"Smile Back At Death" as written by and Blaze Bayley....
Blessed father, what is it that the gods will for me?
Is it their will that I should do this duty alone?
I am a slave and what difference can I possibly make?
When all I do is what I must so I don't die this day

Home... let me go home

When death smiles at you, so the father said
There's nothing left to do... smile back at death

I will show them blood
They will chant out my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance alone

In eternity echoes what we do in life
With honour and strength, I must keep this truth alive
Now it's time for justice, see the emperor defied
The last with of a dying man, to pursue what is right

Home... let me go home

When death smiles at you, so the father said
There's nothing left to do... smile back at death

I will show them blood
They will chant out my name
Time for the tyrant to fear

Gladiator protector
Father to a murdered son
Gladiator protector
I will see my vengeance alone

They just don't know they are conquered
They continue to fight
Would we be any different?
Wouldn't we bark and bite?

For all that we hold dear
For our families and our life
Like each breath is our last
As we fight not to die

In this arena, I who will not die won't salute you
In this life or the next, my vengeance I will have

You turned me into a warrior slave
You made me kill them all
But as time goes, you will see
It is just one more kill, then it's done
