Epica - Wings Of Freedom Lyrics




O amici, o victoria
Gloriam cantabimus
Celebrate hanc victoriam
Pugnae inita

Up with our backs against the wall
When this safety is a prison
There is nothing left to live for
Soon we will rise above it all
When our victims turn to martyrs
Come and join the final encore

The enemy's frightening
We give our all
The bigger they come
The harder they fall

Put on your wings and take the sky
Fly into liberty
All of the anguish set aside
As we are fighting for freedom
Put on your wings and feel alive
Fly out of misery
Reclaiming the land that lies outside
As we are fighting their treason
Shine through the sky
On your wings of freedom

Are we only animals that live inside a jail?
Aching from desire to be free?
There's a world outside if we are not afraid to fail
Come on grab your wings and follow me

We're not meant to live in this cage
A bird to fly but never crawl
It fills my heart with a fiery rage
The time has come, climb over the wall
Hope will always keep us alive
Our fallen friends won't have died in vain
Strongly armed with our will to survive
Leaving a world full of pain

Our freedom, Quietus
The choice is yours for the taking
Our freedom, the Grim Reaper
In the end is one

I will never settle, living my whole life inside these walls
Show me your will to survive
We are not the cattle, lacking the desire that it falls
Go out reclaim the land
I shall fight for justice, fearless will I face my enemies
We'll make humanity thrive
Now it's time to trust us, come and join the fight because it's
Time to be free, for you and for me, we will not bow down on our knees

To rise above monsters we have to abandon our humanity

Day and night dividing the legions
Ignorance will show its weakness
Lasting peace an abandoned illusion
Blinded by trust in a twilight zone
Day and night disguising their secrets
Ignorance will kill the fearless
Offerings of reckless courage

Going left, going right
This is our final fight
Going east, going west
This is our final quest

Put on your wings and take the sky
Fly onto victory
All of the anguish set aside
As we are fighting for freedom
Put on your wings and feel alive
Fly out of misery
Reclaiming the land that lies outside
As we are fighting their treason
Shine through the sky
On your wings of freedom

O amici, o victoria
Gloriam cantabimus
Celebrate hanc victoriam
Pugnae venturae
Nos rapti sumus?
Nosmet raptores?
Constituamus nunc

    It's up there!

  2. Lenardski

    everytime i hear 5:08, i get goosebumps

  3. Eternal Autarchy

    This is so ironic because Epica is a pro-imperialist white supremacist band who supported the massacre in Libia (they even made a song to applaud it when NATO bombed innocents over there!) and now they pretend to make a cover from an anime that is basically the fight between a small nation (Eldia) against the expanding empire of Marley. Lol.

    Eternal Autarchy

    @Tony 15 The lyrics make it sound like if he deserved what happened to him. Lybia had the highest human development index in the african continent before they got invaded by the NATO forces. Nowadays its just another african hellhole, thanks to the intervention. All because Gadaf i didn't want to kneel down to the united states. I don't know how Epica has the nerve to make covers for the music on an anime that, precisely, is about a small country vs a large empire. Heck, even in the episode "That Day", Grisha Yeager mentions, both in the manga and the anime, that one of the reasons Marley wanted to attack the Paradis island was to taken their oil. Epica pretends to side with the underdog in an anime but sided with imperialism in the real life. That's why it's so hypocritical.

    Sarah Mackay

    They aren’t white supremacist. From what I have heard, the basis of any claims that they are racist is horse shit and came from things taken out of context.
    As for the Lybia thing, they said straight up in an interview that they are critical of how the West has divided the Middle East and criticized how Western media portrayed themselves as “liberators” while that nation is completely fucked now because of what happened.. so yeah.. what you said is simply not true.

    Sarah Mackay

    And here is the source of the interview I mentioned, if you wanna fact check me: http://metalchestofwonders.com/en/interview/simone-simons-mark-jansen-epica-2016-07-01

    @Sarah Mackay Thank you for providing a link! The claim that they're racist sounded like bull but I wanted to double check to be sure, and having a handy link made that much easier.

    Sarah Mackay

    Rain Raven
    No problem. I think more people should provide sources when making claims, because it allows people to come to their own conclusions. Just to be clear though, that link is only in reference to their thoughts on Libya, the Middle East, and western media. But that was a large portion of the OP’s argument. And what Epica says in the article clearly conveys the opposite of what the OP stated.
