Track Name: Cover Your Skies
Cover your skies, tear them all down
Share a single breath of life with merely a drone
Sundered powers that hold us divided,
One of them is nothing, the other's enlighted

Of her is the disastrous female tribe and race
no help in hateful poverty, only in wealth
created to inspire, assembled to adorn her,
the brazen sky, a citadel forever

No one will protect them from certain death
The pleasance of ashes in a mortal's breath
witnessing the moment the forces are released
Evils, harsh pain and troublesome disease

Fed to the automaton part by part
Forged by the creator of my glowing heart
Undying, immortal but longing for peace
storms and boiling waters, witness of my grief


Should I be praising yours?
Did you ever ease the pain
Did you ever wipe the tears
Of the frightened?

Are you still there awaiting ours?
It's never gonna be the same
Have you ever seen the eyes
Of the brightened?


Here I'm sitting sculpting people
My spitting image is going to be
A lineage like mine to suffer
Created to hate you just like me

Just a pile of flesh, wrapped in a veil of flowers
Storming and Driving, approving Heresy
Defying the towering clouds above us
Let it all out, learn to be free


My lineages upraise from mediocrity
while immolating centuries of agony
Until it will come to the day uncertain
When I will be free, just to carry the burden

This betrayal! Declining salvage
History wont recreate the unequal balance
Winds of fire to rage, seas of blood to drown
Heavy lies the weight of the lithic crown


Here I'm sitting sculpting people
My spitting image is going to be
A lineage like mine to suffer
Created to hate you just like me

Just a pile of flesh, wrapped in a veil of flowers
Storming and Driving, approving Heresy
Defying the towering clouds above us
Let it all out, learn to be free
Track Name: Edward Teller
Orange skies stabbed by the contrail
Fundamental human instincts prevail
Hopelessly enduring the agony
Doomed to suffer longer than ones legacy

The flick of a switch, mere human error
Late impulses in the hands of the teller
Hearken the far screach of trinities call
To scatter the clouds, ready to fall

Heat wave is nearing as hell starts rising
Vision is fading when crossing the summits
Five minutes to twelve, eternity's ending
With the final wipe erasing all prophets

Blind eyes keep staring into the light
Silent clocks keep ticking till the end of the night
Stand in the ashes of a thousand lives
And ask their souls if honour matters


The radiance of a thousand suns
Had burst into the sky at once
It's the splendor of the mighty one
And I've become death, shatterer of worlds

Just a matter of question and judgement
Legacies preserved awaiting the end
Caused by creations of mortal hands
From dust to dust, from glass to sand
