Legend of Lemuria

Many have heard of a lost continent in the Atlantic
But there are some who believe there was one in the Pacific

Grab hold of time’s clock and switch it back 85 thousand years
Peer through history’s mist, legendary Lemuria appears

Their ancestry is thought to be Asian or Polynesian
Did this evolved culture build the stone heads on Easter Island

If they existed and how they vanished, we can't know for sure
For any artifacts are now lying on the ocean floor

Hostile natives of Atlantis have been blamed for their demise
It’s said religious Lemurians were attacked by surprise

A lesson can be learned, however, as history repeats
Many peaceful cultures have succumbed to militants’ defeats

Those who have spiritual inclinations don’t make weapons
And the death toll continues to rise well into the millions

Men who seek power are always seeking to control our Earth
But on Judgment Day our Lord will decide who has the most worth

    Fascinating stuff, Diane. I hope they'll find proof of Lemuria and Atlantis some day.
