Lyrics:Domes of crystal, spires of light reach out
Symbols of attainment once aspired
A quest for
knowledge fuelled by love of peace
People never burned by fired of war

The people of
the East
Grew tired of peace
Now mistrust and fear
Are new to us
here

Storm clouds gather
Mistrust turns to hate
A confrontation none could
forsee
Machines of peace melt down for tools of war
One thousand years of peace
destroyed

The people of the West
Though war they detest
Had nowhere to
run
So the killing began

Three score and four years
Battle raged on
high
Once proud and mighty
Prepare now to die
Destroyed by corruption
Pretention
and greed
Atlantean achievements
Dispersed as dry seeds
Blown by the winds of
change

Long fell the shadows
Across their land now bare
In ruins lay the
towers
That crowned an island fair
Laid low in death throes
A race once true and
right
Their power now their ruin
Their downfall their might

Narrator: Gathering
together the treasures of
their wisdom and culture
The guardians constructed a vast
computer
Protected by an awesome and terrible device
Shrouded in a silicate
crystalline dome.

The Sentinel
The ultimate keeper of the Peace
Too late to
save their own
Put there to guide a future race

Survivor: By my own hand, and the
hands of others,
A nation on its knees
No brothers, sisters, friends,
lovers,
No mountains, rivers, trees
Forgive us for we know not what we have
done

Narrator: And storms raged over the barren wastelands
of the once fertile
plains of Atlantis
And the sea crashed upon the shores
And the land crumbled upon
itself
The vast dome, the only remaining structure
on the dying continent, shuddered
and sank
slowly to the depths of the ocean...
