ORPHEUS - Tears of Blood and Sand

Answer!
What is beneath your feet?
Answer!

Life in its aging course teaches all things
Time in its aging course teaches all things

Sacred ground, Doctore. Watered with the tears of blood.
Your tears! Your blood! Your pathetic lives forged into something of worth.

You have been blessed! Each and every one of you, to find yourselves here at the ludus!
Proove yourselves in the hard days to follow, proove yourselves more than a commonslave - more than a man!

Succeed, and stand proud among the titans!
Fail and die, either here where you stand, or sold off to the mines.

Listen! Learn! And, perhaps, live - As Gladiators!
Your tears! Your blood! Your pathetic lives forged into something of worth.

A Gladiator does not fear death. He embraces it. Caresses it. Fucks it.
Each time he enters the arena, he slips his cock in the mouth of the beast, and prays to thrust home before the jaws snap shut on it.
Wake me when it's time to die again

Your tears! Your blood! Your pathetic lives forged into something of worth.
Listen! Learn! And, perhaps, live - As Gladiators!

I have done this thing because it is just. Blood demands blood.
Your lives are your own. Forge your own path, or join with us
and together we shall kill them all!

Wake me when it's time to die again

What is beneath your feet?
Your Tears of Blood and Sand
