"My son ask for thyself another kingdom,
for 'that which I leave is too small for thee"
(King Philip of Macedonia - 339 B.C.)
(0:15-Intro solo: Adrian Smith)

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 BC, he utterly beat the armies of Persia

Alexander the Great, his name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great, became a legend amongst 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

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
Helonism 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
