    Lyrics:

    Audi famam illius.

    Solus in hostes ruit

    et patriam servavit.

    Audi famam illius.

    Cucurrit quaeque

    tetigit destruens.

    Audi famam illius.

    Audi famam illius.

    Spes omnibus, mihi quoque.

    Terror omnibus, mihi quoque.

    Ille

    iuxta me.

    Ille iuxta me.

    Socii sunt mihi.

    qui olim viri fortes

    rivalesque erant.

    Saeve certando pugnandoque

    splendor crescit.

    Translated Lyrics:

    The translation of the lyrics appears in the end game credits of Subspace Emissary as follows:

    I’ve heard legends of that person

    How he plunged into enemy territory

    How he saved his homeland

    I’ve heard legends of that person

    How he traveled the breadth of the land reducing all he touched to rubble.

    I’ve heard legends of that person

    I’ve heard legends of that person

    Revered by many -- I, too, revere him

    Feared by many -- I, too, fear him

    Now that person

    Stands at my side

    Now that person stands at my side

    Now my friends are with me

    Some of them were once heroes

    Some, my mortal enemies

    And as we face each other in battle, locked in combat

    We shine ever brighter

    Literal Translation:

    Although the above translation is fine for idiomatic English, the translation takes many liberties with the tenses and strict verb meanings in the Latin. An accurate translation which stays true to the Latin follows:

    Listen to the legend of that one.

    Alone he rushed into his enemies

    and saved his fatherland.

    Listen to the legend of that one.

    He ran, destroying everything he touched.

    Listen to the legend of that one.

    Listen to the legend of that one.

    There is hope for everyone, and also for me.

    There is fear for everyone, and also for me.

    That one

    is close to me.

    That one is close to me.

    They are allies to me,

    Those who were once brave men

    and who were once rivals.

    And by contesting and by fighting fiercely

    Our splendor grows.
