Adamant to reach the summit
Through my wanderings I have found this place in my memory
A colossal formation of sentient design
A mammoth of building mastery
At its crown, inscribed with this disk of the sun
A solitary entrance standing tall
At its opening, only a flickering luminescence I observe
A portal, I theorise as I enter…

For aeons; injustice, over this ancient land
Archaic majesty, wisdom, honor …
All defiled by a wanting hand of evil… depravity

But the tide is turning, and the philosopher in me is silent no more
Against this tide I will rage war
A war of the non-dormant mind
Rekindling the ancient flames
A war for the sake of the minds that have been estranged
Vengeance… Callous

And as I wake up I realize, it is all but a memory
A vision by my subconscious wrath sent to me
A calling by the splendid primordial cosmic entities
Who in their hearts are aching and in their forms are trembling
Who the Anunnaki in their essence they wearily carry
And who’s in their enigma resides the coastal trinity

Vengeance calling me
Let on this monument be inscribed the rites of reclamation
And as it is through the forceful bows of Ashur
And as it is through the noble spears of Hadad
May these words upon thee descend as flaming tongues of fire
