Frontiers of an Empire

It has existed
Ab aeterno
It has ruled
Absolutum dominium
It has a reach
Going from Europe
To Asia and the Levant
We are bees serving the queen
Every hive added to the hive mind
We ride along the frontiers
Knowing our acts might provoke
A response from the Gauls
Our actions are just, however
By them the empire grows
We are paid well
Cum gladio et sale
Serving the homeland
Serving the emperor
We are his arms
We are his hands
My life for the emperor
Vivere militare est
