The Lyrics

I decided after a history class to write up a quick song parody of Rome's rise and fall. Nickelback was good.
Hands on your spear
Can't get much clearer
Throw it and take them away
Now that you're leading
Your mind always reeling
Watch as it flies through the fray

From what you do
Rome is for you

You know you can lead them
It's time for the call
The Phalanx will run
and will conquer them all
I know by the look that I see
In their eyes
You will take them down and
You will watch them die

From what you do
Rome is for you

What becomes of...

Now that you did this
You ask no forgiveness
That's all that you say to the priests
They say you're mistaken
But look what you've taken
As lives flashed
You laughed through your teeth

From what you do
Because of you

You know you will be there
It will never fall
You swear to the Gods
But you fear of it all
They know by the look that they see
In your eyes
The Empire now
Won't be here for all time

From what you do
Rome is in rue

What becomes of...
From what you do!

Feeling the fear
Your fate so much clearer
Your empire fading away
The people are fleeing
Your order careening
Watch as your Rome fades to gray

What will you do
Your home is through

You thought you could lead them
And not take the fall
You had all in wonder
But Here is the wall
You know by the look that you see
In their eyes
That Rome will go down
And it's empire die

From what you do
Rome isn't true
What became of...?
