1. Charon (5:48)
Have you ever taken a trip
Across the river Styx?
Where Charon is the boatman
Who will take you across
For two silver coins
He'll row you to Hades
He guides the fallen ones
The warriors who died

When the battle is nigh you must fight to survive
It's what you've been training for all of your life
Your blade faintly glows by the moon's pallid light
And the blood of your foes paints the skies red tonight

With a cry that chills bone, your sword finds its mark
You look back to find more dangers in the dark
“To live by the sword, is to die by the sword”
With a stab in the chest, you'll be gone from this world

Now, when everything grows cold
You remember what you were told
On the riverside you wait
Until the boatman can be paid

And when the air is still
You feel the deathly chill
Beyond the distant gates
Your resting place awaits

And when it all goes black
There is no coming back
The ending of your tale
When Charon's boat sets sail

He rows the boat to the other side
Take the trip to your afterlife
Your final journey where Hades exists
Across the river called the Styx

A new day is here, let the battle resume
Another legion of men who will meet their doom
All the souls of the fallen the boatman shall guide
The shores of the Styx will be crowded tonight

He rows the boat to the other side
Take the trip to your afterlife
Your final journey, where Hades exists
Across the river called the Styx.
2. (The Story Of) Talos (6:16)
A brave man, his soldiers stand
Stand fast on the battlefield, never bow and never yield

Blood flows, the rivers grow
Scarlet as his brothers fall, he pledges to avenge them all

Cast the die, let fate decide
Who will live to fight another day, the sounds of battle fade away

On his knees an oath was sworn, never to bow down again
As he leads his men to death, their blood, his crimson cloak

A hero died, on this fateful day
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!
A tyrant slain, an oath fulfilled
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!

Against all odds, by the ancient Gods
He lunges forth with all his might, as his nemesis draws into sight

With his sword clutched in his hand, he prepares his sacrifice
Now his oath has been fulfilled, as he looks the tyrant in the eye

A hero died, on this fateful day
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!
A tyrant slain, an oath fulfilled
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!

When the tyrant finally falls, we will lament our fallen king
The legend tells us of their deeds, the great Talos and his men.

A hero died, on this fateful day
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!
A tyrant slain, an oath fulfilled
Now he can rest. Talos! Hail!
3. Solar Signs (4:03)
Rise
Higher
King
Destined
Fight
Conquer
Believe
Rising above

My solar signs
Reaching me
Through the eyes
Of the fallen ones
Solar signs tell me to see it through to the end

Blood
Pain
My sword
In hand
Fear
Death
Faith
Rising again

My solar signs
Reaching me
Through the eyes
Of the fallen ones
Solar signs tell me to see it through to the end

Through unending battle, the Gods lead him on
Without fear of death, He'll follow the sun
For his people, his land and his crown he will fight
Go on forever, these solar signs his guide

Through unending battle, the Gods lead me on
Without fear of death, I follow the sun
For my people, my land and crown I will fight
I will go on forever, the solar signs, my guide.
4. Hot Gates (5:35)
In 480 B.C. 300 men stood strong
Their foes came from the sea, the battle had begun
They shot their arrows high, and blotted out the sun
The 300 knew the battle could not be won

They made their final stand, by morning they would fall
As free men they'd die by Leonidas' call
"The God - King will bleed", the Spartans could stand tall
The 300 gave their lives as freedom's final wall

Xerxes' hordes, barbarians, immortals
To enslave the whole of Greece
Xerxes' hordes, barbarians, immortals
To enslave the whole of Greece

Leonidas climbed, blessings he sought
By the Gods decree, no war be fought
But the Ephors lied, by Persians bought
Leonidas left, 300 men he brought

They took their shield, their spear and blade
And left to meet the Persian raid
The phalanx's strong, the Hot Gates' blockade
It was suicide, the plan he'd made

He threw his helmet off, his spear shot through the sky
Their legacy lives on, the day these Spartans die.
5. Behemoth (4:47)
An ancient terror roams these plains
It marks its path with but decay

The embodiment of evil
The Behemoth is its name

No master, no device
It does not know mercy
And when it's had its fill
It wanders on forever more

Hear it howl in the still of the night
See the fear in their eyes
And they pray it will leave them be
As they hear its victim's cries

Leaves but destruction in its wake, so fear
this creature, thirsting for blood, arise
A being from the depths of hell, and still
the Behemoth rages on

When the dawn breaks all is still
And the dead are laid to rest

An atrocity that plagues man
The Behemoth can't be slain

Its eyes are black as night
Its heart is made of ice
Fear incarnate
A nightmare that will never end

Hear it howl in the still of the night
See the fear in their eyes
And they pray it will leave them be
As they hear its victim's cries

Leaves but destruction in its wake, so fear
this creature, thirsting for blood, arise
A being from the depths of hell, and still
the Behemoth rages on

Hear it howl in the still of the night
See the fear in their eyes
And they pray it will leave them be
As they hear its victim's cries

Leaves but destruction in its wake, so fear
this creature, thirsting for blood, arise
A being from the depths of hell, and still
the Behemoth rages on

Leaves but destruction in its wake, so fear
this creature, thirsting for blood, arise
A being from the depths of hell, and still
the Behemoth rages on.
6. Interlude: For Glory (1:47)
7. Athena's Wrath (4:50)
Here, we stand
Defiantly, we bend nor break

And here, we stand
In Phalanx, side by side

Our hearts devoid of fear
Athena's wrath is

Here, we stand
Our shields and spears are shining bright

And here, we stand
Surrender to no one

So here, we stand
Facing off a legions worth

We fear, no man
For the Gods are on our side!

Athena's wrath
Athena's wrath

Athena, our goddess
She guides our swords
Together claim victory
Over the Persian hordes
Lay waste the invaders
Show no remorse
with the Gods behind us
An unrelenting force

Athena's wrath
Athena's wrath is

Here we stand, still side by side, wielding shield and spear
Defend, till our final breath, all that we hold dear
Our land, our birthright, the Gods will interfere
Descend, our Goddess of War, for victory we cheer

Athena's wrath is here
Athena!
