"Sparta" as written by and Paer Sundstroem Joakim Broden....
Many many years ago, when Persia came ashore
Heeding Leonidas' call the Spartans went to war

Joined by their brothers, a few against the fateful horde
Hellenic hearts are set aflame, the hot gates calls their name

A final stand, stop the Persians, spear in hand
Form a wall, live to fall, and live forever

Sparta! Hellas!
Then, and again, sing of three hundred men
Slaughter! Persians!
Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender

Morning has broken, today they're fighting in the shade
When arrows blocked the sun they fell, tonight they dine in hell

By traitor's hand, secret passage, to their land
Know his name, know his shame will last forever

Sparta! Hellas!
Then, and again, sing of three hundred men
Slaughter! Persians!
Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender

Sparta! Hellas!
Then, and again, sing of three hundred men
Slaughter! Persians!
Glory and death, Spartans will never surrender

    Song MeaningThe Battle of Thermopylae is in many ways one of the most iconic last stands in history. King Leonidas and his 300 Spartans were certainly not as alone as portrayed in the famous movie "300", but in the end it was their sacrifice that would be remembred by the world to come. An amazing story of the Greek nation states who would rather die than lose their freedom
