​Torn Banners

This song is by Artaius and appears on the album Torn Banners (2015).

Foundations, built on human pride,
Corrupted by this sense of failure.
Walls, once high as honour,
Enslaved by poisonous ivy,
Stone idols are smothered.

Through the seasons change,
We watch our towers ruining.
Through the seasons change,
We watch our bridges burning.
What have we become?

Heroes are falling as oceans arise,
Tear down the banners and taste the nothingness.
Heroes are falling as time conquers all,
Tear down the walls, the waves come crashing them down.

A grey sky overwhelms our glory,
Last breath of our human mankind
Enlightened by unnamed stars.
Words, once set in stone, are forgotten
Beholding our hearts.

Our glory is fading,
While the stars are grieving.
When did it all become so meaningless?

Heroes are falling as oceans arise,
Tear down the banners and taste the nothingness.
Heroes are falling as time conquers all,
Tear down the walls, the waves come crashing them down.

Heroes are falling as oceans arise,
Tear down the banners and taste the nothingness.
Heroes are falling as time conquers all,
Tear down the walls, the waves come crashing them down.

Burn all your hope, burn all your pride,
Our heroes are dead.
Burn all your hope, burn all your pride,
Our idols are wrecked.
Choke all your hope, choke all your pride,
Our flags are burnt down.
Choke all your hope, choke all your pride,
Our banners are torn.
