I am quite sure the words are a mix of ancient (but existing) languages. The first verse clearly says "Anol Shalom", which is Aramaic for "Oh great Peace" and the second one ends undoubtly with the word "Adhunhaì", which means "the Almighty Lord" (if you watch Gibson's movie "The Passion Of The Christ", you will hear Jim Caviezel clearly pronouncing this word every time he speaks to God, like in the initial scene when he learns about Juda's traison and calls upon God to give him the strenght to resist the temptation of the Devil).
The next word is Flavum, which is a Latin adjective used to state that a man is a descendant of a particular family, the Flavi (gens Flavia); this I know for sure because I studied Latin for 5 years. I also recognize some words from ancient Gaelic. Maybe the "ve va da pa da de da de dumda" has no meaning, it's like a "tra-la-la-la-la" thing, but the rest of the song is WORDS, and existing words, I'm sure.
