    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
    Gathering together the treasures of
    their wisdom and culture
    The guardians constructed a vast c
    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
    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
    And storms raged over the barren wastelands
    of the once fertile plains of Atlantis
    And the sea cras
    hed 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...
