This is Sparta!

This is Sparta!

This is Sparta!
What’s a little broken bone
Can a knife stop the true warrior
We live to die
In death our legend lives forever!

This is Sparta!

Put on a brave face
War comes!
We mingle our sweat with the blood of our enemies
Paint our faces with their entrails

This is Sparta!

New borns tested in the ocean depths!
Let the true Spartans float
The rest to the fishes be consigned
Little spartan fingers! Give them the hilt of the sword!

This is Sparta!

The soul of the spartan lives forever
Death is a transfiguration
We fight on in the sinews of those who live
See the muscles glisten! We bring death and destruction to our foes!

This is Sparta!

Love is war!
But the keenest blade is too blunt.
I am confounded!
Sweet words live in my head
I woo my fair lady only in my dreams

This is Sparta!

A thousand spears before rejection!
A million cuts but spare me “No!”
Let me lay down my life for my brothers at arm.
Let me go first – cut short my despair!

This is Sparta!
