From the east the shadow comes
The demon-king is rising
Upon the west his greedy eyes
But he will hear our battle cries
Ambassadors come to demand submission
To their vast alien domain
Many cities bow to Persian might
But for our freedom shall we fight

A few thousand strong we march out
To meet an overwhelming force
Blocking the pass to stop their advance
For survival there shall be no chance

At the gates we wait for our foe
Soon their massive army arrives
Yet before swords and spears do sing
Another emissary comes to our king
Making promises to sway our stance
Our weapons he wants us to lay down
Come and get them Leonidas replies
Time has come for battle cries

Vastly outnumbered we stand our ground
Great losses we inflict upon our foe
We rather die free than live in slavery
Even the Immortals can’t quell our bravery

At the hot gates I stand
Today I die for my land
For freedom now my blood I shed
For this day was I born and bred

For two days we slaughter the enemy
No matter how many are sent against us
Then we are surrounded on the third day
Still we fight and shall not give way
Most of our allies now withdraw
A few hundred men shall remain to fight
Against impossible odds we shall stand
Today is a good day to die for our land

Scarlet cloaks fight to the death today
With our Thespian brothers side by side
When our spears and swords are shattered
We struggle on no matter how battered


Tell the Spartans, stranger passing by
That obedient to their laws here we lie
