Flames Will Rise

They have been sleeping for countless years.
They live to teach they live to educate
Through the attentive doors come the mad men.
To throw their knowledge into the fiery den,
For centuries they have educated the masses
Now the new order rises to destroy them with their vices
They toss them on mountains of their kind.
They bring wood and oil to destroy their bind.
As the tyrants look at the sky.
They see their own demise.
