What Evil Lay Dorment Lyrics

9. What Evil Lay Dorment (7:30)
Covered in red, before my eyes betrayed to see
Another terror, death laden mirage
Of feigned sanctity
A heaven defunct now held by flame
Torn to pieces, in ruin, the heavens gate

War devours, this ravaged land
Decimated by secret plans
Apocalyptic scenes occur
While flames erupt from below

Deploring this human depravity
Fading hope in future years
We watch the towers crumble
As dust consumes us all

Ideals of old held hope for some
But mankind’s nature surfaced
What evil lay dormant
Forgotten, banished for centuries
Suppressed by radical psychology

Forced into a corner
With nothing but our minds
Reaching out to no one
Blindly stumbling on
Lifeless, consumed
A future bleak a time foretells
Ageless empires raised to ash
As dust consumes us all

The last of us, engraved into the stone
Left behind our fortunes
Now build with sticks and stones

Staring into a void of silence
The unknown awaits our end
Ascending towards the horizon
Trusting that we’ll create again
We gaze into the fire, but nothing there to see
For all we see is the darkness, of our humanity

The opportunity to start again
Is only a day away
The heavens above have foretold
A new beginning for us all

Devoid of silence
This sea of naught
Mankind’s empires crumble
Agelessness undone
The last of us engraved into the stone
Left behind our fortunes
Now leave behind this world

Staring into a void of silence
The unknown awaits our end
Ascending towards the horizon
Trusting that we’ll create again
We gaze into the fire, but nothing there to see
For all we see is the darkness, of our humanity

Abandon our inheritance
And descend to the unknown

Watch the fire
Consume all
Embrace death
