1. The Lion, the Goat, the Serpent - Arezzo (3:30)
You're the only one who found a way
To kill the Chimera exploiting her own skills.
So your leaden spearhead
Stuck in the throat of the beast
Has melted between tongues of fire.

Prostrate suffering is this terrible beast
As it was a leaden statue
Created by renowned Etruscan artisans
Itself symbolizes this alloy
Fusion of beasts, beasts in nature.
Partly snake, that is flexible like tin,
Partly goat, that serves mankind as the lead,
And partly lion, that like fire is a symbol of strength.

It lies before thee triumphant Bellerophon,
Beautiful and powerful you raise on Pegasus' back
The golden bridle glisten on his neck and in your hands
Especially created for you!

But be careful, do not get blind by their brilliance
You may fall from the clouds one day!
You may fall from the clouds one day!
So your leaden spearhead
Stuck in the throat of the beast
Has melted between tongues of fire!

Partly snake, that is flexible like tin,
Partly goat, that serves mankind as lead,
And partly lion, that like fire is a symbol of strength.

Beautiful and powerful you raise on Pegasus' back,
The golden bridle glisten on his neck and in your hands!
The golden bridle glisten on his neck and in your hands!
It lies before thee, triumphant Bellerophon!
that is flexible like tin,
Partly goat, that serves mankind as lead,
And partly lion, that like fire is a symbol of strength!
It lies before thee triumphant Bellerophon!
2. Itinere Inferi - Cerveteri (3:38)
I introduce myself,
I'm a ghost with no name,
Hero of a book titled Necropoli
Consumed by severe weather.

Echo from the past
That still reverberates in these places.
Come, I'll lead you through this unique city
That befits a dead,
Where eternal peace reigns.
Worms and Insects feasted with my carcass
Laid down on a bed of tuff!

Please, take a pew!
You'll notice that this tombs looks more
Like houses of the living,
A comfort for my eyes.
There, after some steps,
Now you are in the dromos.

Over there, at bottom, you can see the place
Where the living often used to stay
Over there, at the end,
My corpse's deathbed now empty!

Many times I've traveled the Itinere Inferi
Accompanying my brothers
During their last journey,
Bringing ornaments and offerings,
Returning with empty plates.
But after my last journey
There was no place to return,
For my funeral procession
Our city was under attack, in the year 273!

Echo from the past
That still reverberates in these places.
Come, I'll lead you through this unique city
That befits a dead,
Where eternal peace reigns.
Worms and Insects feasted with my carcass
Laid down on a bed of tuff!
3. Reading the Flames - Vulci (3:29)
Sixth tip of the eternity crown,
Wind of change!
Above your head light of hope shines,
Divine's will flows through your body.

That night a prophecy was pronounced,
Your destiny was branded on your skin.
A sweet mouth, red lips whisper along your way.

A night the moon turned red,
But something was brightest in the estate,
A flame on the head of a child
in his bed while he was sleeping!

“Domine mi, infans ardens est!”
“Oh no! Tanaquil, ubi est?”
But his mother was worried not
She knew it was a sign,
The child will reign with the power of a blaze!

Sixth tip of the eternity crown,
Wind of change!
On your head light of hope shines,
Divine's will flows through your body.

Ave Servio Tullio,
Born slave, died as king.
You have boosted the strength of Rome
The same that will crash the blood of your blood
The end of Etruria!
You had the power to modify the river
Of goods and wheat in the coffers of the Urbe.

Ave Mastarna,
Slave and savior of Vibenna's blood,
Fluid then you used to mark
The boundaries of your empire.

Sixth tip of the eternity crown,
Wind of change!
On your head light of hope shines,
Divine's will flows through your body!
4. In Principium Tarquinii - Tarquinia (3:35)
Liver, liver on my hand
Tell them this is the end
Of their journey, of their travel
Just as their trouble.
This is the promised land,
Their feet can touch the sand.

Erected on foundations made of knowledge and soil,
Cradle of a nation with two heads linked with blood,
Which creation myth is lost in the mist of time!
First head is gone, Tirreno is his name
And the name of the sea he exceeded.

Second head is here to stay, to rule,
Tarconte, so he was called!
In his memory this city was baptized
With the name of Tarchuna.

Liver, liver on my hand
Tell them this is the end
Of their journey, of their travel
Just as their trouble.

In a field a child was found
By Tarconte who was plowing the ground,
White his hairs and full his mind
Of a knowledge Tarconte was surprised to find.
The babe said “Write down my speech!
From now on Disciplina will be taught!
You'll be the first of the priests,
In my name you'll make great feasts!”

Liver...Liver...Liver, liver...On my hand
Tell... Them... Tell, them... This is the end!

First strip of land touched by the foot
Of the folk come from the sea.
First of twelve around the Fanum to be founded.

So many battles between waves of blood,
So many fights between hills of corpses
Against her daughter...
Bastard daughter of the dynasty of the etruscan kings of Rome
Generated here, in this City of divine features.
Tarquinia! With their ships from the void of ancestral remembrances
The legendary Rasna puts their roots on this ground.
This is the promised land
Where their feet have touched the sand!

Liver...Liver...Liver, liver...On my hand
Tell them this is the end!
5. Criterion of the Groma - Roselle (4:05)
Seven are the Rome's hills
Roselle resembles her
Growing over two heights!
Breast of Semia, our mother
She protects us, She feeds us.
It's up to each his piece of ground,
Given by gods…
Through the use of a Groma.
Fixed were the edges with rituals.

According to the instruction written in the books
Artificial water furrows shining in the sunlight
They bring the lifestream to plants and men,
They bring the lifestream to plants and men!

Every limit given by gods is sacred,
Try to change it and you'll be conducted
By a Lasa in the realm of the death
Under the field instead of above it.

Under the field instead of above it!

Under the oxen's steps and the plow
Already the first buds sprout.

Similar to the Elysiam fields, but on earth
Gods' smile was pointing this city.
Not one but two party walls
Were in her defense,
Who would have thought that it would fall?

Who would have thought that it would fall?

Who would have thought that it would fall?

According to the instruction written in the books!

Similar to the Elysiam fields, but on earth
Demons' smile was pointing at this city.
Not one but two party walls
Are now the borders of a giant Necropoli
Plotted with a Groma.

The bodies laid down the sun
Now join him in spiritual form.

According to the instruction written in the books
Artificial water furrows shining in the moonlight
They bring the death stream to plants and men,
They bring the death stream to plants and men!
6. Fanum Voltumnae (2:11)
Avthleth vanec Calus
Papui nuntheri ica ilucu
Hanax utus lethamnsulu

7. Lars Porsenna - Chiusi (2:45)
My word is the law,
Trembles the empire to my every whim!
Chiusi’s Lars,
First Lucumone of Etruria.

Not unquam alias ante
Tantus terror senatum invasit,
Adeo res valid tum Clusina east
Magnumque Porsennae nomen.
Fears not only me,
Because the Roman plebs
Could readmit the ​​kings
Just to have peace.
But Rome now is unworthy
To drink again…

…From the womb of Voltumna.
I'm Porsenna, Chiusi’s Lars!

No more howls from the well!
Wolf's head and human body monster
Olta, terror of Artume!

My lightning struck him
From the sky he was punished.
I, Chiusi’s Lars
First Lucumone of Etruria.

Great heroes have failed but you overcome
The room in which,
In the golden chariot driven by 12 stallions…

…My body rests and my soul travels.
My body rests and my soul travels!

After demons, traps and pitfalls
Here's the treasure!
But alas, the legend must remain so!
So you will rest forever here with me,
‘Cause I am Chiusi’s Lars!

In the pit I banish you!
8. Perdidit Veii - Veio (3:15)
Pace alibi parta Romani
Veiique in armis
Erant tanta ira odioque
Ut uictis finem adesse appareret.

In unum omnium curae uersae sunt
Quod lacus in Albano nemore
In altitudinem insolitam creuit.

Sic igitur libris fatalibus,
Sic Disciplina Etrusca
Ut aqua Albana abundasset,
Tum si eam Romanus rite
Emisisset uictoriam de Veientibus dari;
Antequam id fiat deos
Moenia Veientium deserturos non esse.

Iamque Romani desperata
Ope humana fata
Et deos spectabant,
Cum legati ab Delphis uenerunt,
Sortem oraculi adferentes
Congruentem responso captiui uatis.
Superante multitudine ab omnibus
Locis urbem adgreditur.

Immolante rege Veientium
Uocem haruspicis,
Dicentis qui eius hostiae exta prosecuisset,
Ei uictoriam dari,
Exauditam in cuniculo
Mouisse Romanos milites
Ut adaperto cuniculo exta raperent
Et ad dictatorem ferrent.

In unum omnium curae uersae sunt
Quod lacus in Albano nemore
In altitudinem insolitam creuit.

In unum omnium curae uersae sunt
Quod lacus in Albano nemore
In altitudinem insolitam creuit!
9. Cyclopean Walls - Vetulonia (1:45)
Instrumental
10. War of Supremacy - Perugia (3:47)
“Perugia was one of the last cities
To yield to the pressure of Rome,
But in the end fell.”

Daughter of two fathers,
Umbrians and Etruscans,
Her heart went to the latter.
Joined the twelve because of its growth.
Defended by massive walls,
Soon the eagle eye will be placed on her.

For 30 years the wall
Would have still detained
Without shaking the sun
In the hill dedicated to him.

In 295 BC
Peace has been broken,
It had not yet reached maturity,
Too dangerous was the enemy!

Samnites, Etruscans, Umbrians and Gauls,
Joined together against Rome
In a historic battle
That shooks mountains and forests.

“The place was the Sentino’s valley,
From this place will be called the Battle Of The Nations.
The plan was simple, to distract by the front, to attack from behind.
But the eagle sees far and knows how to spy his prey,
An attack on Chiusi would force the Etruscans
To move and to weaken the alliance.”

So strong was the Roman army
Even with the dislocated troops.
No territory fell under the supremacy of Rome,
The eagle's goal was to make it clear
That she almost was the greatest one.
That she almost was the greatest one.
11. Vessels of Rasna - Populonia (4:44)
Soldier:
“Oh Nethuns, foam of the waves,
Point toward which all currents converge!
We invoke you, we need your help!”

Soldier:
“I know Fufluna is not so far
The rowers, they are weary!
The wind these days does not sing!
The anchor, heritage of my people
Rests in the depths of the sea!”

Nethuns:
“What's doing a ship in my kingdom?
Who dares disturb me?
Speak human, but be fast
Like the sea I’m always agoing.”

Nethuns:
“Famous are the vessels of Rasna
You don’t need to summon a god!
We taught you how to follow the stars
Maybe you have denied the Discipline?
In this case you deserve only death!
Only death!”

Nethuns: “Only death!”

Soldier:
“In the heat of victory
Trying to avoid the wrecks
We have gone too far.”

Crew:
…We have gone too far...

Soldier:
“The mast, which only stands on our heads
It holds barely!”

Soldier:
“The last ramming with our metal beak
Shook the bridge made it tilt.
An arrow pierced our navigator
The only one expert in celestial maps!”
Nethuns:
“If so I will help,
I am sending a current
in the direction you longed!
But in my name I want a temple
When you return
And votive offerings always fresh!”

Soldier:
“Glory to you oh sea breeze
This ship would be our tomb
The wood our bed,
The sea our mound
Without your help!”

Nethuns:
“This and more can the gods
Once already helped your people find a port
Where to land and take root.
Radiant is the future
Of those who owns your blood!”
Soldier: “Our blood!”
Nethuns: “Your blood!”
Soldier: “Our blood!”
12. The Path to Our Twilight - Volterra (4:10)
Eleven had fallen, and now twelfth hour begins.
7000 meters of rocks
Placed to defend the city
Mark now, in the darkest period,
The border between Rome
And the free Etruscans.
These walls consist of large stones,
Nine Roman feet smaller,
The greater twelve units.
All entirely composed of rock
Without embankment,
Amazing human work
To celebrate the divine.

Have you ever walked in absence of light?
Have you ever seen an horizon of pure darkness,
Where shadows mingling with the shadows,
Empty creatures fill the void of nothingness,
And not even the purest blade
Mentions the slightest sign of glitter?
So was the landscape
The augurs’ eye could see over the walls…

…From the top of the hill,
Once all the other lights
in the sky of Etruria went out.

Peace was asked to practice,
But it was just a way
To surrender to the darkness,
When the last sacred hill fell.

“The gods have left, the people of the sea.”
Thuchulca, so ruthless,
Had fun seeing them suffer.
Etruria will no longer exist
Except in our hearts.
Swallowed, now she is in the stomach
Of the lustful, greedy Rome.
It is corroded by stomach acid,
Not even the mighty walls can resist.
