lyrics

Observing
The Temples
Of the Gods
Obscured by
A Haze
Impermeable

Lamenting
The Vessel
Of His being
He knows not
What fate him


I suffer from the
Deadliest Ailment
To assault my kind
She calls herself
Mortality

I will not tread along
The path of the doomed masses
I will not meet the
Welcoming arms of the
White Light

I will not suffer
The pain of the
Mortal coil
I will merge my
Existence
With my legacy

I cure the virus
Freeing myself
Existence is
No longer limited
By Life

Aeons of dying stars
Life comes and goes
Remembered as but a
Fleeting moment
In Reality

Entropy gains
The upper hand
I watch as galaxies crumble
And all becomes
Void and dead

Aeons of being
I witness as
Death itself
Meets its end

I am the last
I am the void
I am the omega
Immortal

I gaze upon
My empty domain
A blank canvas
Never to be
Repainted

I grasp myself
Intent to asphyxiate
But to my horror
I am invincible...

I stand where
Existence once stood
