Quis est homo, qui non in melius Tigris and Euphrates Witness the royal flames The enemy of the cross has smashed the gates Blood drops flowing from our swords We marched as a savage horde We died and died until we planted our flag War drums have sealed the fate Of thousand condemned disciples We shall defend the land aginst the saracens Blood drops flowing from their swords They marched as a savage horde They died and died until they planted their flag The lion walking in the heaven's door Waking all the ancient sons of the fallen ones Defying the ruthless tyrants of the sun Elder protectors have kneeled before his majesty again Jerusalem under siege Entering Damascus gate
Crown of thorns Extents to the northernmost reaches Burdened by the weight of the Persian gold Follow the path Of the One that slayed the titan Ascend to the throne of Olympus Paropamisadae Prometheus in chains Paropamisadae The limits of a mortal god Now promised The road to the end of the world Led an army to the verge of starvation Pride and pain The emperor's fortunes changed Deep in the sparkling snows of India Now I terribly dread the son of Peleus Achilles! Warrior! Why do you chase me in the speed of your feet? Gaea! Terra! Oh primordial beings This land is one of giants Where does it end?
Sun Shield 05:48
Lost is the Divine Lady Lost is the Lord When times of oblivion Are drowning our path into the unknown Cosmic tree of life on fire The ladders to the sky are burning in our hands I was sent to save our ancient kingdom And I will be the seeder of our lands barren wastes Nagas! Reptilians! Behold! The watery shield of hate will crush your bones The sky will fall and the shadows will rise Bacab will bless my legions for their sacrifice Heavenly Load The Nine Skies of the Sun The Earthly Load The Righteous Dynastic Lords Come forth! Oh man! With you misery Chaos and death as the Ceiba Tree is burning Mighty Skybearers! On your throne of stars Witness the rise of the city of Great Waters As the next season of corn replaces the old A Mask of life is crafted in the lord's wake Jade ornaments are bestowed upon red stained bones A sprouting tree reborn as the Maize God The reconciliation of circle and square The cube and sphere awoken as a divine guidance Terrestrial Tree of Life, cyclical process Through Nine sacred layers of telestial space
Deep in a long forgotten land Away from desire and sight In a garden of eternal bloom Forever in silence Once was briefly seen In the rays of a paling gleam The Enchantress of the wild The Mistress of wonders Bringer of war and despair Designed as a mortal, ensnared Could your blinded eyes see The light of a diamond I will drown in the fountain of youth Smothered by the forbidden fruit Wake me from life Take me to heaven I belong in the remains Deep in the mountains In the land of the rising, blazing sun
Riding on the edge of Babylon Fighting to death as we pray the sun Living for the one who taught us all The essence of justice and law Darius! Atossa! Glorious Achaemenidians Symbiosis of royal blood, infused life into a child Who was born with the mark of annihilation Whose destiny is molding with the fall of Babylon EA ! Enlil! Cosmic Fusion incarnated Your anger has been defied under Marduk's legacy A god amongst all men, a lion among lambs A sacrilege to embrace his greatness رستم بنقش موجود قبري الشعوب كل غزوي و هيمنتي ذكرى شنيع إله نصف إنسان نصف ستعبرالعصور ملك حكاية النزيه خشایارشا جيش العبيد قلوب في الرعب نشر الأموات و الأحياء على سينتصر التاريخ في منقوش شموخهم People of Babylon! Hear my voice! Embrace your new god! Or perish in Jahanam! Ahasuerus, father of Media The end of a virgin innocence Defying the guidance of Aesma Daeva Your demise is of a moral essence
Colossus 04:15
Royal figure crafted Dynasty that left its mark Throughout history of Men and Gods Teshub! Rise out of your grave Worshipers of rain and thunder Tarhunt! Ruler of skies Maker of the seven wonders I am eternal and bound to no loss I am the everlasting splendor Builder of mighty wonders Blazing coal through my evil eyes To testify for my lies Marids! Dwellers of night Anger of Hattian gods Ifrits! Wielding the fires Dervishes to the lords of light On that night I will Strike down the first born sons And I shall bring down my wrath I am the Lord!
والغبار الدم النار و اللهب الحرة الأمازيغ أرض على Do you see? She who rises from the ashes Like a virgin of paradise She who speaks with a thousand voices With a burning and crying heart I give you a history In the hands of my children The night falls on Numidia
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
Zadyin Arga 06:42
Here in my ocean of sorrow I bleed of this emptyness, this neverending cold I hear you scream from the bursting sun I feel your desperate, everlasting moan In the eyes of Tengri Reveal me the essence of souls Bring me oracular prophecy I've found my path to everywhere I've casted my mind ever since from within I will decimate the written steps of my destiny The evil in my mind spread me away From darkness to light From my lands down to the sky From my earthly empire I was born of Iron Forging my name Blood clot twisitng my fist Omen of domination Drowning in this ocean of sorrow And freezing of this neverending cold The eternal blue sky has set aside the world A cloud of dust is veiling the lights Is there nothing to wind up the tide? As the days are turned to ashes Like a river of time Heaven fading as I walk into nameless places Led astray by a gentle breeze Spreading me away From darkness to light From my lands down to the sky The shaman that carried the saddle And rode to the edge of the world Has lit up a radiant fire To heighten the sullen gods The shaman that carried the saddle And rode to the edge of the world Has joint his lifelong wisdom With the holy spirit of Dayisun To erase the past of men
