Ancient battlefield for woman and man
Destroyed battleship carcass forms the land

False star
Black moon

Dead star
Dark moon

The screeching sounds of dismemberment
Conversion into clay
The smoke-filled sky lights up and solidifies
Into noxious mass

The derelict spaceport
Forgotten by time
The negative space
Conquered in neutron blast

Belligerent cyborg
Given to a task
Expected to comply
But never to ask back

Heinous judges
Produce a sentence
Hideous dogs
carry out the sequence

Sordid dust surrounds the toxic husk
Bodies converted into energy-waste
Now a tomb for the young nihilists
Come to celebrate destruction

Once the light of generations
Now a tomb of devastation

Sorrow-clouds eek up mile-high chimneys
Infecting misguided visitors
Causing suicide

Deep in its core
The dark judges wait
Engineering Sol's destruction
Held in neuro-sympathetic-symbiosis

Aided via theta waves
By the most powerful computer ever built
Before they were outlawed

Find a way to undo their mistake
Pay the penance for their crime
Death trap
Dead star
Misguided youth
Dark judges
False light
Take the night away

The instrument pierces soundless void
As all chimneys fire in synchronous
Dead bodies eject and the star
Lights a last time
False light – judge's plan

Atomic collisions and twisted circuitry
Many thousand miles of exposed steel

Black moon is pulled from orbit
Tension builds as it pushes through Sol's gravitonic belt
The guiltless moon that gave balance brings destruction
Violent windstorm cuts off my sight-sensors

And in the eternity of time I'll find a meaning
And as the old ones go blind I'll see again
As the oceans turn red and the sky turns black
And as the illusion unwinds I'll lead instead into the new universe


from Harbinger I: No Children In Heaven, released November 15, 2013
