cover

Canzone che probabilmente prende spunto dalla battaglia delle Termopili del 480 a.C. dove – leggenda vuole che – 300 opliti spartani guidati da Leonida tennero testa a decine di migliaia di soldati persiani. Quando Serse intimò ai greci la resa e la consegna delle armi, Leonida rispose: "Μολὼν λαβέ", "Venite a prendervele!", e i trecento furono finalmente spazzati via.
Over 300 dead, we still got pride
We've lost all our morals, we still got pride
Should we fight this war in some far corner of the globe
And learn how to die for some unjust cause

Is this our future?
Ashes are all that remain
It's easy when you got pride

How much pride does a dead soldier got?
His life so short, no chance to even start

The ones he left behind
The world he'll never see
But no one could deny that the soldier died with pride
