I am not immortal
I am just a man
A power-craving tyrant
Beyond the shadows in the sand

Men have come to fear me
Many bow and cry
Known across the desert
I am the one who will not die

I have faced the demons
Of our most desperate moments
I have been the one to defend our pride
I have worn the banner
Of my abandoned brothers
I will be the first to give my life

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Spirit as black as coal
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul

An epic novel no one's read
Pages torn and faded
The greatest story never told

Behold the kingdom I possess
Land of wealth and beauty
Where the streets are paved with gold

Once fearless and brave
A realm passed away
The ghosts of yesterday

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Spirit as black as coal
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul

Lost, not forgotten
Reigning against the odds
Feared and respected
Living among the gods
Leading the empire
Brutal and heartless
Vanishing further
Into the darkness
Lost, not forgotten
King of the deathless soul
