The Lyrics

Dark Ages weren't so dark - they just proved the proverb "ex oriente lux" right. Let's continue what Merry & Pippin initiated...
Vandal hordes in Andalucia
The Goths and Franks roam all over Gaul
Huns and Slavs rage at the Balkans
Italy on the Ostrogoths did fall
Caesar's town may be dead and desolate
But Basileios what to do he'll know
Mobilize the cataphracts and light horse
March the legions - Byzantines are go!

Empire strikes back, Roma infinitum!
Constantinople has mobilized her force -
Empire strikes back, Roma infinitum!
Cataphracts on march, Kyrie Eleison!

Vandal hordes are crushed in Af-reeca
The Hunnic fighters died upon the hills
And sang fat lady for king Teja
and after he died the Ostrogoths were gone
Back at home the Hippodrome held races
between the reds and blues and greens and white
Belisarios, it was and Narses
who just proved that East is the light!

Empire strikes back, Roma infinitum!
Constantinople has mobilized her force -
Empire strikes back, Roma infinitum!
Cataphracts on march, Kyrie Eleison!

The Franks are pushed back as are the Persians
The lands united under double eagle
Huns are gone and no more Attila
Will the Arabs provide another sequel?
The Roman army, charging cataphracts
to fight the Gothic line -
Alan hordes are pushed into Black Sea -
Byzantine is name for another time -
Khazars checked just as the Avars
C'mon you Vikings, we have for you Greek Fire!

Empire strikes back in Andaluca, in Italia, on the Black Sea shores
Empire strikes back in the Af-ree-ca, in Gallia, the Huns are no more

Empire strikes back in Illyria, its glory is restored
