Alexander the Great






Iron Maiden - Alexander The Great

== My son, ask for thyself another kingdom,
For that which I leave is too small for thee.
 ==

Near to the east
In a part of ancient Greece
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Was born a son
To Philip of Macedon
The legend, his name was Alexander

At the age of 19
He became the Macedon King
And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
By the Aegean Sea
In 334 BC
He utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

King Darius III,
Defeated, fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King, as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria

By the Tigris river,
He met King Darius again
And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa, treasures he found
Took Persepolis—the capital of Persia

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a god amongst mortal men

A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the Gordian knot
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia

Hellenism, he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind
Their culture was a Western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity

Marching on, marching on

The battle-weary, marching side by side
Alexander's army line by line
They wouldn't follow him to India
Tired of the combat, pain, and the glory

Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon

The Shadow of - Anastasio - Uther






Kamelot - The Shadow of the Uther

due to the legend
a new king will come
rise in the morning horizon
brave and believing
for wars to be won
born with the heart of a lion
he will fight for a country unite
till the last drop of blood confines the oath
till all will respect him wherever he roams

deep in the woods
he can hear she's alive
lost in the dark
of a dragons lament
searching the highlands
in trying to find
trace of Morgana
the Princess of Hate

he will be holding
the sword in the stone
knights of the kingdom will join him
bring back the honor
of Pendragons name
from where the cauldron is boiling

but the shadow of Uther restrains
all the efforts to reunite the realm
a witch of his own blood from heaven expelled

deep in the woods
there are prints in the sand
leading towards
where the angels repent
king of the ocean
king of the land
nothing can save him
from Merlin's consent

coming of storms
battles of war
knights of thunder are fearless
thus goes the legend
the tale I was told
now we await his appearance
but the shadow of Uther remains
there is no way the king can break the oath
the shadow will follow wherever he roams

deep in the woods
there are prints in the sand
leading towards
where the angels repent
king of the ocean
king of the land
nothing can save him
from Merlin's consent
