lyrics

Falling upwards

Eye of beholding
Hand of controlling
Resurrecting lizard snake

Time of immortal
Traveling diety
lays the land to waste

Incredibly crushed
Under the weight
Of seven atmospheres

Welcome the one who
Cherished us all
Then told us what to do:

Build my monument
A tomb for you
Center of the centipede

Light of my life
An unwanted memory

Thrown through the borg-shaft
To a spinning chasm of death
Multiplied into a perfect disease

Always returning

Hypnotized in the shadow of the sky ladder
Mortified by its dawning rays
Whatever I've seen is soon to be forgotten
Writing down the first thing that comes to mind
before I'm eliminated

Welcome
To the
Terror
Terror-sphere

Look in the eyes
and see of the wolf
Urinating in its place
Look in the eyes and see of the owl
Spinning head and killing rat
Look in the eyes and see of your flesh
Melting into nothingness
Returning to the birth of all matter

Look in the eyes and see of the field rat
running from the owl
Look in the eyes
and see of the horns glaring back at you
Look in the eyes and see of the worm
Scowling in its dirt
Missing all the pieces that made us once whole

Always running

We have lived
More than most
Hope is a lie
Only truth is you

Touch her hair
Stroke her breast
Cut her neck
Join the dead

See the light
Turn your back
Endure the heat
Follow your beat

Land on planetoid's surface
Rise as sun beams blue rays
Vastness of space opens
A black hole for feelings

Block your thoughts and follow
Into heart of darkness
We can create new world
We are filled with power

Always

Returning to earth
Feeling those pains again
Pounding fist on mirror
Hell spectre surrounds my head
Ghost white horror
Vertical light is all that's left of heaven

Took an oath to protect and serve
Delivered justice though I was no saint
Killed my brother in cold blood and hid his body
Under the bridge where we played

No more miracles, this is insane, hang me up to dry

All

Welcome
To the
Terror
Terror-sphere
