Desolate and Forsaken
Eerily Moaning Dark Winds
Murmur Incantations
Dusk Calls forth Shadows
Spirits of the Glorious Dead Lingering
Bound to this Place
They Whisper of Untold Sagas
of Long Dead Cities
the Seven Shining Cities Sacred to the Aphkhallu
of Ages Past when the World was Young
When Babylon was Blessed of Marduk
and the Sound of her Armies was the Blare
of Ominous War Horns
and the Clash of Immortal Cybals
of Bronze Gates Arrayed in Splendour
and Magnificent Walls of Sunbaked Brick
of Temples of Marble
and Bloodstained Altars
Long Before the Jeweled Throne of Ur
Fell Silent and Turned to Dust
Beneath the Endless Shifting Sands
and the Inevitable Vengence of the Elements

    General CommentThis is about how nothing last forever, everyone dies and all man's acheivements eventually fall in the face of the elements....or something like that.
    Its also descibed with this old saying: "Nothing last forever but the Earth and Sky".
