lyrics

Led to the darkness
A deeper shadow in the night
An ignoble end in silence
Forgotten to all but the blade

In the midst of council the King sat on oaken throne
The riders swept into the hall, faces hidden in shadow
They released the warrior at the foot of the stairs
“We have found a conspirator against the throne”

“I have been watching the movements of the East
Ships were sighted in the northern seas
A shield bearing the Lion’s Mark was brought to me
Our northern fortress consumed in flames and the Queen has not sent word
One of my riders was found dead in the mountains
You are captured bearing his dagger

And now you are disguised before me
Reveal yourself and receive judgment.”

“I am the shield of iron, the mask of the beast, the fire of the dark
I am a general of the east, loyal to my emperor in life and in death.”

“Know that you will await him in the afterlife
From the abyss of death you will watch
As your empire crumbles before my legions
Convene the council of war. Lead this soldier to his doom.”

Led to the darkness
A deeper shadow in the night
An ignoble end in silence
Forgotten to all but the blade

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.
