Praetor of Mercury Lyrics

8. Praetor of Mercury (4:46)
Mercury!
Red lights eclipse the sun
To Rome!
Alesia!
Aventinus!
Called by the messenger of gods

A wind of plague is blowing
The stench of mass extinction
The raise of a Red flag augurs
Upsurging rivers of blood
Surrendered by starvation
They marched there before dawn
The spoils of war delivered
Unworthy lives of men

This is an era of warfare
The absolution demise
Leaders of the world sacrifying their men
With fear and craven guiding their way

The throne is deified
The Law becomes the faith
Power is given to the hand of the divine
Butchering the savages, slaughtering the innocents
Praetor of the void is negating their lives

Deities taking abode in new sanctuaries
Ritual of summoning away divinities
The idols are hammered, broken
Sacrilegious scorn of the enemy shrines

Fortified settlements
Erected to the sky
Hostages beheaded
Their limbs are fed to the hounds
Surrendered by starvation
They marched there before dawn
The spoils of war delivered
Unworthy lives of men
