lyrics

The world beholden
A harvest to reap
The blood of mortals is sweet, but stolen water is sweeter
Centuries bear testament to names timeless
Monolithic
Grandiose
Ceaseless

Wise beyond understanding
Understanding beyond knowing
Knowing beyond the unseen
Into the depths of time itself
Beauty without description
Words fail to describe what cannot be comprehended

Of knowledge gained from time immemorial
Through progress serpentine, history repeats
Its coils spiral onward, and millennia move ever forward
Recursive in its nature to yield promises divine
But there still lacks a way to give foresight to the blind
Bringer of light, will you shine forth radiance
Teach us things kept secret since before our kind
Son of the dawn, O beauteous majesty
The morning star has never shone so brightly

Will we not die
Will you grant us our desires
Will you outlast the age
Will your promises be eternal
Will you save us from death
Will you be our saving grace
Will you open our eyes to see the truth
Can you cast out darkness and turn night to day
Can you be truth in a world of chaos
Can you show us we are loved
Can you show us the way
Can you take the pain away
Are we those whom you call beloved
Are we those whom you treasure
Through you may we find eternal life
Are you willing to save the least of these
Are you willing to live for those who detest you
Are you willing to die for those who put you to death
…And then the scales fell from my eyes
