"Roman Sky" as written by and Zachary James Baker Matthew Charles Sanders....
As the embers rose through the Roman sky
Tell me were you calm when they took your life?

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

Shared with us the world well before your time
Though they took your voice words forever shine

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

As they spoke your fate a fearless man replied
"As you will sentence me, your fear is beyond mine"

Just before you go, tell us how the heavens flow
Weightless evermore, as you walk beyond that door
Shine forever true

    General CommentThis song's about Giordano Bruno, he had thoughts way beyond his time and got executed because of charges heresy by Roman Catholic Church.

    'As you will sentence me, your fear is beyond mine' were his reply to his conviction.

    Anyway, this is from his quotes, you may judge his opinions yourself

    'There are countless suns and countless earths all rotating round their suns in exactly the same way as the seven planets of our system. We see only the suns because they are the largest bodies and are luminous, but their planets remain invisible to us because they are smaller and non-luminous. The countless worlds in the universe are no worse and no less inhabited than our earth. For it is utterly unreasonable to suppose that those teeming worlds which are as magnificent as our own, perhaps more so, and which enjoy the fructifying rays of a sun just as we do, should be uninhabited and should not bear similar or even more perfect inhabitants than our earth. The unnumbered worlds in the universe are all similar in form and rank and subject to the same forces and the same laws. Impart to us the knowledge of the universality of terrestrial laws throughout all worlds and of the similarity of all substances in the cosmos! Destroy the theories that the earth is the centre of the universe! Crush the supernatural powers said to animate the world, along with the so-called crystalline spheres! Open the door through which we can look out into the limitless, unified firmament composed of similar elements and show us that the other worlds float in an ethereal ocean like our own! Make it plain to us that the motions of all the worlds proceed from inner forces and teach us in the light of such attitudes to go forward with surer tread in the investigation and discovery of nature! Take comfort, the time will come when all men will see as I do.'

    Song MeaningThis song is about a Roman theologian (I forget his name) from the 1600s. He proposed ideas way beyond his time about space and science. The Catholic church did what it does best and put him to death, deeming him a heretic.

    "Shared with us the world well before your time
    Though they took your voice, words forever shine."
    This is in reference to this man's ideologies that turned out to be correct, ("Forever shine") yet he wasn't able to share his knowledge and move humanity forward.

    "As they spoke your fate, a fearless man replied,
    'As you will sentence me, your fear is beyond mine.'"
    This is a paraphrase of what the man said as he was killed, which can be interpreted in two ways. It could mean even though he was the dying man, the ones living should be more scared to be living in a world where knowledge is banned from existence. It could also be a mockery; "your power is so thin you're scared of anyone smarter than you because you know I'm right."

    Either way the song is extremely powerful and epic.
