The story ends; it ends before it begins
The final hour of our golden age
A loss to all; we watch this citadel burn
Our potential to be something more

Left on our own, we will excel or we’ll fail
To reach our goals, will we take the pain?
We ascend beyond adversity, we'll rise again
To claim our…

Place beyond the stars
The gods have destroyed all we've built
Our sanctuary of knowledge
Your pages will burn throughout time
Embers left for all mankind

Stone laid to waste; a place of academia
Removed to crush our search for truth
This oppression will not define our end of days
We will rebuild and find ourselves within

Wipe the ashes from your face
Use these hands of cinder to make
A place in history to call your own
Defy your nature to save all you've learnt

Vae Victus Vouchsafe
Yield to the flames
Your kind will obey
