Burning down across the sky, let the words be spoken
Shed the weight of our time, we are the only constant
Sulphur ride as ages burn, igneous and yearning
Foretell the wake of coming end, a galaxy's desire

Shattered bones under strain, sweeping riptide tomb
Cities under oily black, a cruel manifestation

We are lost before dawn
And the ones who fell cried “Let it rain”

Nth dimension storm bringers, if they knew that's what they'd say
Interstellar machinations let the rain blot out the sky
Withered essence of understanding, a flash of future scions
Distraught faces searching for a taste of sweet denial

Chain reaction of insight, a gift to the deserving few
The seismic shock of rock on rock, apparent immolation
Fissures rend agape Earth's skin, molten blood claim those who fail
To see the coming of four keys, doors long since forgotten

On the tips of tongues a word, could it be devastation?
On the lips of scribes a sound foretelling this awakening

We are lost before dawn
And the ones who fell cried “Let it rain”

Those mouths agasp as lava burns as blood sweeps away and skies crack
Chasms swallow and a prophet awakes to the realisation of a star
He speaks of a time of change, four corners of our world unite
Wind lashes his words to silence, his misery to go unheard
A signal sent to rally forth, silent arrival coming, time is short
Cover of cloud and sleet and thunder, the scarecrow's silent laughing
Some looked East, some prayed to God, gambit laid in false hope
All the watered souls not in vain, a glorious beginning


from Chapter I: The Arrival, released August 1, 2012
