Lyrics

Album version

There's magic on a summer evening
The frogs are croaking in the pond
We're turning towards salvation
Across the Rubicon

All the day we work with our hands
Digging in the Tuscan soil
Planting peas and cabbage
Nourished by the toil

Here in Cuomoville
We don't need chains of gold, whoa-oh
Leave it for the Roman soldiers
In their winged chariots

It's a surrogate for heaven
As the wicked world turns 'round
We bring each other comfort
Never let each other down

And if this is all we are given
I'm sure that I'll be satisfied
To know that you are with me
On the day I die

Feed 'em, feed 'em
To the lions
Feed 'em, feed 'em
To the lions
Taste your own medicine
Feed 'em, feed 'em
To the lions
Wave your hands
As they are dying
Taste your own medicine

Here in Cuomoville
We don't need chains of gold, whoa-oh
Leave it for the Roman soldiers
All hail the Roman soldiers
In their winged chariots

Demo version

Here in Cuomoville
We don't need coins of gold, whoa-oh
Leave it for the Roman soldiers
In their winged chariots

There's magic on a summer evening
The frogs are croaking in the pond
We're turning toward salvation
Feasting on prasad

All the day we worked with our hands
Digging in New England soil
Planting peas and cabbage
Nourished by the toil

Here in Cuomoville
We don't need coins of gold, whoa-oh
Leave it for the Roman soldiers
In their winged chariots

It's like a surrogate for heaven
And as the spinning wheel turns 'round
We bring each other comfort
Never let each other down

And if this is all we are given
I think that I am satisfied
To know that you were with me
On the day I died

Hey, there's more to life
There's more
... the lions
Turn away when they are dying
Hey, there's more to life
There's more

Here in Cuomoville
We don't need coins of gold, whoa-oh
Leave it for the Roman soldiers
For the Roman soldiers
In their winged chariots
