Alesia Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
The gress as green as it always was that sinister day
Blackbird sang their songs as they always did that black-letter day
The day we passed the great gate for the very last time
I did not look back, I knew we'd stay
Verse 2
I knew they I would not let us go leave the death strip
I saw the gleam in their eyes of fear and enslavement
Suffering from the crushing weight
Verse 3
I knelt ground take me home
Verse 4
Alesia, alisanos
Wake me when I'm gone
IANOTOUTA, eternity
Proclaim our barren sacrifice
Verse 5
On that ground we cherished life
We embraced death
As the children's cries trailed off
Sob yielded deathly hush
Verse 6
The grass as green as it always was that sinister day
As we walked the alleys like thousand times before
I knew we'd stay
Verse 7
Oudside Alesia
We offered a living sacrifice
Verse 8
Outside the doors of Alesia
Where our tears run dry
