lyrics

Step into the halls of the forgotten once
Someone carved their pride and power into black stone
The lion's guardian over them
she's ready to defend, ready to defend
The only memory that remains
she rest her eyes on them,
a civilization lost in sand,
what other nations took from them,
the lion's guardian over them.

The pieces of a secret revealed before my eyes
naked on the floor the truth so grand, we can't defy
the end of our time will come
when we will be gone, when we will be gone
and we will turn into a song
an anthem or a poem,
it is all foregone
that we will become,
a relic left up on a lawn.

The mighty souls of kingdoms, lost in ancient times,
they let the history float through them into our modern life
We're all the same under the sun
and it won't be long, and it won't be long
til every daughter every son
of this empire'll be gone
a relic that belongs
to the forgotten once
with a guardian in a lion
