first cohort of the ninth storms on
gone for three thousand nights and dawns
paving new roads Rome marches on
past the brunettes and the blondes
never in war have we once withdrawn
with no battles lost all is won
babe, nothing ever goes wrong
we're the empire's bloody tampon

shun the Gorgon sight of aristocratic eyes
baby don't you know that the aristocracy lies?

fight! flight! now! tonight! now! decide!

blood's dried and buried behind integers and strings
blood by black waters flows to depths unperceived
alone we've swam that ancient aqueduct and seen
the beast long left hidden and unbelieved

life back home is hard to recall
what's our lifespan inside four walls?
a message in our minds was scrawled
it told us all empires must fall
Iberia, Jerusalem to Gaul
the orators and the southern drawls
plastic swords and paper dolls
babe, Rome is down for a downfall

they told us all empires must fall
fight or flight, now's the time
fight or flight, you decide
