Face the Sea Lyrics

2. Face the Sea (20:50)
Ancient, land, remote, devoid of all life
Mankind, oblivion, spiral, out of control
Hewn, in stone, idols, with empty eyes
Violence and bloodshed, bludgeon and murder
Kneel before the gods, servitudes curse
Rival factions rise, clan against clan
Monolithic gaze, ancestors carved in stone
Rivers of blood, flood across the land
Kneeling down to pray, bow before the sea
Islands can't sustain, rape and ruin rife
The last body falls, no more life

Legions, face the sea
Despair, bow and kneel
Monument, blood and sweat
Worship, face the sea
Legions, face the sea
Despair, bow and kneel
Monument, blood and sweat
Worship, face the sea

Blackened, face the sea
Faces, bow and kneel
Looking, blood and sweat
Skyward, face the sea
Blackened, face the sea
Faces, bow and kneel
Looking, blood and sweat
Skyward, face the sea

Dies
The watcher
Who watched over
The islanders
All disembowelled
The fire is out, the destroyer
The end is now

Burning, drowning
Oblivion, beckons
Sinking, deeper
Chaos, the abyss

Tangata, Manu the winner, cult the birdman
Ivi, Attaus, his dream, swim to Motu Nui
Drowning, swallowed, engulfed,
By the faceless sea
First across the ocean, ascent of Rano Kao
Holds aloft the egg, blazing signal fire
Ultimate power, east and western clans
Arise the new victor, Tangata Manu
Depletion, war, collapse,
Old makes way for new, the past drifts away
Floating in an endless sea

Priests, face the sea
Chanting, bow and kneel
Praying, blood and sweat
Worship, face the sea
Priests, face the sea
Chanting, bow and kneel
Praying, blood and sweat
Worship, face the sea

Birdman, face the sea
Swimming, bow and kneel
Infested, blood and sweat
Waters, face the sea
Birdman, face the sea
Climbing, bow and kneel
Cliff top, blood and sweat
The victor, face the sea

Vanguisher, mortal,
Rano Kao, conquered
Oceans vast, standing stones,
Ivory eyes, Tangata Manu

Desolate, barren waste,
Priests chanting, sea holds their fate
Omnipotence, lost forever,
out of the fog, Rapa Nui

Ancient, land, remote, devoid of all life
Mankind, oblivion, spiral, out of control
