Septicflesh – Persepolis Lyrics

[Verse]
Flutes and pipes play a drunken rhyme
Entertaining the soldiers in the palace
Naked bodies, female slaves from Asia
Dance with promise for a night of pleasure

Mouths smell wine, the feast is going wild
Victorious and glorious, the men exalt their king
As in a fevered dream, Thais is entering
And she provokes him to do a special deed

"You have conquered the capital of orient
Display your power and make your enemies weep
Destroy their pride, the jewel of the desert
As they once destroyed, our temples for their king"

[Bridge]
"Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and spread the fire
Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and spread the fire"

[Interlude]
Οι φλόγες αγκάλιασαν τους ξύλινους τοίχους
Σαν πεινασμένα φίδια
Καταβροχθίζοντας στο πέρασμα τους

Χειρόγραφα και υπολείμματα των παλαιών χρόνων
Η Περσέπολη κλαίει, ενώ οι φλόγες απομακρύνουν τις σάρκες της

[Chorus]
Persepolis, now a pile of dust
A blackened carcass, a land of ash
Persepolis, you lost your crown
Persepolis, burned to the ground

Consumed by hate, ablaze by pride
Persepolis, naked as the sand
Persepolis, you lost your crown
Persepolis, burned to the ground
Persepolis, you lost your crown
Persepolis, burned to the ground

[Outro]
Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and set the fire
Burn this city to the ground
Take a torch and set the fire
