In this place, in the name of empire,
ends all hope and humanity.
Here a conquered people is broken,
humiliated, subjugated to the conqueror

This is the cornerstone of Empire
this place of The skull. Rome builds
many roads but each is marked
with crosses and curbed with skulls

Know this you who would build empire
the cross, the gallows, are your
friends. Random slaughter, judicial
terror are the props of your throne.

Remember, O, Caesar, there is no kingdom,
no power, no glory without the cross
