01. Prologue

"When I reminisce about all those years
I see many things
Life and death strung together
Like the mountains and valleys
In which we lived
There was wealth and opulence
But also tribulation and loss
There was laughter and song
And there was also tears
But even more than tears
Blood was shed
And so many were left
To their unadorned graves
Unburied
But to us death was but another journey
And close by the darkness
Through which we strode
There was also light
The light of life and immortality
And after all
When I reminisce about those years
I mostly remember our songs
We sang
As if to drown out the sound
Of clashing swords
As if the battle cries fell silent
Because war had lost its meaning"


02. Helvetios

Yeah, yeah-yeah

Bodiacos
Sunartiu
Segos brigos
Anauos

From Antumnos the life-giving winds
Fanned the flames into a blaze
The Awen of the mighty

By the force of Succellus sledge
By every impact of Ogmios club
With Bricta's invincible epiphany

A tribe arose
A tribe broke forth

'Cause we're born free
'Cause we're born wild
'Cause we are indomitable and bold
'Cause we are fire
'Cause we are wave
'Cause we are rock
We are one, we are Helvetios

The ears tethered to the divine tongue
Following the ancient wise
As laughter fills Antumnos

Drinking from the cup of life
The well that's never running dry
We wandered into the light of day

Again Taranis
Enthean wheel revolved
From Antumnos life was upheaved

By the force of Succellus sledge
By every impact of Ogmios club
With Bricta's invincible epiphany

A tribe arose
A tribe broke forth

A tribe, Helvetios
A tribe

'Cause we're born free
'Cause we're born wild
'Cause we are indomitable and bold
'Cause we are fire
'Cause we are wave
'Cause we are rock
We are one, we are Helvetios

'Cause we're born free
'Cause we're born wild
'Cause we are indomitable and bold
'Cause we are brave
'Cause we are strong
'Cause we are tribe
We are one, we are Helvetios


03. Luxtos

At the rise of a new dawn
Rose the children of the sun
To inhabit a kingdom
Augustly crowned in rock mass vast

All lakes are sanowaries
Live covent nemetors
All forests are hallowed
Blest groves of an invictus tribe

A kingly tribe sublime
Arose in its golden time
In a prosperous era
The age of primodrial reign

A horde of untameables
Invincible armada
A dashing bold host
Of venturous fearnaughts

04. Home

In these vigilant times
I daydream, an innocuous crime
My motionless stance
In my mind, I wander the land
A bleak, a dismal trance

Constrained, unsafe
Left in shame
And now I can see
My town is painted red
Here forever I'll be
Where once my tears were shed

On that day, in our place
I recall the smell of the rain
And I'd protect you from them
If you want me to take
Take you there again

Good night my love
Let me watch you sleep
From here or above
Words like these
Won't leave this place
Be haunted by our trace
The trace of our home

The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we're still free
(We're still free)

I'm waiting for
The clouds to part, all in vain
Nature forsaken
Once admired by us all
Does it know we're scared?

To move, scared to wake
Scared just to be who we were
What matters is just you and me
And the path that leads us home

The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we are still free (free)

Whoa, encircled by friends
The pressure deepens
Dazed by illusions
My reason weakens
But I won't let you fall into deep forlornness

I won't let you ponder the why in distress
A mechanical smile
As I lift my face towards the sun
And return to denial

I weep as I kiss the ground
The trees that I'll soon miss
The songs we sang will ring out
The memories will resound

Home
The home they want call their own
But for the air that I breathe
The dreams and divine
The memories I'll bring to
A place far from home
The home they want to call province of Rome
I'm trapped without guards
Within a state I can't grasp
But we're still free (free)


05. Santonian Shores

(It has been decided)
(We took forth on this journey)

We packed the wagons
A thing arranged, there is no turning back
The time has come
All to soon, a stab allthrough m'heart

The afterglow
Glimmered on the roof of our homestead
We rode the nightfall at hand and
Believe set out into the dark

In this night the fires roared
As fields were set ablaze
It rained ash from the sky
In a flaring hiss at night

Fromward the land we knew
Off to far and distant shores
A safe haven
Off to these Santonian shores

At the set of the sun
As mist billowed over the land
We got under way
Wandering towards our hopes

I rode awhile and looked back
Gazed into the sea of flames
Laying waste what we called home
I won't see this place again

A cortege as far as the eye can see
A vast migrant parade
The glow of a distant dream
The awakening came nigh

Under a starlit sky
Dreams within our hearts
Step by step we marched
Away into the night

Oh, fromward the land we knew
Off to far and distant shores
A safe haven
Off to these Santonian shores


06. Scorched Earth

Nu noxs ponc ro-duaxse
Noxs uedaca atro-brogi
Dera laucint in nemisi
Niula noxtos cruo-samali
Roudi loucint are tanisa belia
Roudi loucint are tanisa belia

Nu tegisa ne seiu bisionti
Magisa ansra nu loscenti
Noxt nu uer ni ateddi
Baregon nouion duaxsati
Baregon nouion duaxsati

Dunon eddi aidulegos
Treba ansra nu eddi onnas
Druco-critus me gabici
Rac senoxs auagomos
Aue, aue, inte noxtin
Aue, aue, inte noxtin


07. Meet The Enemy

There at these omnious shores of river Saône
There at these shores the die has been cast
Valor and honor were stripped off their meaning
We will not know innocence again

Whoa

At somber nightfall the defenseless were bestially run down
Saône stained with Helvetic blood
You will not shake hands with arrant beliers
You'd rather die than turn into minions

Freedom was our highest good
We ventured our lives

Meet the liar
This dead black night
Our destiny revealed
Meet the enemy
It will never be the same

At these portentous shores of, of river Saône
There at these shores the die has been cast
We saw the true face of the Roman ravener
The Gorgoneion on the cuirass appeared

It was like playing Ludus Latrunculorum
Pieces were made of flesh and of blood
Valor and honor bereft of their meaning
The blood on your hands will forever stay

Freedom was our highest good
We ventured our lives

Meet the liar
This dead black night
Our destiny revealed
Meet the enemy
It will never be the same

It's not us to go under the yoke
Of that fact the Roman people are witness
We will not bow

Meet the liar
Meet the enemy
Meet the liar
Meet the enemy


08. Neverland

(Behold, behold, behold, behold)
Behold this proud crestfallen parade
Dead bodies towered up like this dividing rampart
The hopes of yesterday forgotten and interred
Burnt to the ground

Lacerate
My Neverland belauded
My Otherworld elapsed
My silver lining

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

Behold this egregious mockery
We refused to bow down
Our own goddamn blood was the price we had to pay
Santones land we never got to see

Lacerate
My Neverland bore down

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

Lacerate
My Neverland belauded
My Otherworld elapsed
My hopes were dead

Another false dawn collapsed
A glimpse of our safe home (home)
Perished in Bibracte
Another hope dearly payed
When we all were betrayed (betrayed)
The end to our exodus

When the fiends come marching in
When the fiends come marching in


09. A Rose For Epona

Do you feel the thorns?
Do you see the tears?
Do you see the blood
Shed in this fell war?
Have you forsaken us?
Have you forgotten our
Faithful men calling your name?

While I stand before you
While we perish
While I lay down a crimson rose
While holding hands are forced apart
While hopes bog like condemned men

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

(Falling on me)

In your nemeton
These grey stone walls
Are cold and silent
As the fallen
Mother gone deaf
Mistress of shattered hopes
And forever broken dreams

Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

Sacrifice
(Epo, epo, why hast thou forsaken me?)
Together we go unsung
Sere
(Into thy hand I commend my spirit)
Together we go down with our people

Were you there?
Were you there?

The sky is falling on me
As your hand's turning old and weak
I'm giving myself up to thee
A futile sacrifice gone sere

(Falling on me)


10. Havoc

Whoa

(I wonder)
What it's like to attack at night
Mow down the defenseless
Invasions and raids just called
Fucking punitive expeditions, oh

(Whoa)

Like a wildfire devastation spreads
Across the Gallia
From Helvetia to Eburonia
The ravener's insatiate

(Havoc)
To think of yesterday
(Ruin)
A mass illusion
How could it come this far?

Narbonensis was not enough
The empire needed more
From Aremonica to Carnutia
Plagued and war-ridden land

Wars inflicted on free Gallia (Gallia)
An organized downfall (an organized downfall)
A black cloud of imperial (imperial)
Rapancity unleashed (whoa)

(Havoc)
To think of yesterday
(Ruin)
Our dormant minds
Were not prepared for this

Imperial needs are met
At bloody cost of free tribes
Invasion, raid, and war atrocity
In the name of S.P.Q.R., ah

(Havoc)
To think of yesterday
(Ruin)
A mass illusion
How could it come this far?

(Hey)


11. The Uprising

Our estates are under fire
Our villers fall prey to pillage
How can we stay on the sideline
How long will we take this lying down?

Refuse to quell the anger
Time has come to take up arms again
The last call to rise up

Bestir
This is the flash of our last hope
Will you ally with us?
Wake up
Open your eyes
Reach out
And seize the golden venture

We've lost ourselves in strife
While the raptor unopposedly
Clatus at Gallia's free lands

We have to call a halt of this
Unite the tribes and rise
Take a look around yourself
And see this time is ours

The last call to rise up
(Rise up, rise up, rise up)

"Chieftains
The eagles empire stretched out its talons for our lands
Bribing us, threatening us
Today we are gathered here, all my countrymen
And still some of you hesitate
You are so solicitous about your state in the Roman empire
And while you fight among yourselves for Rome's favor
An even greater vision is crying out to be seen
A country of our own
A free Gaul
Let us stand against the eagle
Unite the tribes"

Whoa

Our lands are under fire
Our villers fall prey to pillage
How can we stay on the sideline
How long will we take this lying down?

It is time to join forces
Let the eagles beak burst on our shields
Unite, this is Gallia uprising

Bestir
This is the flash of our last hope
Will you ally with us?
Wake up
Open your eyes
Reach out
And seize the golden venture

Bestir
This is the flash of our last hope
Will you ally with us?
Wake up
Open your eyes
Reach out
And seize the golden venture


12. Hope

13. The Siege

Whoa

Scorched earth we left
A barren land of ash
Our fatherland laid waste
Be the void our fucking monument

At a laden dawn
At this omnous morn

Pila loomed on the horizon
Talons of the wolverine
Exanimate legions formed
At the very gates of Avaricum

Believed invulnerable
This Gallic wall
But straight out of nowhere
Before our eyes this goddamn bane arose

Thus Avaricum burns
Under a dead sky
Avaricum drowns
In blood and demise
And demise

Siege towers emerged
Protruding from the ground
Standing out against the threatening sky
As if to mock all valiantness

Face to face
With an eye-levelled enemy
Serried Roman ranks
Embattled upon our hold

????

Yeah
Whoa

Cut off and trapped inside
As the carnage was at hand
As the creak of the winches extolled our doom
The slaughter befell Avaricum

Death siffered the Oppidum
Left to pillage sack and rape
Avaricum, the brave
Became Avaricum, the grave

Thus Avaricum burns
Under a dead sky
Avaricum drowns
In blood and demise
And demise


14. Alesia

The grass was as green
As it always was
That sinister day
The blackbird sang their songs
As they always did
That black-letter day

We passed the great gate
For the very last time
I did not look back
I knew we'd stay

I knew they would not let us go
Leave the death strip
I saw the gleam in their eyes
Of fear and enslavement
The crushing weight

Beloveth ground
Take me home

Alesia, Alisanos
Wake me when I'm gone
Ianotouta, eternity
Proclaim our barren sacrifice

On that ground we cherished life
We embraced death
As the children's cries trailed off
Sob yielded deathly (hush)

Alesia, Alisanos
Wake me when I'm gone
Ianotouta, eternity
Proclaim our barren sacrifice

Ooh

The grass was as green
As it always was
That sinister day
As we walked the alleys
Like thousand times before
I knew we'd stay

Alesia, Alisanos
Wake me when I'm gone
Ianotouta, eternity
Proclaim our barren sacrifice

(Outside Alesia)
(We offered a living sacrifice)
(Outside the doors of Alesia)
(Where our tears run dry)


15. Tullianum

"And so it all ends
With just a noose
Fly raven, fly"


16. Uxellodunon

Now this is the final resistance

In desperate hope
With tear-dimmed eyes
With wrath-torn minds
We took up arms one more time

Uxellodunon
The last stand
The freedom manifesto

We will never forget
The things we've seen
The deaths we died
The tears we cried
We will never regret
We defied
We will raise
Our arm's stubs in pride
We will never perish

This was the final resistance
This was the final revolt

Our cut off hands
Proclaimed grandeur
Land can be taken
But dignity's impregnable

Uxellodunon
Fortress of free men
Shining beacon of indomitability

Bearing witness of freedom
Bearing witness of our names

'Cause we will never forget
The things we've seen
The deaths we died
The tears we cried
We will never regret
We defied
We will raise
Our arm's stubs in pride
We will never perish

(Immi uiros rios toutias rii)

Out from the ashes
Out from the graves
The offspring of Antumnos
Will arise to life again

Uxellodunon
The last stand
The freedom manifesto

We will never forget
The things we've seen
The deaths we died
The tears we cried
We will never regret
We defied
We will raise
Our arm's stubs in pride
We will never perish


17. Epilogue

"When I reminisce about all those years of tribulation
I mostly remember our songs
We died and our blood seeped away on the battlefields
But our songs survived
Together with those of us that returned
And as they too will die one day
Our songs will live on
And will be sung by our children
And by our children's children
This is how we will be remembered
This is who we were
Helvetios"
