Crossing the Rubicon Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. 2022 (Intro) (1:59)
2. Godforsaken (4:39)
soothsayers predict a holocaust
corrupt politicians, defend this way of living
whatever the loss - at any cost

where did we go wrong?
we crossed the finishing line
and burnt our sinking ships
has god forsaken us?

multinational corporate greed
feed on the poor and the weak
no matter what race or creed
the future looks depressingly bleak
once a privileged race
now living on borrowed time
sins of our fathers, catching up
breathing down our necks

we pray for salvation
in this world of mutilation
man's fate - termination
in this world of deprivation (mutilation - dehumanization)

we've been digging our own massgrave
for god knows how many centuries
killing our own flesh an blood
spreading disease, killing the trees
third stone form the sun
suffering from ignorant neglect
our home - mother earth
mankind refused to show respect

we never expected the end
to be from heaven sent
it was death from above
that struck down with evil intent
gotterd”mmerung - twilight of the gods
as the world slowly stops to turn
"sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow"
what did we gain, what did we learn?
3. The Juggernaut Divine (5:18)
a final sign the sky is falling down
this world has come undone
armageddon has arrived
in the shape of a killing machine

destroying you
pulling you under its wheels
crushing you

a sadistic instrument of pain
to hunt down our race like animals

invincible - eraser of life - truly evil
the juggernaut divine

a warcry killing the unborn
suffocating heat and the stench of
burning human meat
our culture now destroyed forever

as the war machine keeps turning
the flames of hate - still burning
4. Astral Adventure (4:59)
climb into the shuttle, there is no time to waste!
this is the last you will see of your family and home
the demigods have taken their lives, taken control
from now on we are renegades, destined to roam

we are blessed th chosen few
survivors of the holocaust
men, women and children work as crew
unite together we must

what lies ahead of us is a mystery
we all hail the new horizon
a future paradise in another galaxy
try to fill this myopic void

as we travel through the infinity of space
i lie down to rest and my mind wanders
will we ever find another friendly race?
i stare into the blackness outside... i wonder...

we will make our own destiny
create our own future
there are no boundaries
we are truly free
5. Funeral In Space (3:01)
6. Asteroid Dominion (4:38)
we are all in a state of mourning
grieving the ones who did not survive
we perform a ceremony for dead
as their caskets float away into space
but we know we've got to keep going
pushing forward into dark universe
on a mission to rescue our race
secure the future of our kind

asteroid dominion
the star or our fantasies and dreams
asteroid dominion
shining so bright
asteroid dominion

evrything is a circle constantly moving ahead
somewhere out there we will find our own utopia
a new for future generations
legends in our own lifetime
a fresh start without degeneration
a brave new world

unto a land flowing with milk and honey
beyond the known universe
in a hidden galaxy, a sacred sanctum for you and me
i'm praying for a peaceful existence
as unlikely as that may seem
tell me what good is man... without his dreams?
7. Galaxies Away (3:49)
8. Faithless (2:11)
i put my trust in technology
now i'm doubting we will ever reach our goal
all ambition is now finally lost
i'm no longer prepared to pay the cost
every dream, hope anticipation
that we used to share
was it all for nothing
were we fools to believe?

faceless - enter the dead zone
faithless - in the red zone
9. Children of the New Sun (2:45)
10. Into the Sun (4:33)
i am the sole survivor of this illfated mission
all the others are since long dead and gone
we had dreams, we had visions
nothing left now but one crude decision
inhuman temperature slowly rising
gasping for air, all supplies are wasted
we turned the last pages of history
our fate shall be shrouded in mustery

shall we truly be no more?
it is hard to comprehend
yet i fear it to be true
beyond all hope, it is over
there is no point in going on
(where did we go wrong?)
an optic illusion
children of another dimension
the stars shine so painfully bright
on this, our last fatal night

crossing the rubicon
into the sun...
am i the chosen one?
into the sun...

we were the blessed, the chosen few
survivors of the holocaust
we had the confidence of youth to pull through
now i'm so much older and feeling lost
i steer this ship into the sun
the flesh of our bodies melt into one
what once was our vessel
now a burning rock, our epitaph... our final requiem
