Dormancy, vacancy of the mind
Misplaced trust, I'm not your savior
I look like Armageddon, feel like death inside
Becoming one with the death of it all

...That you're okay
That you are sane
In the crystal brain
Controlling the younglings
Mind of the whole
Sends out a signal in vain

to its many limbs
Crystalline flesh of the time lords
quenching their ever-thirst
Miracle of the unborn

Mezzanine overlooks
An audience
of hired con-men

Their evil hooks
Into my veins as I am changed
Into a warlord
Become the thing I hated

Terrorizing Krom-la
Resurrecting memories of once-loved
I am a sentient being of the overlords making

Living with the guilt of a precipice once reached
I ascend Amun-ra to the G.O.D satellite

To a higher form
Of intelligence
Navigate the storm of bending light
Message for the one who creates Earth again

I am the one
I am the one

We seek the one who wields the wilderness
Who takes the wild and makes it tame
Who treks the Earth in search of all that's worthy of understanding
Worthy of learning all its mystical secrets

I'm of another world
I've lost my way and landed in this hell
I've lost my home and there's no turning back


from In Shadow Of The Sky Ladder, released June 18, 2013
