Our empire has fallen
The columns came crashing down
Faster than children could outrun the shadows drunk with hysteria
The survivors are running for their lives
As precious dreams erupt before their very eyes

Tonight, its over, at long last we will fall
Ruins will fight in our stead

My flesh is burning from the embers
But still the brilliant tale of our utopia
Survives tonight her beautiful exterior may crash and burn
To ash but the fight for her honor will rage on
I hope I never see the end I hope
I never have to live without her comfort but for now she dies
Oh Rome! so full of majesty, you're gone

Wind chokes on the ashes as acrid smoke strangles the sun
Their jealous arrows rain,
Hollow drums pound at the gates breaking the din of screams
Our feeble offerings to forgotten Gods are left to rot in temples of their lust
As they lay forth their plans to destroy our pride, our home

Tonight, its over, at long last we will fall
Ruins will fight in our stead

My flesh is burning from the embers
But still the brilliant tale of our utopia
Survives tonight her beautiful exterior may crash and burn
To ash but the fight for her honor will rage on
I hope I never see the end I hope
I never have to live without her comfort but for now she dies
Oh Rome! so full of majesty, you're gone

Beg the flames for our mercy

These aged walls have seen too much
To forget the past in the face of this final trial
Watch her crumble so true as mayhem cuts her down let them have our treasure,
Her voice lives on let them take our city for her splendor lives on

At long last we will fall
