about

The theme of this song pertains to the many historical and modern attempts to centralize power and dominate mankind through utopian promises and political saviors. We see this theme in many of our favorite fantasy stories such as Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia. We know how those stories end. This song also brings a ray of hope too.

lyrics

Utopia, millennia
The golden promise old as time
Voices of this glorious decadence
Dancing through flames to align

Words of warning, and premonition
Blackened skies clothe the citadel
Fate of judgment, slow-burning anger
No longer dormant lies the perfect spell

Behold! Your Arcadia
Eden’s stadium
Hell’s Colosseum
In Arcadia

Aroma of reason, burning now
Tears of tyranny stream like rain
A paradise of peace, long forgotten now
Wisdom lost, what will remain?

Behold! Your Arcadia
Eden’s stadium
Hell’s Colosseum
In Arcadia

We shall rebuild
One stone at a time
The rock will become
A mountain tonight
A shining, golden
Citadel, upon a hill
No empire
Shall overcome
Dreams never to be
Forgotten

Behold! Your Arcadia
Eden’s stadium
Hell’s Colosseum
In Arcadia
