01. I, Caligvla

"On this glorious day... I declare Gaius Augustus Germanicus, Emperor of Rome!"

I, Caligvla am god made flesh, thy rope around your neck... this is the will of the gods!
I, Caligvla am master of all your fears, thy might colossal, these hands are drenched in blood!

Bow to me, you worthless swine... the sky will fall from grace
All these voices left on unheard, dead and buried in my dominion

Whisper... Whisper... whisper words of domination

I am life, I am death, your souls left to waste
I am everything you need and all the things you fear

Whisper... Whisper... whisper words of insanity

They killed my mother, they killed my father... who am I but the true face of ROME

Traitors shall be crucified, their women and children thrown from the Tarpeian rock

I thirst your blood, I want it all!!

I, Caligvla am god made flesh, thy rope around your neck... this is the will of the gods!
I, Caligvla am master of all your fears, thy might colossal, these hands are drenched in blood

Kneel... Kneel... Kneel... before for me

Kneel... Kneel... Kneel... for I am god!


02. The Tiberius Cliff (Exile To Capri)

26 A.D. exile to Capri, paranoia infects the mighty Tiberius
Assassins lurk throughout the glorious land, like Germanicus, dead by a poisoned tongue!

What is a king without a leash on his kingdom?
What is all power... without fear to feed it?

On to Capri to rule, bring forth desire of a god
Servants to please, my wilds dream....

I am Tiberius and you shall bring me your children,
You shall bring me your wives, you shall bring me everything...

My reign as a Julio Claudian, will be remembered as the greatest of them all
Statues will be erected in all corners of Rome!

"Watch closely little boots, as I bathe in their blood and crush their dignity to nothing, one day you will be the same, boy... oh what a sight it will be"

(dear Caligvla) Your father was a hero of Rome, I could not let him rise
One day you will understand and worship me as a god
My enemies will tremble, my wrath unmerciful
Aut vincere Aut mori

Caligvla!!... Rise with me... Rise, and all shall fall from the Tiberius cliff...


03. Per Oculos Aquila

Oh!
As the eagle watches the vision of worlds collide
The monuments of a thousand deaths
The snakes are slithering
Feel the warm embrace
Feel the thunder slay
Feel the power of the sun
Conquering the lands of the undone

To fly into the sky
To seek the wisdom of light
In honor of the fallen, fallen
To protect her beloved fire
To the ancestors who watch, watch
The spear pierce the enemy

For your glory
Take this blood I sacrifice
For your glory
Per oculus aquila

Oh!
As the eagle watches the vision of worlds collide
The monuments of a thousand deaths
The snakes are slithering
Feel the warm embrace
Feel the thunder slay
Feel the power of the sun
Conquering the lands of the undone

Goddess of fertility
Master of war
King of all seas
Beholder of all time
Messenger of light

Jove!
My king
My sun

For your glory
Take this blood I sacrifice
For your glory
Per oculus aquila


04. Divide Et Impera

Of your Emperor's beloved trust
None shall defy this era of Greatness
Centuries of courage, led to world conquest

Feel the winds of domination
A spectacle like you never seen before
You could only whisper this scream
You could only imagine this dream

I shall not yield (Trust)
I am a soldier of Rome (Loyalty)
You must bleed for what you believe in (Allegiance)
You must die if honor calls (In glory)

Surrender time, Surrender life
I walk the land free of all the misery you seek
My darkness will hold no prisoner
My blood is Roman and so shall I die

Feed from the wounds of time
Let the gladius strike you down
Let the fire march inside
Descend upon thee
Mars, oh god of war


05. Pollice Verso (Damnatio Ad Bestia)

As I stand here, waiting for the gods to kill
There's no turning back
There's no hope for a dying man
Killing is the only way, the only way to see another day
Fear's only for the weak, as I pledge my life for freedom

The blade rips through the flesh
The thirst of blood uncontrollable
Lions, roar into the light
The pressure from the shield is tight
Blood spills into the night
Gladiators fight to stay alive
Man vs. beast, Man vs. Man, God vs. Gods
Merciless to none, to die into the sun
Blood stains the sands of eternity

Pollice Verso
Today is a good day to die
Pollice verso
Bring me to the after life

As I stand here waiting for the gods to kill
Unmerciful to the death of me...

Wild beasts tear the limbs apart
Decapitated bodies, torn into pieces
So far away from home

Blood stains the sands of eternity

Pollice Verso
Today is a good day to die
Pollice verso
Bring me to the after life


06. Burned To Serve As Nocturnal Light

Plague... the Christian plague
Invades the empire and threatens the sun
Insults to the pagan gods
Means punishment by death
A disease that eats away, the core of existence
Persecution is the only way
To rule without decay

The gardens of Nero,
Illuminated with the flesh
Burn... Burn... Burn... Burn...
Rome burns... with the flesh...
With the blood

Gather the men, look through the streets
Under the bridges and inside their homes
Flay the resistance, impale the leaders
Bring me the fire, burn them alive!

Burn... Burn... Burn... Burn...
Rome burns... with the flesh...
With the blood


07. Teutuborg (Ambush Of Varus)

Unrest Amongst the Germanic tribes, Alliances... Cherusci and Chatti
Armenius, barbarian at heart, under Roman control
Trusted to Centurions, Trusted by Varus
Pressure from the North, Imperial Retaliation
Bring the sirens of war... of war!

Onward to Teutoburg
To liberate the northern frontier... Teutoburg

Ambush!.... Ambush!
Testudo Formate
Hold the line... Hold it!
Alas, this is what we do in life...
Centurion... Battle at will!

Defeat Armenius, the traitor of all traitors
Led legions to slaughter
Ambush into the night, deep into the forest light
Where men seek the lawless
Rome to taste revenge... 35,000 men infrantry
Burning down the Chatti
As Mattium burns, the Rhine in roman possession

Onward to Teutoburg
To liberate the northern frontier... Teutoburg

"Quintilius Varus Where are my Legions?... Give me back my Legions" - Augustus


08. Along The Appian Way

Forced to enslavement, traces of Thracian blood
Sentenced to the land of Capua... named Gladiator

Bounded by chains, a hero of slaves to rise and army bigger than dismay
The thirst of freedom, greater than the will of death, greater than the oath of mankind
Spartacus to defy the Roman way of life
Thousands of men ready to die, soldiers of Rome ready to strike... Spartacus!

"Pompey Magnus, Crassus... gather the men, I need you to crush this rebellion, one by one &
When you do, you shall crucify them along the Appian way and show the world none shall defy Rome!"

Legions Engage...

Broken & defeated (the Spartacus army)... retreat to southern Italy
Gather reinforcements, Crassus in pursuit

He will not stop to lead his rebellion
Until the day he dies for his freedom

The thirst of freedom, greater than the will of death, greater than the oath of mankind
Spartacus to defy the Roman way of life
Thousands of men ready to die, soldiers of Rome ready to strike... Spartacus!

"Come on Men, I don't have all night, there's still 4,000 to be crucified" - Crassus


09. Once Were Romans

"First Cohort... In battle formation" - Roman general

Once were Romans - Once were men who died for honor - Once were women who made imperial blood
Once was glory you could only bleed - Once were gods who walked upon the earth - Once was truth...
Once were Romans

Bind this world forever - Bind the truth forever

Barbarians at the gates of Rome - Seek to stop the impossible
Evolution of man, Civilization - Advancement into the evil

Consilio et animis - Fortes Fortuna iuavat
Veritas vos liberabit - Credite Posteri

Roma Victrix!

Consilio et animis - Fortes Fortuna iuavat
Veritas vos liberabit - Credite Posteri

Once were Romans
Once were men who died for honor - Once were women who made imperial blood - Once was glory you could
Only bleed - Once were gods who walked upon the earth - Once was truth... once were Romans

Bind this world forever - Bind the truth forever

From the foundation of Romulus.... To the conquests of Caesar...
From Augustus' triumphs... To the mighty Scipio & victories of general Agrippa

Roma Caput Mundi!
