Fiery the angels rose, and as they rose
Deep thunder rolled around their shores
Indignant burning with the fires of Orc

Is this somber dream a shade darker than black?

Gears underneath
Tell me what you've seen
Your vibrant eyes, a product of my conceit
Planets crossed to hold this communion
Do androids dream of electric sheep?

Crossing abandoned caverns of a fading city
I can feel the rain against my racing heart
It's not easy to meet your maker,
But that's what it is to be a slave

Scrambling hands desperate to find purchase over a bleak landscape
Soaked with what they would later call a second chance
Soaked with what would be the last breath of a fading apparatus

There exists sights beyond belief
But they fade, left in their wake
Attack ships off the shoulder of Orion
C-beams glitter near the Tannhäuser Gate

All those moments lost in time, like tears in the rain

Time to die
