Πως γίνεται να χάνεις όταν όλα είναι με το μέρος σου; Μόνο με προδοσία!

Όταν Οι Iron Maiden Έκαναν 
Μαθήματα Ιστορίας Για Την Μακεδονία!

Στις 29 Σεπτεμβρίου 1986 οι Βρετανοί «θρύλοι» του Heavy Metal, Iron Maiden,
 κυκλοφόρησαν επίσημα, μέσω της δισκογραφικής εταιρίας “EMI”, 
τον δίσκο με τίτλο «Somewhere In Time» όπου περιείχε και το τραγούδι ύμνο 
για τον Μέγα Αλέξανδρο, «Alexander the Great».
 Διαβάστε τους στίχους του τραγουδιού που λέει ιστορικές αλήθειες:

“Alexander The Great”

“My son ask for thyself another Kingdom, for that which I leave
 is too small for thee” (King Philip of Macedonia – 339 B.C.)

Near to the east In a part of ancient Greece In an ancient land called 
Macedonia Was born a son To Philip of Macedon

The legend his name was Alexander At the age of nineteen He became 
the Macedon King And he swore to free all of Asia Minor By the Aegian Sea In 334 B.C.


He utterly beat the armies of Persia [Chorus:] Alexander the Great His name
struck fear into hearts of men Alexander the Great Became a legend 
‘mongst mortal men King Darius the third Defeated fled Persia

The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King 
as well And he founded the city called Alexandria By the Tigris river 
He met King Darius again And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela Entering 
Babylon And Susa, treasures he found Took Persepolis the capital of Persia [Chorus:]

Alexander the Great His name struck fear into hearts of men Alexander the Great
 Became a God amongst mortal men A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke 
And Alexander cut the ‘Gordian knot’ And legend said that who untied 
the knot He would become the master of Asia Hellenism he spread far and wide

The Macedonian learned mind Their culture was a western way of life 
He paved the way for Christianity Marching on, marching on The battle
 weary marching side by side Alexander’s army line by line

They wouldn’t follow him to India Tired of the combat, pain and the glory
 Alexander the Great His name struck fear into hearts of men 
Alexander the Great He died of fever in Babylon
