The song Lapis sang when the Danathaar demanded her to report on her abscence during which she returned to the place she grew up and found both the place in ruins, and a new convicion in Kathia and the Siblings.

---------------------------------------------------------

Hearing I ask ~ from the brother and sister,
From the Siblings chidren, ~ both high and low;
Thou wilt, danathaar, ~ that well I relate
The sights I remember ~ of travels far away.

I remember yet ~ the snakes of yore,
Who gave me bread ~ in the days gone by;
Temples I knew, ~ the ones in the south
With mighty pillars ~ beneath the sky.

I went to find ~ where once I lived;
No palms nor cool water ~ nor shade there were;
Where orchards had been ~ and walls did stand,
But blackened walls ~ and grass nowhere.

Then from the ruin ~ did I went forth,
From the home of the priests, ~ the mighty and cruel;
An empty vessel ~ searching blindly,
Lapis of Stygia, ~ empty of might.

The scorpion stung ~ my shoeless feet,
The sun as a furnace, ~ it baked my skin;
Soul I had not, ~ sense I had not,
My eyes dried out ~ yet still I saw,

The New Dawn lifted ~ the temple and walls,
Kathia mighty ~ there we made;
The sun from the south ~ warmed the stones of earth,
And green was the ground ~ with growing leeks.

Old is the earth ~ where all things go
that which is forgotten ~ Damaks domain
Beneath bones of the World ~ all Gods must Lie
In Kathia grows ~ Dawn of life from their rot

Then from the sands ~ did I went forth,
From the home of the snakes, ~ the mighty and cruel;
An empty vessel no more ~ who had found what I sought,
Lapis of Kathia, ~ joyous slave of the World.
