What unknown face now breaks the silence?
What tipping force disturbs the balance?
Swift and sober, comes a voice, offering a bitter choice
Take up a crime and serve the sentence, offer up a final penance
Or dismantle colossus from deep inside, conspirators
And those allied

Gifts of bronze, iron, obsidian, from nave to chop
Plunged and hidden
Deep in the chests of those who cry, the songs of gods untrue

(The glowing eyes that burn like embers, fall painful on the skin
Seething with hatred, and writhing in pain, they cast a ghastly grin)

Like sulfur set to fire, blue flame is born
To rip through homes and cleanse the town
A new world rendered, an old world mourned

It draws closer with every step. (push off with both feet
Fall into the chasm, which will consume all)
March not to the drum, but off the beat. (push off with both feet
Fall into the chasm, which will consume all)

Burst into the evening, cool air burns the lungs
Fear not the turning heads, the darting glances, the lashing tongues

Turning heads, the darting glances, the lashing tongues
Glowing eyes that burn like embers

Fall painful on the skin
Glowing eyes, fall painful on the skin

Those glowing eyes, burn like embers, fall painful on the skin
Seething with hatred, they cast a ghastly grin
Yet among the faces shrouded in horror, one truth prevails
All who’ve ever come this far exclusively have failed

Reach for the hand whose grasp is firm
Whose blistered palms can confirm
A kinship in a spiteful place
With tender touch a warm embrace

Though nights turn long and cold, and the warmth of the day escapes
The long dark shadows growing old, form familiar shapes
