neath (the shadow of the monolith) lyrics – orpheus

citadels crumble now,
around you they fall,
beneath the shadow lurks civilization,
forgotten and old,
but there in the distance,
the monolith stands,
beneath it many have died,
and for it many did fall

once in time, it gave hope,
it gave a reason to believe,
across banners and shields
it was stretched for the battle ahead
a sign of belief unknown,
neath the shadow of the monolith,
to your knees did you fall, your blood did flow,
what have we now, when all hope is gone,
what have we now, when all hope is lost,

to the drones that slave away,
they live to serve and die the same,
a lie that breeds their truth,
will forever curse them all

many that cried false, were early put to death,
their cries of pain and torture undue,
as they take their last breath,

citadels crumble now,
around you they fall,
beneath the shadow lurks civilization,
forgotten and old,
to the drones that slave away,
they live to serve and die the same,
