Celestial Effigy Lyrics

5. Celestial Effigy (6:59)
"My allegiance is with the inner self
The dark celestial voice of wisdom
Beyond the dust that is this world"

There is a voice adrift in the starless
and marble black dark space
A voice of wisdom and purity
Beyond the vestiges of sanity
There is a voice deep in the darkest places
calling...haunting me...
Where no light bears a shadow
Where no time escapes unhallowed

I am compelled to dissolve
into the eternal unknown eidolon
A voice that leads to a world beyond
a mere mortal's most profound dreams
Yet I know...
There is no turning back from here
There is no place for the undeserved
Gone are the relics!

"Teach me your ways
Of hatred, unlight, and death
I offer myself to your wisdom
My allegiance is with the elite!"

There is a voice adrift in the darkness
calling...calling me...
A whisper of wisdom and purity
Beyond the vestiges of sanity
There is a voice deep in the starless
and marble black dark space
Where no light draws a shadow
Where no time escapes unhallowed

"An effigy; a gift from another kind"

In the glow of a distant aurora light
No dreams shall take form
Gifts dwell in the depths of
things unspoken
this night...
