Serenissima Lyrics

The Ascention (Instrumental)

 

Queen of the Sea

From the burnt ashes of the Roman Empire where peace was cracked
She burn with the escape from the hard barbarian attacks
Many people built they house in a magic place encircled and protected
By Neptune’s waters like a wall of stones

When a ring is dropped into the sea and gone
There’s a path through the sea and this great town

There is a magic town on the sea
The Republic of freedom is the land of the free
She’s Queen of the sea and Venice is your name
With a golden lion as the symbol of your reign
Queen of the sea

Like a god of waters she has the control of the Italian seas and in this way
She leads the trade with the rich orient
Many sails are ready for every battle with her arsenal there’s not obstacles
Closed is the book when she goes to war

And the sail went near the holy land
To free the body of saint for our name

There is a magic town on the sea
The Republic of freedom is the land of the free
She’s Queen of the sea and Venice is your name
With a golden lion as the symbol of your reign
Queen of the sea

Many sails are ready for every battle with her arsenal there’s not obstacles
And the sail went near the holy land to free the body of saint for our name
She’s Queen of the sea

The Queen of the sea
Reigns in the Middle age
On her flag there’s as lion, symbol of an free reign
With powerful Sails
She rides the waves of the Sea
Taking Honour Pride and Glory
For her legendary domain

 

Doge

Doge Tell me about your secret
Your legend was born so long ago
From the ancient families
“primus inter pares”

Symbol of aristocracy
You’re not a weight for the poor
Notary of your people

When the reign is in peace you’re a supreme Judge
You sit at the head of town’s councils
But in times of war you command all the fleet
and lead Venice army to victory

Doge leader of the Church of Saint Marc
Religious independence reigns in town
Protect many persecuted
From the roman power

Elected from a true council
Represents us until his death
To other royals

From your golden ship you throw the ring into the sea
In the ascension day we celebrate our domain
With this sacred rite you marry us to the sea
And this legacy will be repeated every spring

“He is our lord, the Dux, if you like”
He’s elected by our major council
Now the time has come and you are crowned
On the giant’s scale of the ducal home

 

The Merchant

The Travel is gone
On the Orient Sea
Where my heart must learn the law of the jungle

Run for the best
For any chance
My eyes only see the gold in my hands

The moon is the light of my return
Though golden roads
I wait for the prize of all my jobs
Because I’m the merchant of the sea

Fight every day
Against the time
For a new deal
In every place

The rich orient
Gave me great life
Made of power and comfort
I’m a lord

The moon is the light of my return
Through golden roads
I wait for the prize for all my jobs
Because I’m the merchant of the sea

 

Golden Cross

Ten coins for the island of Zara
Ten coins for the glorious Venetian fleet
Ten coins for a new world

So came the siege and the fall of Zara
The blade of hate strucks strong against all the knights
This is not the will of God
Repent!

Alexis, it’s time to keep the promises
You must pay us for your found throne
Riders will not stop without prize

Houses burn in the flames
No honor no mercy
Take the cross from devil’s hands
Sell your soul

Living hell for 14 days
Without rules in the town
Sings the bitch in the house of god
For a golden cross

You must run to save your life in this burning hell
The hand of fear is just behind you
Don’t look back for the coming of the lady in black

 

Marco Polo

In a cold cell thinking of my life
Writing memories of magic east

Leaving from my town
Walking the long silk road
I’ve passed many stranger countries

Travelling in my journey
I have see
Illusion and reality
Mile after mile
I’ve touched the creation of God

Long in time is the road that leads me
To live all my dreams in a magic and distant land
Climbing mountains, hills, plains and desert places
I came to know a golden land in the far east
Its magical dream

Learning a new life I built my way
To trade and to speak with a new world

Eighteen years are gone I am back to home
Then in the war I was taken prisoner

Travelling in my journey I have see illusion and reality
Mile after mile I’ve touched the creation of God

Long in time is the road that leads me
To live all my dreams in a magic and distant land
climbing mountains, hills, plains and desert places
I came to know a golden land in the far east
Its magical dream

 

Across the Sea

Live this heart running through the sea
Silence is broken only by the waves
We travel towards the sun, where it sets down
Day by day we come back to our home again

Across the sea so far away
Remaining a dream in every day
Across the sea so far away
Infinity is hard to comprehend

Magic lights shining in the night
When the stars lead us on the road
When the wind blows so hard we’ll fly through these waves
On these waves we’ll dance with this song once again

Across the sea so far away
Remaining a dream in every day
Across the sea so far away
Infinity is hard to comprehend

Across the sea so far away
Remaining a dream in every day
Across the sea so far away
Infinity is hard to comprehend

 

Black Death

Quiet like breath it came from east
The human eye can not see its powerful fist
Slowly the ship brought us a kiss of death
Thousands of people are marked by its plan

Now where you gonna go?
The silent hand is just behind you
There is no way to escape from this plague

No hope no weapons to try the fight
People are affected by the cut of its scythe
Every place is burned by its touch
Black is the sign that it leaves as such

Now where you gonna go?
The silent hand is just behind you
There is no way to escape from this plague

Oh God please deliver us
From this infernal plague
Oh God please deliver us
We pray for your divine sign

 

Enemies at the Gates

Lightnings of fire in the sea
From eastern lands
The beginning of the battle of the proud
Genoa began its march to conquer the sea
Burning and killing in 1372

With the help of the empire
The theft is done
The path now leads to war
With this improper act You sign your fatal fate
Gather all your troops it’s time to go

My Enemies are at the gates
We have to run for the last chance
So we’ll be the wall to defend the town
My enemies will not pass

No good news is coming from the fleet
Ships are burning for a hard and fast blow
We have to run to fight this desperate siege
We’ll be ready for the battle in the night

Our four-thousand men are marching to war
And Zeno strikes with his blow
Cannons are striking men are fighting
For a single goal
Win with a heart bold

My Enemies are at the gates
We have to run for the last chance
So we’ll be the wall to defend the town
My enemies will not pass

No peace and no truce for the affront the peace is die
Rich and poor are fighting for their life
Triple chains are ready to close the way
And the cannons are armed and hot to fire

Free is the captain who leads us to the stone
18 ships from the east have joined to blow
Hard is the sound when the stone is struck
Every defense disappears in a cloud of dust

The sound of drums will be heard for a long time
Genoa is defeated and the death is cast
Enemies flee and retreat by the line
Many shouts of joy echo from men

The Doge is triumphant to the entrance in the square
Together with the commander by his side
All the lost possessions were conquered in the sea
Peace came only after a great victory

Once again we maintain our power rule
Hail to our Lord
Captain Vettor now is ready for another run
Raising the lion’s flag

My Enemies are at the gates
We have to run for the last chance
So we’ll be the wall to defend the town
My enemies will not pass

 

Marching on the Northern Land

Ready for the glory and for the fight
Against the fire we ride
Covered with blood and steel for our pride
We take the winds of doom on our side

High horns play for the lion’s heart
Strong is the blow that strike to the start
Defences are ready along the line
The fear of the roar will show you its shine

Riding in the wind side by side
For the lion’s glory through time
Taking the way in the plain now we can
We are marching on the northern land

Holy is the road that leads to God
As sacred is the path to protect the weak
Freedom is a treasure that must be defended
Epic is the sound that will praise our deeds

Strong is the wind that come from the sea
To rule on all these lands and to bring the gain
Power and mighty come from our claws
Now waves the lion’s flag from these high walls

Riding in the wind side by side
For the lion’s glory thought the time
Taking the way in the plain now we can
We are marching on the northern land

 

Lepanto’s Call

The saint army run trought the sea to stop the advance of the Turkish fleet
The only hope is victory
The Pope launches his blessing on all of the people, fight for God!
The wind is now on our side
Kneeling down I prayed God together with all my men
To grant us the victory in this day

Blood and tears the silence now is near
Around the battlefield there are hundreds of ships
Dark and cold is the line before of the storm
Beyond it there is the fall we have not to cross

The Lion’s ships open the dance shooting with cannons destroy the heads
The battle of the Lepanto begins
Turks displaced by Christian power looking for the flagship to end the match
But venice masters make the wall
Don John calls loud the charge doria comes back face to face
The Lightning is ready to hit with its last shot

Strong and fast this is a sea of death
The horn sounds the last assault It strikes with angry like a storm
Waterfall of steel and lead to close
The way of safety we are so near to win

 

The Fall

Many troops ride
The northern lands
Defenses are weak
The end is near

Shady deals broken pacts
Do we have a chance?
The enemy’s army
Is marching off to war

Calling his name St. Mark
Lives again after the fall
Facing his fate there will
Be glory and the story will never ends

Council met today
Surrender or fight?
Cannons fire again
Maybe for the last time

Voices of conspiracies
Of a French attack
Tonight we’re not even
Safe in our beds

Calling his name St. Mark
Lives again after the fall
Facing his fate there will
Be glory and the story will never ends

 

Medieval Steel

There was a time long ago
When men fought for steel
The sword was worth more than gold
And easy to make the kill

Twenty years in the gallows
One slave began to rise
He fights a thousand battles
With hatred in his eyes

Medieval steel cuts you like a knife
The warriors on the battlefield
Laying down their lives
For steel

Then came the day he was set free
Free to roam this land
A will in is his heart and his sword in his hand
He began to take command

Over the mountain through the glen
Came the king and his marching men
To fight the fight and to kill the slave
When the fight was over he was dead

Medieval steel cuts you like a knife
The warriors on the battlefield
Laying down their lives
For steel
