It is beneath these pillars, these monuments, that this city lies in wait.
It is upon a sky bathed in crimson, that widened eyes fixate.
Magma caressing, magma embracing:
These buildings fall into flame.
From Enyo, a gentle kiss, wrapped in a blanket woven with fear.
Malaise, savior from complacency, a shrine for you created;
built from teeth, from blood, from soil and disdain.
Remorse, in untimely arrival, a deluge for you unleashed;
composed of tears, of waste, and panic.
Beneath, in deceit, in sleep: Agharta.
In merging light, in merging shadow; below the mountain.
Terror evolving, giving birth to regret; please echo amongst smoke.
Behind follows assent, compliance to stolen sight.
While the placid lay in the path of devastation,
A glaze comes over the eyes of the fearful.
Masks of Socius discarded,
to mimic tongues of deceit;
with chaos came the shape to imbibe an abandoned sky.
It is beneath these pillars, these monuments, that this city lies in waste.
It is upon a sky bathed in crimson, that widened eyes dilate.
Magma caresses, magma embraces: These buildings fallen to flame.
