lyrics

Cold dawn greets the toiling crew
In the heart of winter’s reign
A guard’s dagger close to the hand of one chained

Sudden violence, blood upon the path
Alarms piercing rang, the maelstrom swept through the barracks
As one by one sentries fell

Black smoke rising above the fortress walls
Frenzied slaves gather at the tower’s base
The Queen’s Guard emerge through the searing flames

High upon the tower she turned from the sight, ordering swift retribution
As the battle raged he crept through the doors, blade running red,
Ascending the stairs to her

In a darkened room she waited, sheltered
He tore into the entrance way, dragging the Queen down into the bloodshed below
Engulfed by the ravenous crowd
Her screams of terror rose above the cries of rebellion

The city burned brightly behind him, the blackened gates in ruin
From the harbor of the fallen Queen, setting sail upon the cold waves

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.
