This song was created for Game of Bands round 70 : "Ancient Greece and/or Rome"

Lyrics:

THE DAY THE STARS FELL (Labia Mea In Navi Auro Mentiar)

From the top of Olympus
The gods stare down
The underworld is calling
The dead are paid to be
Hades rules the darkness.

As the boats cross the Acheron,
The lips shine gold
With offerings
Lead to the entrance,
The Afterlife
A weight from the gilded soul

Reliqui stellae ceciderunt amica dies
Zeus tenet curia
In s?peris, labia mea in navi
Auro mentiar
Caelum contemplare
quomodo labor me in abyssum irent.

The day the stars fell I left my love.
Zeus holds court in the heavens above
I am lying in the boat with gold upon my lips
How can the heavens watch me as I slip into the abyss?

Apollo feeds my soul - Music, truth and light
Another god to rest my faith
Another time, another place
Athena give me reason, when none is left to show

Hestia keep my family, a life as yet unknown
Keep my river flowing
the stars, the sky, the sea
The day the stars fell, Olympus has broken me

The day the stars fell I left my love.
Zeus holds court in the heavens above
I am lying in the boat with gold upon my lips
How can the heavens watch me as I slip into the abyss?
[Exit]
