about

Epic sci-fi apocalypse.

lyrics

Rising, absorbing, they harvest the galaxy
Behind great walls of ancient technology
Left us the future, survived at greater risk
Rethinking faith now, we worshipped an obelisk

Dawn! Purged Life ‘O cosmic one
Enter The Atmos – phere

Go mammoth one

Ripping our souls out we join with the mothership
Resistance surging, forget that we wanted this
They birth new gods, replacing species
Out of our bodies, creating divinity

Dawn! Purged Life ‘O cosmic one
Enter The Atmos – phere

A billion eyes looking of races collective
I now despise this pale white Earth

“Becoming plasma, at high speed,
they enter the living sun.
Flying towards it, absorbed in its shell.
Corona exposes, the cycle has begun.”

Lasting testament – to a dead breed
Religion honed – we have joined the seed

“Surrounding aurora encases this planet
Erasing all those who were left
No dirt, no plants, no lifeforms existent.
Silver encases their bodies.
Hair, sex, and race devoid.
Internal workings revealed.
Mechanical perfection – materialized
The blue sun releases two points of light.”

Reorganizing tissue with divine precision
By the visiting gods, consciousness is given

Evolved, honed, of helium and fission
Messiah, incarnate, are grown

Passing the eons on a globe near a distant star
Two tall, pale beings stand with extended arms
Wiser and stronger with knowledge of all species
They are the new Gods of The Galaxy
