What are these lyrics trying to say?

Asked by dopeguru (1894points) March 26th, 2019

“Brothers, I am calling
From the valley of the kings
With nothing to atone
A dark march lies ahead
Together we will ride like thunder from the sky
May your sword stay wet
Like a young girl in her prime
Hold your hammers high”

You know the lyric I’m referring to… When a young girl is in her prime, does that mean period? And what does that have to do with anything?

I think that “young girl in her prime” is talking about girls in their late teens and early twenties, when they are nubile and most fertile – the traditional peak years of fecundity.

“Hold your hammers high” refers (not very subtlely) to erect male penii.

If it means her period, it alluds to the swords staying covered in fresh blood, presumably the blood of your slain foes.

@ragingloli I believe is actually right, this Manowar we are referencing here.

I would say it meant penatrated.
Ie. Penetrated lots of humans, as a young girl in her prime potentially would have been.

Or, because she would have been on heat a lot, been wet a lot, thus may my sword be wet with blood and hungry for its purpose. Bit weird like, but it points to a primal urge and purpose for being. May point more to menstral than to sexual fluid, and or both.
