By This Marvel Overthrown Lyrics

7. By This Marvel Overthrown (7:24)
The forest retakes the ruins
Stone cities lie dead
Life's force flows again once more
As mountains break the cavities
Drilled within
Rivers flow once more with might
The forests grow over the ruins of roads
That led nowhere
In man's great folly
Rejoice! The old generation has died
Parasites cleansed
We, who have survived
Survived only by the grace
Of the Earth
The soil which has not betrayed
Those who have not broken faith with it
The cancelled eyes and darkened minds
Died in torrents of rain and thunder In plagues, in tremors of war
And of themselves
No gold, no electronic dreamworld illusions, no social status, no soulless machine
No ruler could ever have saved them from that
From their own corrupted spirit
Their carcasses littered the world
More useful dead, as life itself consumed them
They, who possessed no greater love for it
The wolves took them, and lovingly fed them to their pups
And the wolves grow strong
For every month, at night
They howl at the full moon, unafraid, and fearsome
And we, who have not only survived, but thrived
Stand, by this marvel overthrown
And we gather around the fire
As we stand in its entrancing smoke
We grow stronger, as the cycle returns to order
Oblivion our gate, we shall fly,
Towards the heavens, not above the earth, but within
To the boundaries that will not exist, when we get there
Come demons! Come angels!
Let those with fire burn bright and illuminate the earth!
I answer the beckoning flames even to charring the flesh
For fire shall be my law, the destroyer and creator, restorer
Away with ages past, pass away linearity, the journey is now the goal!
