  • Sacrifices buried with kings
    Accompany them on a journey with no end
    To an afterlife that's rich with fruit of all the gods
    And to face the demons
    Of their underworld haunts

    The sentient is sent to seek out all the truth
    A flight to earth that is a given from his birth
    To rise from ashes of the dead
    Out of the fire is sent to full fill man's desire

    The power day and night and death he ruled them
    The sky and earth and the fires too
    Two headed reptile symbol of his reign
    Universes of the underworld

    A life that's full of all the wealth and riches
    Can never last for an eternity
    After living in a golden paradise
    The ultimate sacrifice

    Prophecy of sky gods, the sun and moon
    Passing of old ways will come true soon

    Falling of ages, forest of kings
    The search for the truth, the book of souls

    The rulers of planets and stars
    The power of the kings of traders and the wars
    Planetary cycles and the phases of the moon
    Is in the document a kingdom they will learn

    They were praying to the gods of nature
    And were living in the cities of stone
    Towers reaching upward to the heavens
    Sacred wonders for the world unknown

    Make their lives be a mystery no more
    Records kept and the passing of laws
    Sacred gods to the book of lies
    When a civilization dies

    Prophecy of sky gods
    The sun and moon
    Passing of old ways will come true soon

    Falling of ages
    Forest of kings
    The lost book of souls, destruction begins

    Ascending the throne wearing feathers and shells
    He brought back their lives from the void
    Alien invasion brings nothing but death
    Mass exodus and plant life destroyed

    Domain of the earth to the journey of truth
    The underworld caves mayan slaves

    Defeat of the dark lords
    The ultimate proof
    In the place where the ancestors rule
