Climbing walls covered in vines
A spider bites my hand
Spilling nova light over tranquil sea
This was meant to be

Ore of the eagle sits upon my back
I climb the tower where she waits atop
Last of humanity’s creations
The only place free from radiation
I survived digging underground
My hands grew tough and callused
Skin dried up living off of rations
I hope I'm still in fashion baby

Planetoid's Dying
Planetoid's Dying

Raped and left to die

Made to vanish her home

In forgotten tongues

Worthless unless it's heard

Foraging upon the earth
In search of her delights
Pleasing all her waking needs
Has become his life
Savior of the human race
He's its protector
But time is moving far to slow
He takes her life into his hands

Mixing magic potion with blood
He links his soul to hers
Without her guardian she
Will die a lonely death
Making sure to hide the brew
He tucks it in his sash
Climbing up the tower for last
He finds her sleeping so beautiful

Taking in the potion with mouth
He gives her death's kiss
Watching as she swallows the juice
He takes another sip
Today we die together
He won't live alone
But her body is not of Earth
The poison is ejected out her body
The enigma lives on

Fall asleep my
Dear little girl
While I Wake you up
While I Wake you up

The enigma lives on

Planetoid’s dying as the sun explodes
It's a galactic fate of no fault our own
But man left a key to it's forbidden secrets
Atop the tower Rapunzul sits

Underneath stars, our brothers gaze
Upon our blue world caught in a daze
Rapunzul speaks of a new found home
Their spirits are sent to a virtual world
Within her mainframe are thousands of minds
Under her control until it's time
I ask her a question with my dying breath:
Why'd you have to go and make me your bitch?
