lyrics

Artifice, these faces not our own; search deeper
Unseen, our silent shape speaks from in our shell

We see only a slant, we war with wood and nail
We see only in part, we replaced what once was

From heaven's frame birthed, as we rose up from the new-found dust
It was there we exiled the dawn that our form came
We looked into our eyes, when we swore we never would return
The world is our home, by force came our inheritance

But we were always meant for the stars,
To live across skies, to live past their reach
Instead we came to reinvent
We broke open the Earth, and tore down its skies

Forever we'll live in the stead of the life that once breathed here
Innocent veins gave way to our brazen lust; all creation groans

The grass and flower faded, but we've come to break the spell
To undo the hands that first held this world, to make it ours

But we were always meant for the stars,
To live across skies, to live past their reach
Instead we came to reinvent
We broke open the Earth, and tore down its skies

In an image long forgotten, we stand atop the gods
We burned their shells forever, and picked up where they left off
We made the heavens our throne, and our footstool the Earth
Until we made Fate our own, then reformed the world in our image

Breathe in the dawn of a new Earth
When ocean breaks against cloud

We are the new world
Ravagers of the old
We are forever, the end
And holder of your corpse
