Earth torn from it's path by meteoric pass,
Showered by debris,
Continents crumble, our cities funeral pyres,
Crash into the sea.

The sun has turned to black,
No turning back,
They hide amongst the stars and wait....

Reaper's shadow cast across the aftermath,
We cannot escape,
Everlasting night, return to pagan rites,
The old ones rule supreme.

    General CommentAbout the end of the world and just watching it happen. But, the "old ones" (Gods) "hide amongst the stars" and are letting it happen to humanity in order to re-set the world back to it's old ways.

    General Commentelectric wizard does a magnificent job of convaying a sincerly terrifying sense of morose doom and meloncholy. this song is a prime example.

    General CommentThe reference to the old ones brings up more Lovecraft tons, but they cannot hide amongst the stars. The poison colour of the stars is what has rendered the old ones immobile.

    General CommentScientifically, this is about an asteroid or meteors causing the end of the world or a severe blow to life and humanity on Earth. Metaphorically, the sun turning black and the reaper's shadow signify doom, death and destruction. On a whole other level, the old ones could be Lovecraftian Gods waiting to re-take the earth after this event. After the meteor shower and destruction, the state of the earth returned to what it was in the pre-Christian era, as this religion and its followers were either destroyed or lost their hope/faith as anarchy reigned and civilization returned to primitive times, causing the rise of pagan or "old ones' " religion/faith.

    It would be interesting to know what is hiding and waiting among the stars: old Gods, the meteors, or both? Or, could it be that the whole meteoric pass is a metaphor for what these Gods are going to do to the earth? Truly frightening.
