Living beneath the shadow of the tree of life
Unmoved design
Down from the twisted lattice of branches
Ten fruit divine

Mercury peered beyond the curtain to defy
Guided Gemini
Learned from their light Apollo forged wings for flight
Piercing the sky

The aether glazing in his eyes
Revealing proof of ancient lies

Piercing through the sky

Scenes from ancient years
Twisting through the gears
Celestial coat of spheres

Change of night to day
firmament left flayed
His thoughts forever changed

Apollo returned with heavenly flame
The minds of all who gathered ablaze

The old tree burned to the ground
The fruit lay rotted and charred

Extinguished by the waters of the sky
no more declared prophet divine
