Blood spilled upon the sands of time, the years passing by take their toll
Atrocities of ages gone, their tales forgotten and old
Another wicked tyrant reigns in terror, another city falls
Through thousands of years and millions of deaths we learn nothing changes at all

Lost from memory
Abandoned... by time
Through ages of depravity
Abandoned... by time

Though we thought the time was done when man preys on man like beast
Man is just an animal, its hunt for power will never cease
The ones who rule use you as a tool to meet their ends
Their hunger never sated,
their bloodlust infinite

Lost from memory
Abandoned... by time
A dark age of brutality
Abandoned... by time

Look at all the horrors
Across the centuries
Volcanic explosion
Brings kingdoms to their knees

Left a smoking ruin
Smoldering decay
Buried beneath the ashes
Lies shattered remains

It all passes by, beyond your control your control
The march of time keeps pressing on, devoid of any soul
Witness your mortal life fade into the pass
As all you have known and all you have loved disintegrate into ash

Into ash!

Can't find a solution for your harrowing distress
Impermanence of all you see renders it meaningless
Those in your life one by one passing on
Who will speak of them when a thousand years are gone...

NONE!
Abandoned... by time
