lyrics

How can we describe this
An ageless being of an ocean deep
It brings the voice of
Peril and distress
And leaves us frozen
Without strength and wits
or fear of treason

One eye open
Thousands shut
Locked in unholy
Machination

Stone hearts flaking
Into dust
A lack of faith
Burns in Distrust

What they've seen
Was only left
To be the work
Of Gods

Now make haste
We're standing in
A footprint
Half a mile wide

Endless cycles
Bring creatures from
Another space
Shoot them down
And break their skulls
Bring back a head
or lay yours down

Resist the time
Where your life
Will be absorbed
Its the size of
A whole world
Survival seems obsurd

One eye open
Thousands shut
Locked in unholy
Machination

Stone hearts flaking
Into dust
A lack of faith
Burns in Distrust

What they've seen
Was only left
To be the work
Of Gods

Now make haste
We're standing in
A footprint
Half a mile wide

Any day with
Crashing waves
Lurching on a
Black horizon

For all humanity
brings black
Rain and
A tooth of poison

Any day with
Crashing waves
Lurching on a
Black horizon

For all humanity
brings black
Rain and
A tooth of poison
