The city that pride built
And brought to ruin.
Vaunted towers made of crystal,
Carved in gold and vanity,
Wrought from the suffering of her enemies,
The darkness in men’s hearts,
Such hatred from adversaries,
That summoned silent deities,
To take their revenge
Upon these callous fools,
Who had dared to spit upon the sea
And call it theirs.
To ride the ocean in their silver ships,
Claim the waves as their own,
Whilst their enemies wept
Tears, that were answered,
by angry gods.
The sea-lord would take this island
Back under the waves,
Mortal arrogance had struck him too many times.
This city of devils
Would be his claim.
Though they say they live, still,
Under the waves,
Ruled over by the sea king
To atone for their sin.
