6. Those Whose Skin Was Gold (4:16)
I am a studier of fossils, rocks and sediments
And various items that have been deemed worthy of excavation
From deep earth and olden places where life once dwelled and now is holding (the) secrets to previous life on earth

Then on one night I did find a discovery that caused me to shout out loud for the nature of it was insane
Deep in the rock I was digging, something unexpected was there
I could not believe my eyes

There were shapes like limbs, arms, legs, giant in size and all made of an unknown type of stone
As I studied things further, I had another find
The rock was riddled with shimmering sections of gold
Suddenly I realized - I was looking at a mass grave - Of stone giants and the gold entwined, it appeared to be - their skin!

I was reeling with the gravity of this intense discovery; I had worked into the night
And my sleeping excavation team - I simply hadn't woken them, as I couldn't pull away

Just when I was calming down I heard a sound from the rock
It was loud, and the sound it was abrupt and abrasive maybe a creak?, or more a crack, like an implosion within the rock
Then a groan from deep below - it emanated loudly
And the ground began to shake, and this certainly and suddenly compelled me - Into moving back from the dig

And the ground shook - fear it took hold
(But) I could not move - I watched these "things"
All separate - and then stand up in the moonlight
But these giants of stone, those whose skin was gold
Now have been woken, their time to rule has...returned
