Eluveitie lyrics : "The Siege"

Scorched earth we left
A barren land of ash
Our fatherland laid waste

Be the void our $#&@ing monument

At a leaden dawn

At this ominous morn

Pila loomed on the horizon

Talons of the wolverine
Exanimate legions formed
At the very gates of Avaricum

Believed invulnerable
This calling wall
But straight out of nowhere

Before our eyes this godsdawn bane arose

Thus Avaricum burns

Under a dead sky
Avaricum drowns
In blood and demise

Siege towers emerged
Protruding from the ground

Standing out against the threatening sky
As if to mock all valiantness
Face to face with an eye-levelled enemy

Serried roman ranks
Embattled upon our hold

Cut off and trapped inside
As the carnage was at hand
As the creak of the winches extolled our doom

The slaughter befell Avaricum
Dead suffused the oppidum
Left to pillage, sack and rape

Avaricum the brave became Avaricum the grave
