Gladiatorcover God of War - Jackal

Music: Jackal  |  Lyrics: Rick Waalewijn
Featuring Henky Backer battling with John (solo)

Into the Arena we go. Giving our lives, selling our souls.
Killing for Caesar. Fighting for Glory. Listen to me. Hear my story.

Born as a Celt in a land full of rage.
From a head-hunters tribe in the Iron Age.
I learned how to fight to honor our Gods,
the Morrigan, Phantom Queen of the Wars

A prophecy told of a land in the south.
Where Warriors meet story told mouth to mouth.
An Emperor rules by a thumb in the air.
In a circus of blood where only lions dare.

Into the Arena we go. Giving our lives, selling our souls.
Killing for Caesar. Fighting for Glory. Listen to me. Hear my story.

Enslaved as a child by pillaging Romans.
Put up a fight I was their bad Omen.
Killed for my Honor send one over.
Died by the sword at the White Cliffs of Dover.

Took me to Rome, perfected my skills.
No freedom for me only the thrills.
The oath that I swore, my life for the gods.
Making the kills against the odds.

Thumbs go down or thumbs go up.
Caesar decides who’s blood s’ gonna drop.

Into the Arena we go. Giving our lives, selling our souls.
Killing for Caesar. Fighting for Glory. Listen to me. Hear my story.

Thumbs go down or thumbs go up.
Caesar decides who’s blood s’ gonna drop.

They marked my body to identify me.
Fight to the death. By the rules it should be.
With one knee on the ground my opponent will die.
My sword in his neck, not even a cry.

The prophecy told of a child, it was me.
I won all my fights, victory, I am free.
A long journey home to Britannia.
Leave through the Porta Sanavivaria.

Into the Arena we go. Giving our lives, selling our souls.
Killing for Caesar. Fighting for Glory. Listen to me. Hear my story..
