Track Name: Lupercalian Spirits Rise
A hate-bred conception

A shameful birth, twins discarded, left to perish
Fate ordains a rescue from the tide by a she-wolf
Protected in her cave, the obsidian orifice of origin: The Lupercal
Raised by the lupine matriarch, they grow, forged in the fires of war

This is the rise of the Lupercalian

He that leaps over my battlements shall perish
Brother strikes down brother, the first king crowned, from the dirt he ascends
To find the first kingdom, to find Rome, lighting the beacon
Raising the world from the dark, marching his armies, carving his mark

Centuries pass, a palace is built atop the cave
The Emperor, first citizen, communes with mother-wolf
Romulus and Augustus, linked by birthplace of empire
Lupercalian spirits rise to the heights of immortal legacy

Possessed with the lupine spirit to conquer
Possessed by war, possessed by fire, and desire
Track Name: Black Prayer To Aeolus
Exhale, engulf us with protection and providence
Blow a deep breath, ensure our fleet naval dominance

Aeolus, our father
Aeolus, our defender

Spoil the wine-dark waters where our opponents lurk and dare
Sink them with obsidian whisper, let their hulls crack, their sails tear
Ensure the supremacy of your children, lend victory to our fight
From atop your jagged rock throne, sentinel of ancient might

Aeolus, hear my prayer, knelt at your shrine where waves roar and crash
Give us strength, patron divine, make our enemies cower when our ships do clash

God of wind, lord of storms, battle alongside the people of your isle
We request your presence in battle, us people of your isle
Aeolus, emerge from your stoney cave hollowed in the face of the summit
Armed with holy gust and triumphant gale, let our adversary plummet
