lyrics

“In battles of the east we’ve earned our names
Victorious their towers wreathed in flames
The walls of the world will bear the lion’s mark
Empires rise and fall to dust with the passing of our march

We are the golden horde, the shield of iron, mask of the beast, ride far
Who led by him, stalk the plains
Engulfed in the fire of the dark

We go beyond my brothers, far beyond
But I promise you that soon we shall return
From deep horizons to seas unknown
Our enemies of the dark
So set your scarlet sails a flight with hatred in your hearts
Like the arrow from emerald bow
We will strike them from this world
And the tyrants will fear our names.”

And with brave words the ship set sail carving through the silver bays
Beneath the wheeling gulls and cormorants that day
Following the northern star, where ice like dragons teeth
Had long guarded the ancient strongholds of the enemy

Bound to the mast, a sailor, a traitor, will guide
But on each shuddering night the shadows returned as he closed his eyes
Their lives were only his to lose, his lantern was their comfort in the night.

“We go beyond my brothers, far beyond
But I promise you that soon we shall return
From deep horizons to seas unknown
Our enemies of the dark
So set you scarlet sails a flight with hatred in your hearts
Like the arrow from emerald bow
We will strike them from this world
And the tyrants will fear our names.”

about

Lyceum California

Lyceum was founded in early 2010 by the former members of three Bay Area metal bands. The songs written since the 2010 demo have followed a single narrative written by the band.
The name Lyceum refers to the academy of Aristotle, the teacher of Alexander the Great, dedicated to Apollo Lyceus, pivotal in the history of western aesthetics, education, and philosophy.
