Perpetual Passage Lyrics

2. Perpetual Passage (15:34)
That which resides in the roots of a dying tree
Clings to life, threatens to rot, destiny
Not from light, drowns from the ocean within
Inhales the stars, swallows the sea
Stars, exhaled, hang themselves over the weak
Crumbling earth closes in and nothing can leave
Shower of light, ashes returning to flame
Gathering of life yearning to remain

Legions of the wretched awaken
To drag the risen back toward the grave
Steel resolve will not be forsaken
Upholds the promise that was made
Approaching the void, twilight
Encroaching upon this sacred ground
The incantation resonates
The final oath resounds

Standing alone
The passage wide open
Spirit bound by flesh and bone
So easily broken
The crucible of being
The pinnacle of seeing
One dozen steps of stone

The chasm beckons
And the pendulum sways
The courage returns
And the pendulum stays

Consummate the portal
The sacred singularity

Reach the destination that has never been
Return to where it all began

Doomed and blessed to live and die again
