesn't like RPG's, maybe he didn't like the Story, consoles and PCs have nothing to do with someone liking a game or not.

This is what I got from the entire song:

Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin,
naal ok zin los vahriin.
Wah dein vokul,
Mahfaeraak ahst vaal.
ahrk fin norok paal graan.
Fod nust hon zindro zaan,
Dovahkiin, fah hin
kogaan mu draal.
Huzrah nu,
kul do od.
Wah aan bok lingrah vod,
ahrk fin tey
baziik fun
do fin gein!
Wo lost fron,
wah ney dov,
ahrk fin reyliik so jul,
Voth aan suleyk
wah ronit faal krien!
Fod zeymah win kein meyz fundein!
Alduin, feyn do jun,
kruziik vokun staadnau,
voth aan bahlok wah diivon fin lein!
Nuz aan sul fent alok
fod fin vu dovah nok
fen kos nahlot mahfaeraak ahrk ruz!
Paz Keizaal fen kos stin nol bein Alduin jot!
Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin!
naal ok zin los vahriin.
Wah dein vokul,
Mahfaeraak ahst vaal.
ahrk fin norok paal graan.
Fod nust hon zindro zaan,
Dovahkiin, fah hin
kogaan mu draal.


~Translation~

Dragonborn, Dragonborn,
by his honour is sworn,
To keep evil forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear the trumpet's shout,
Dragonborn, for your blessings we pray!

Hearken now, sons of snow,
to an age long ago.
And the tale, boldly told,
of the one
who was kin to both wyrm and the races of man
with a power to rival the Sun?

When brothers wage war come unfurled.
Alduin, Bane of Kings,
ancient shadow unbound,
with a hunger to swallow the world!

But a day shall arise
when the dark Dragon's lies
will be silenced forever and then!
Fair Skyrim will be free from Alduin's maw!

Dragonborn, Dragonborn,
by his honour is sworn,
To keep evil forever at bay!
And the fiercest foes rout when they hear the trumpet's shout,
Dragonborn, for your blessings we pray!
