Our empire has fallen
The columns came crashing down
Faster than children could outrun the shadows drunk with hysteria
The survivors are running for their lives
As precious dreams erupt before their very eyes

Tonight, its over, at long last we will fall
Ruins will fight in our stead

My flesh is burning from the embers
But still the brilliant tale of our utopia
Survives tonight her beautiful exterior may crash and burn
To ash but the fight for her honor will rage on
I hope I never see the end I hope
I never have to live without her comfort but for now she dies
