Rome Lyrics

6. Rome (11:02)
Rome – Italia’s shining light
Rome – Empire of power and might
Rome – From Egypt to northern Gaul
Rome – Conquerors of all they saw

[chorus]
The fire of Mars have burned
Temples raised to Jupiter
The Ides of March have turned
The course of history

Rome – Feared and honored state
Rome – Product of Trojan fate
Rome – Hear the trumpets call
Rome – Glorious unto the fall

[chorus]
The fire of Mars have burned
Temples raised to Jupiter
The Ides of March have turned
The course of history

Harken the tale of Aeneas – Last hero of Iliam
Mortal born son of Venus – Destined to Latium
Prophecy’s promise of saving – The last of the Trojan line
Spoiler of ethnic cleansing – Who fathered the Roman Empire

For all of time – Forget not the Trojan line
Imperious rise – The birth of Roman fire
Unto the sky – We raise our swords this night
Until we die – We praise the gods on high

Through bardic rhymes – The ancient tales still survive
Inside my mind – The eagles banners still fly
On Neptun’s tide – Ghost ships sail on through the night
Unto the fight – For Jupiter the legions ride

Troy’s holocaust – Vision Cassandra saw
Aeneas brought – Rebirth from what was lost
The legions fought – For Rome and ancient gods
The tale is taught – Know ye now more or not
