One underground
My worm cathedral
All earthy for your infestation
These little workers build me an empire
Your loyalty I burrowed out mined by erosion
My little kingdom ready for me now
These careful times
The residue of past digestion
Get what you can now
Good staff are hard to find
My bitter name
The full effect of time and tension
You utter duty and fight to stay the same

Abracadaver
With a cross upon the wall
I was blinded by it all
Now the faces left behind
These are no friends of mine
When your fears are cast aside
Out across the great divide
Rage is part of your design
But I won't play this time
Hero waiting by the line
Here on my own
All alone
On my own
All alone

The only surivors
Why do you run and hide?
Here inside the lighthouse
You lose the way
Ghost of yesterday
And before you know
You'll fade away
You and I were will live and die
We are not the only survivors
You and me we're too blind to see
We are not the only survivors
Games that you people play
Here inside the lighthouse
You'll have to stay
Time she ran away
Slipping through our fingers
Time running out

Core
I number you
Carving circles in your soul
I pull you through
As I do
Cut your family ties
Before your eyes
Too much, too soon
Early warning
Saved by the day
Carried away, you're still falling
Take me over
Harder, colder
I want you to be

The chosen few
Awake again and I'm alone
The thoughts I have are not my own
No ones knows I'm here
The faces move around the room
Their voices cut into the gloom
But they're not listening
What's that shadow moving?
Is that a life in here?
Won't someone please come and free me
Here, dead but still alive in here
Help me come alive
In here
There's a lot I've got to do
It was not your place to choose
And now
I lose

Two underground
My worm cathedral
Diseased by all the interention
I watch them turning
Into things they might have been
These fatal days
Corrupted by our own perfection
You're looking to me
But there's nothing more to say

    General CommentGotta love the sample at the start. What an epic song. So many musical ideas ...epic is the only word for it.

    General CommentYou would never guess from listening to the music, how disturbing the lyrics are. In case you don't know it sounds like a dead man worshiping someone who's still alive and then eventually bringing him down to his grave. The beginning sounds like a snowy christmas eve or something, it's just so hauntingly pretty. The rest of course is amazing and wow; a 9 minute instrumental outro. 17 minutes of lyrical music:9 minutes instrumental. Pretty uneven ratio for a 26 minute song. Gotta listen to it from the eerie recording of "the prophecy" to the soothing piano outro that's a little hidden considering it's silent for about 15 seconds after the powerful guitar finish, but don't miss out on that part.

    Beautiful, but sooo disturbing and haunting

    My InterpretationIt's even more sinister. It tells of a an entity (zombie) taking over the soul of a body...
