Lyrics:

WAR AT MARATHON - (Based on the historic Battle of Marathon, 490 BC)

VERSE 1

Subjugated / after pushing hard back
Our cousins were / coming under attack
So we joined / and came to their aid
A bloody battle / of ships and blades

Together we / repelled the attack
Took casualties / and we knew they'd come back
Years later / the battle returned
Our cousin's homeland / was ravaged and burned

CHORUS

You know we have to be strong / And Let the terror begone
Beat the path that we're on / To weather War at Marathon

Fight with sharpened swords drawn / No conclusion is ever foregone
We'll ignite, impart a new dawn / Won't lose the War at Marathon

VERSE 2

Superior forces / invaded again
Pincer moves / trapped the foes on the plain
Our rivals outflanked / without calvary
Encircled fighters / had found their defeat

Frenzied panic, / they fled for their boats
Our lesser numbers / went for their throats
Civilization / for the future we prayed
Mighty armies / will fall when outplayed

CHORUS

You know we have to be strong / And Let the terror begone
Beat the path that we're on / To weather War at Marathon

Fight with sharpened swords drawn / No conclusion is ever foregone
We'll ignite, impart a new dawn / Won't lose the War at Marathon

-SOLO-

CHORUS2

Fought with sharpened swords drawn / The conclusion was never foregone
Thought we'd ascend-to where we belong / Won the War at Marathon

We believed and held on so strong / This time the underdog won
We beat, repelled what was wrong / We drew the line at Marathon
[Exit]
