Prophecy of a Dying World Lyrics

1. Prophecy of a Dying World (6:14)
I spoke to horrors of a dying planet
Creatures of a drying sea
Nature was forever altered, warped by reality
A truth to me was then revealed, born on the wings of destiny

Decaying in my silent grave
I spoke to kings of heirless thrones
An oath to me there was sung
The prophecy of their bones

I saw by the light of a dying sun
A world drowned in blood

Descent into ancient crypts of purity unpolluted
Transformed to a point of light my essence reconstituted
I prepare to carry my burden, prophet of a dying world

Into the endless continuum
Fated servant to mankind
Born predestined to let sound
The herald of our doom

"And the empires will rise and grow mighty,
Engulfing all humanity in their tireless domination, erasing
The past and twisting the ancient tombs forgotten
Spirits will wither and die, and from the dust of these
Crypts there shall rise an entity born of vengeful winds,
And from his soul beings will spew forth, abominations
Of consciousness who will corrupt and weaken the world,
Twisting dreams into nightmares, creating new pain, a suffering
That will last forever, and curse our lives through all time..."

Apocalyptic visions invade, and the grave opens before me...

I ascend from eternal crypts my purity reinstated
Cleansed of my human faults
I accept the existence to which I am fated

Returned to my silent grave
Mute witness to our end
An oath it is that I now sing
The harmony of my suffering
I speak to those who shall forever be
Twisted spirits who refuse to die
Skeletons of forgotten kings
In swollen tombs of man they lie

I see by the light of a dying sun
A world drowning in blood...
