The Descent Lyrics

8. The Descent (4:46)
The air in the cavern, still as a grave
As I exhale, I watch my breath turn to fog.
The planet is rich, with rare creatures and ore
For which I am forced to bring home.

Yet deep in the void, I can hear it:
A stirring within the bowels of the cave
My captors step forward, exploring.
"Go on ahead", they say with a sneer.

What little light still around us,
Now gone in an instant of time.
We turn to see what confronts us:
An ocean of hungry eyes.

Suddenly the ground opens up.
Massive insects escape from the wound.
The only hope for survival
Now lies in the heart of this tomb.

Turning on my heel
I lurch towards the dark.
Fear envelops my soul.
I hear screams of pain as my captors' limbs break.
And their flesh is torn from their bones.

I cannot see
Running endlessly
God please let me be alive.

Then light caresses my eyes.
Just before they did close.
My lungs ache as I run out of this hell.

I burst outside the entrance.
Blindness, for a moment, takes hold.
When it clears, I do not believe my eyes.

A mountain lays before me.
Winding stairs join the foot to the sky.
At the crest was the temple.
At the entrance: a man.
Standing ablaze with light.
