Mare Nostrum Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Mare Nostrum (6:47)
Across the sea they live, plotting against us all
A constant shade laid over our empire
A rusty nail into the eternal city's crown
Now it's time to wield the deadly iron and to sail on

A thousand ships, the Roman pride,
By Scipio's hand they're led to war

Rise, rise, let Carthago pay
Sail, sail, across the sea
Rise, rise, let Carthago fall
Fight, fight, 'till the end

The Cato's words burn in the heart of every man
The salt must be spread on the ruins, nothing will remain

Oh mighty lord of shadows, Hades, we're calling you
Come witness our triumph
Carthago delenda est

Neither gods must dare Roma,
On your knees or die

And once again the eagle hammered on these wasted land
Will show the power of Roman soldier's steel

Rise, rise, let Carthago pay
Sail, sail, across the sea
Rise, rise, let Carthago fall
Fight, fight, 'till the end
2. Neon Karma (3:56)
Machines are treading on our ruins,
By human hands they were built to serve us all
Face the evolution, time to leave our thrones behind
This is the day when the robots walk the earth

No flesh, no races in the age of Cyber Christ
No blood through the bodies, Neon Karma is closing in

No room for weak emotions, pain or tears
The mankind spawn, watching us through metal eyes

Welcome my sons
My new messiah

Staring at the clouds where laser angels fly
Future looks so bright
Gaze into a moon whose circuits light the night
Gleaming through the rain
We celebrate our end

One mind to rule the nations
Mankind: inferior breed
One doom: annihilation
Mankind: evolution's prey
Let us burn

No flesh, no races in the age of Cyber Christ
No blood through the bodies, Neon Karma is closing in
Neon Karma is closing in, let your kingdom come
3. Legacy of the Snake (5:14)
Stones on the altars are the icons where you live,
The only way for the disciples to sanctify the snakes
You keep many treasures,
The foundations of your realm are made of gold
Bhogavati, where dreams chase reality

Ananta, the snake, where the master sleep
Kaliya, the king, slave to Krisna's dance
By water, by fire, the underworld they rule
By water, by fire, by fire, by fire

... All enslaved by Shiva's grace

Gods, watch upon us,
Let us reach the Shakti and leave all this pain
Called existence, let us be one with you
Bowls are now empty, we deprive our bodies of all of the food for you glory
Great Naga come free us all, at last �¢ï¿½ï¿½ free us all, now

Kadru

Rise, ancient gods of Nirvana from above they stare
Cosmic lights drop on the earth from the lord Ganesh sacred eyes

Come worship, come worship the Naga's flame
Their karma, their karma lives on
We bow down, we bow down to Naga's faith, praying the gods

Stones on the altars are the icons where you live,
The only way for the disciples to sanctify the snakes
You keep many treasures,
The foundations of your realm are made of gold
Sacred Naga let us reach your splendour

Ananta, the snake, where the master sleep
Kaliya, the king, slave to Krisna's dance
By water, by fire, the underworld they rule
By water, by fire, by fire, by fire
4. Emet (5:26)
I am the soulless muddy giant
From the water and the earth I was born
Yes, I am a creature of the rabbi,
To protect the walls of the ghetto I live

Son of holy writings, where magic and pure faith become as one
I am Yossel
See my body growing, I'm changing my stature day by day
I am the golem

To serve you all �¢ï¿½ï¿½ this is my mission
I'll serve you all �¢ï¿½ï¿½ no, I don't want the shem to be torn asunder

Restless and obedient, the guardian of the synagogue I'll be forever
Even when my body will return to ashes and to dust I'll be there

Ritual has begun �¢ï¿½ï¿½ Emet

Spell all the letters of the name divine,
The sacred mystery of god
With the clay of the moldava
Creation and denial must be engraved on my forehead
The menorah's burning, the ritual begins,
In circles he walks around me while praying
My lord, I'm breathing!

I am the soulless muddy giant
From the water and the earth I was born
Yes, I am a creature of the rabbi,
My mind is empty, to live I need commands

Emet
As my existence come from the power of a word,
My end is tied to only one letter whose presence changes
�¢ï¿½ï¿½Truth�¢ï¿½ï¿½ into my death

Emet, Emet is the word
5. The Castaway (5:04)
The boat lays destroyed on the rocks
There is no sign of my bride
The sea now it's peaceful and quiet
Am I alone on this island?
Am I alone in this hell?

As foaming waters are chanting their songs
Sands are the clothes that I wear
As waves caress my empire made of wood,
Salt is the crown on my head

Emperor among these wastelands,
The clouds are my roof,
Time is frozen at my desert court
Stones are slowly becoming the throne of a god
On dead leaves I walk like a king

I am the castaway
These shores are now my kingdom

As foaming waters are chanting their songs
Sands are the clothes that I wear
As waves caress my empire made of wood,
Salt is the crown on my head

Here, lost in sorrow,
I start questioning 'bout myself
Am I still the same man
When morality looses all its chains?

Isn't ethics just a cape that we wear
To hide the beast that we are?
Loneliness is like a mirror to us,
It reveals nature of all mankind

I cannot remember my real name,
The past fades away,
And sometimes I stare at the far skyline
Of water and fire, but I don't know why
It's too late, I've found the real me
The castaway
6. Scorn (4:19)
Brother on the bloodfields, father of all wars
I cross the heart of every human being
Don't trust if they are weeping,
The enemies are wolves among the sheep
Empathy it's a lie

And my face you'll see at the end of every weapon
Steal another life, the scorn you must embrace
And my call you'll hear while searching deep inside where
Breeds the will to kill the scorn, the scorn you must embrace
The scorn you shall not fear

Blood is running faster, pumping all the adrenaline
There's no time to think before the final rush

The leaders are now screaming the commands,
Honour, valour, and obedience blind your mind
And choose your faith... Now take my hand

Soon this blood red ground you'll walk
Can't you hear? It's the call of the battle,
In the name of scorn you'll fight
So trust your fury, I will justify your sins

When the day it's over, thousand bodies lie,
The victory is tasting not so sweet
Just call me primal instinct or call me the way you like the most
Since I belong to yourself

And my face you'll see at the end of every weapon
Steal another life, the scorn you must embrace
And my call you'll hear, while searching deep inside where
Breeds the will to kill, the scorn, the scorn you must embrace
The scorn you must embrace
7. And The Wind Shall Scream My Name (4:43)
Ithaca is hidden far,
Beyond the horizon eternity awaits

I feel burning desire
To go where no man ha gone before
This is the curse upon me
A madness whose name is love for knowledge

�¢ï¿½ï¿½Volta la nostra poppa al mattino
dei remi facem ali al folle volo�¢ï¿½ï¿½

Raging waters are shaking the ship
And the sailors are too old
Wrinkled are the hands holding the oars,
They surrender yo punishment divine

Sail for one last time

�¢ï¿½ï¿½Della nova terra un turbo nacque
E percorse del legno il primo canto
Tre volte il f���¨ girar con tutte l'acque
Alla quarta levar la poppa in suso
E la prora ire in gi���¹, com'altrui piacque
Infin che'l mar fu sopra noi richiuso�¢ï¿½ï¿½

... And the wind shall scream my name
Forever in time
the memories will live on
... And the wind shall scream my name

As water steals my words left unspoken
I see my friends going down
In the afterlife maybe I will find some new shores
Hercules columns
Their silhouette shall seal my cold grave
The sea, my only lover,
Will tell the world Ulysses' story

Sail for one last time
8. Dimension: Hate (4:49)
These painful days now left behind engraved our souls,
Frustration and anger paved the path to our rebirth
Never forgive, never forget, again we rise
As you can see, betrayals, once again we're standing tall

Among the ruins fire burns, stronger than fate
When sorrow ends, it comes the time to face our weakness
Let the doors open wide to the
Dimension: Hate
Erase the past
The scum will face its doom
The scum will laid to rest
Drowned in blood

Embers below the ashes can burn the toughest skin
So beware, you liars, vengeance is a hidden blade
Catartica �¢ï¿½ï¿½ all the ideals fall
Catartica �¢ï¿½ï¿½ in the end, mercy lies buried in dust

My soul hides a song of melancholy, a tune from the times
When the gold at the end of the rainbow was kept just a whisper away

Collect the suffering and channel it inside
A new light will crawl through the night and shine brighter than sun

Hypocrisy infects this earth like pestilence
The darkest sin of mankind emptiness of mind,
Is turning humans into cold machines
And like machines of iron, they will leave nothing behind

Among the ruins fire burns, stronger than fate
When sorrow ends, will come the time to face our weakness
Let the rage led us to the
Dimension: Hate
Erase the past
The scum will face its doom
The scum will laid to rest
Drowned in blood
9. Stormlord (6:32)
When the light vanishes behind the clouds
We raise in sign of victory our weapons to the sky
As he comes the heavens are trembling

Under the mark of glory he was baptized in blood
From the darkness of the night skies
The Stormlord will ride, ride again

We kneel before you, bringer of fear and pain
Lord of the rain and lightning, hallowed be thy name

Raised by fire and thunder, immortal he became
From the darkness of the night skies
The Stormlord will ride, ride again

And when the battle is raging his fist will lead
All of us to the sacrifice
On this day, we will fight 'till death

Soldier we are glorybound, the storm is on our side
Resound the horns louder, Stormlord will be our guide

Burying in dust all the enemies' corpses, grass is bloodlike red
Some cowards try to run away, but noone must survive
All the omens tell our victory, no mercy
And the hostile steel we shall not fear,
We head for a doom of triumph
