Olympus Is On FireMature

Like the sun, I keep on rising

Up and down, the endless life.

But security

Always reigns.

I never felt endangered in my life.

 

Looking ahead, I see a danger

Creeping nearer, ready to fight.

My demons out,

Death set loose,

Love holds a torch in her hand.

 

I am helpless to stop

The fire from coming

And taking away all I know.

All I can is watch

As she lowers her arm.

I plea to the skies.

 

My soul has finally ascended.

My body is left broken.

The heart I used to have

Is burning slowly now.

Olympus is on fire.

 

Soldiers wake, keep on storming.

Coming on, what shall I do?

Defend home,

Resurrect souls,

Coming out swinging from the dark.

 

Leave me be, these evil troubles

Persisting, always moving.

Go away,

Raise the flag,

One day I hope we’ll be free.

 

I stand beside those

Shocked to see the fire.

The fall has suddenly come.

All I can do is watch

As we drop the torch.

Are we all doomed?

 

My soul has finally ascended.

My body is left broken.

The heart I used to have

Is burning slowly now.

Olympus is on fire.

 

Where will you go

When you see Olympus on fire?

I am the one

To rise out from the crowd.

 

How will I go

And stop all the demons?

They came for me,

But soon they’ll look for you.

 

I look into the blaze

Terrified, yet in awe.

I look into the depths,

Trying to find evidence.

Was it me or as it you?

The torch has fallen down.

Someone must answer.

This crime will not go unnoticed.

 

The demons fight me

Were of my design.

But it was the whole world

That helped me piece the puzzle.

Now I break the pieces

So as to not leave a trail.

The fire will keep burning,

Burning to infinity.

 

Fire burn on,

Keep burning on.

With every cut,

I feel you coming nearer.

 

Burn down this house

That we built up.

With every cut,

I know who’s approaching.

 

All alone, I face my demons.

No matter what, I’m all in.

Do your worst,

Won’t back down,

Get ready for the fight of your life.

 

All I can do is watch

As she lowers her arm.

I please to the skies.

 

My soul has finally ascended.

My body is left broken.

The heart I used to have

Is burning slowly now.

Olympus is on fire.

 

Falling apart,

Down in flames.

Never to resurrect.

 

I can watch

But cannot stop.

Olympus is on fire.

The End
