Seas of fire
Fuelled by acid rain and wind
A billion voices screaming
Hands reaching for indifferent stars

Much too late
Too late to regret, too late to amend
Far too far, too far we have gone
In our war with ourselves

Great wings of death envelop the earth
Display your visage, blot out the sun
Ending a war that cannot be won

All-encompassing terminus of our biosphere

Castles and towers of glass
Fragile and shining
In burning twilight

Shatter the image
Refusing to face
Our glaring reflection
The weakness within

Annihilation of imperfect life
With pure light beyond our grasp
Plunging the world into total darkness



All we've accomplished dissolves into naught
Before the harvest of what we have sown
Under the gaze of a pitiless sun
A terminal breath ends a legacy lost


from Catalyst, released August 28, 2015
