lyrics

[Solo: von Moller]

Blazing, spiralling smoke
Turrets pierce the sky
Into naught they were dissolved
Beyond the needle’s eye
Falling remnants cut the earth
A mocking farewell
Choking grip of circumstance
None to sound the brazen knell

Hurled thus into the void
The foulest order of man
Those prospered few by cosmic justice
Stripped of this authority
How do we proceed?

Now climb through the scorching mist
False truths in dying embers lie
Their histories, their travesties
Leave no page unburned!

A globing sphere
Unique, now free of purpose
Gazes drop in loss as their exodus fails
Castaways with no redeemers
Captives of this toxic rock
To extinction by its masters condemned... was our flock

Transform we shall this hell
In their image it was wrought
From depths of doom to greater days
Terra shall be brought
We acclaim their curtain call
And applaud this timely leave
Inheritors are we!

[Solo: Vrath]

From their desertion reborn is our spirit
Freed of phantom chains
Slain lies Mammon at Mercury’s flank
Their poison tongues are cut
The words are ground to dust

Samarithropia! Our nouveau utopia
In screaming terror shine in this new-born dystopia

Great usurper! Salute the slaves!
False truths in flames they dance
Our histories, our travesties
Leave no word unwritten…

[Solo: Iron]
