"Nabataea" as written by and Andreas Deris....
Way back in time was a nation sublime
For they had what it takes to lead a good life
Foremen believed it’s because of some secrets
They brought the fight and it never ended

Hush, don’t cry
Deep in the night come the raiders
Shiver and pray
Petra will fall to the Great

Oh Nabataea
You came so far
Now gone you are
Oh Nabataea
You morning star
Now so afar
Nabataea

People desire and people admire
Some always try to reign with fire
So are the seals, hence the old Nabateans
Have disappeared under the wire

Hush, don’t cry
Deep in the night come the raiders
Shiver and pray
Petra will fall to the Great

Oh Nabataea
You came so far
Now gone you are
Oh Nabataea
You morning star
Now so afar
Nabataea

Petra, you were a shining star
Unique in your time
Petra, 2000 years on we still
Suffer the same crimes
Petra, today we’re trying hard
To reach your paradigm

We say no
To the ultra-extreme
No, we say no
To the killers of dreams
No
No

Children, children have no fear
Soon we all will disappear
Children, children don’t you cry
Make no sound or we will die

Children, children have no fear
Soon we all will disappear
Children, children don’t you cry
Make no sound or we will die

Once there was a land midst of the chaos
Floating like an island in old blood
People lived in peace, there was no hunger
Though they had no slaves, believe it or not

Once there was a nation without soldiers
Never brought a war to other lands
They lived without king or queen or ruler
Once there was the first democracy

Oh Nabataea
You came so far
Now gone you are
Oh Nabataea
You morning star
Now so afar
Oh Nabataea
Oh Nabataea

    General CommentWell, even though Helloween is one of my favorite bands of all time, I feel I have to correct this song. The line "They lived without king or queen or ruler" is just flat out false. Nabataea was a monarchy ruled by a king...actually they had 3 or 4 kings in the time they existed. Furthermore, they did actually fight against the Romans who obviously conquered them.

    Sorry Andi, I love ya man, but you need to study more next time before writing lyrics about history.

    Link(s)Well, according to wikipedia, Heffro is right. I´m still looking for any information about any kind of democracy that happened in Nabatea. Andi explains vaguely about it in this promo video on facebook - facebook.com/… and also - facebook.com/…
