The Fall Of Iliam Lyrics

4. The Fall Of Iliam (14:47)
Comes the thunder – To Iliam’s shore
Dreams of plunder – The Grecian hordes
Menelaus – Brings forth his rage
Upon Paris – And the Trojan race

[chorus]
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

Comes the lightning – The ten year war
Heroes fighting – By the score
Thrice round Troy’s walls – Achilles drew
The corpse of Hector – Whom in fight he slew

[chorus 1]
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

Comes the fire – Out of the steed
Minerva’s nightmare – Of greek deceit
Priam’s chambers – With blood are splashed
Trojan towers – Are turned to ash

[chorus 1]
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

[chorus 2]
Stealth and destruction have come to Troy’s walls
Unto Aeneas Hector’s ghost doth call
Save whom you can and make way to the sea
Trust in the fates you are Rome’s destiny

Troy’s last fleet sails – Italia bound
Aegean storms gale – Ships run aground
Tempest blow them – Across the Main
To a new friend – The great Carthage

[chorus 2]
Stealth and destruction have come to Troy’s walls
Unto Aeneas Hector’s ghost doth call
Save whom you can and make way to the sea
Trust in the fates you are Rome’s destiny

Ships of Iliam – Again set sail
Unto Italia – Trojans prevail
Venus’ son – Fulfills his fate
Forefather of – The Roman race

[chorus 2]
Stealth and destruction have come to Troy’s walls
Unto Aeneas Hector’s ghost doth call
Save whom you can and make way to the sea
Trust in the fates you are Rome’s destiny
