stand before the gates and watch metropolis
empires come and go we live forever
and eternity is in your hidden eyes
take my broken wings teach me to fly again

I stand alone
we stand alone

down the empty streets head for the seven hills
vestal virgins dance we steal the fire
battered columns stand as silent monuments
deep inside their dreams I see your memories

I stand alone…

we share the last champagne and watch necropolis
still and so let's leave her to her silent walks
the sun of Rome is set and our day is gone
a kiss a taste of red from your open lips

I stand alone…

    My InterpretationI think this song may be about Immortality. Maybe even Vampirism. Watching kingdoms rise and fall, come and go while still living on. Living forever. Watching metropolis (large thriving city) turn into Necropolis (a city of the dead).

    Song MeaningI agree with the interpretation. It is about immortality, and from the point of view of a vampire or a Fallen Angel. This part specially makes me think about that 2nd possibility: "take my broken wings teach me to fly again". It's one of my fave songs all time.
