stand of the spartans lyrics – manilla road

[trilogy 3: gates of fire: part 1]

in the wake of the sea
victorious the athenian fleet
stand at thermopile
with king leonides

the persian horde is come
stand of the spartans

oracle’s prophesy
sparta’s life for the death of a king
between mountain and sea
hold defenders of greece

the persian horde is come
stand of the spartans

sparta, athens and thebes
send their warriors to meet destiny
persian blood on the beach
only death brings defeat

the persian horde is come
stand of the spartans
