• In Response to: Gerrard speaks of Gladiator (Lovely Lillith)

We've got dozens of people asking what the lyrics are, dozens more telling what the lyrics are, dozens more asking what they mean, and even dozens more telling about the meaning of the words. Most people claiming for a fact that they know what language it is fail to translate a single word. Those who do translate it only manage small words (which are sometimes not even said EXACTLY as it was in the song i.e. flavum/flavus). If Lisa rambled on for a few minutes in this song in gibberish, it is no wonder that something that came out of her mouth resembled some simpler words of the thousands of known languages (someone said that the Gaelic word for "him" is in the song; not exactly a long word). If you find any Spanish, Gaelic, Hebrew, Yiddish, Greek, Latin, etc. in this song; it is coincidence. She had no intention to say anything in any spoken language. I realize that not many people will read this (seeing as how the arguement started 2 years ago, but hopefully the few that did manage to find this conversation skipped to the end comment (this one) and saved themselves the trouble of reading through every single last comment, like I did. Of course, with how much I've been rambling on, you may as well have read the whole thing.
