Child of the Romans

Bow down
in the temple columns 
and blood train
before the gods
or the saints 
that have replaced them 

if you wonder 
why I'm in love with you

my ancestors sacked rome
for the girls
not the gold

and I will kill to 
capture your heart
but I don't have to
child of the Romans
bread and circus 
hippodrome and chariots 
do not offer what your insides do
I will kill for you, but would never lie to you
