Mankind in concrete buried
Enslavement underground
For centuries forgotten

Terra's surface healed
The war’s expired past
Resurrected, thriving fields
The fruit of greed aghast

The penultimate truth… A lie!

Despotic victors reign supreme
To keep synthetic dreams… alive
A murderous regime to guarantee
Ersatz equality for all... to survive

[Solo: von Moller]

Subterrestrial masses fed by demagogues above
With tales of deadly gases
Nothing left of the world beloved
Isolated lands, forsaken cities
In the gaze of palaces and covetous committees

Now rise, now rise! Let the sun blind your eyes
Escape from your caskets and cells
Gamble your lives, unveil their crooked disguise
Revolt! Arise! Arise!

Bring us the heads of their prophets
Serve us their spirits in tatters

The ultimate deceit
Their banishment complete
To vengeance and to terror
The price of human error

Bring us the heads of their prophets
Settle our debts with their blood
