Battle of Actium Lyrics

9. Battle of Actium (10:21)
PT .1: SET SAIL TO DESTINY (INSTRUMENTAL)

PT .2: ON THE EVE OF BATTLE

Before the dawn,
Far across the sea,
The story of Actium begins.

I await my redemption,
Extend me your helping hand.
Bring me salvation,
Escort me to the shores of ancient (lands).

Calling...
I'm calling you,
Try, to ease my pain!

Erase the sins I've made,
Oh gods give me mercy.
Help me find my peace,
A chance to set those spirits (free).

Wake me up from this horrible dream!

A journey of my life, a moment lost in time.
My final act, betrayal, what have I done?!
Escort the souls up to the heaven's gate,
Drain my blood and let me die in shame.

A journey of my life, a moment lost in time.
My final act, betrayal, what have I done?!
I stand before you, but cannot explain,
It is my weakness that conducts my fears.

A journey of my life, a moment lost in time.
My final act, betrayal, what have I done?!

Escort the souls up to the heaven's gate,
Drain my blood and let me die in shame.
Die in shame,
Die in shame.

PT.3: TO ARMS (INSTRUMENTAL)

PT.4: THE FINAL ENGAGEMENT

A new dawn comes, I am reborn.
A crest of life, a new beginning.
I'll close my eyes,
And dream away
I fear the dark at night

Take me there, where I belong
Open my eyes and make me strong.

I will not stop, until the day
That I'll be taken from this life.
It is the end,
They've died in vain
How can I accept this pain?

Take me there, where I belong
Open my eyes and make me strong
My final wish, before I die
Is to see that they have reached the sky.

I hear the thunder
In the sky
Let the world just pass me by

(CHORUS)

PT.5: FALLEN (INSTRUMENTAL)
