lyrics

Underneath the dust
Cemented in the rust
Surface wears the scar
Of the Reaper’s Mark

Down from the heavens and
up from below barren feet
Forever set to repeat

Branches are broken
Selection resumes in its wake
Incessant cycle
Perpetually cleaning the slate

Out of the ash we've come
Into ash we'll return
Lines in the strata forged
There where the embers burn

Effigies of the past
Carved in the books of stone
Ghosts made of paraffin wax
Growing inside the bones

Obsolescence fated
Premature demise
Hypoxic damnation
Bleak anoxic stagnation

Rebirth; Flourish in the purge
Reformed; Cleansing of the Earth

Floods strip away
Clearing the waste
Removed; Failed appendages
Renewed; Mutations

Floods strip away
Clearing the waste

Prophetic blessing in disguise
Newborn creations soon will rise
Carrying forth the substance of all hope

Cut all ties to the dying past
waiting to be freed

Out of the ash we've come
Into ash we'll return
Lines in the strata forged
There where the embers burn

Effigies of the past
Carved in the books of stone
Ghosts made of paraffin wax
Growing inside the bones

Underneath the dust
Cemented in the rust
Surface wears the scar
of the Reaper’s Mark

Down from the heavens and
up from below barren feet
Underneath the dust
