An enormous demon draws his bow
The earth creaks as it is trampled down
Smoke coils about his steel arms
The figure of an approaching power

Facing his tremendous aggression
I watched his show of resolute force
Cruel arrows of fire are lodged
In the window as it trembles and rattles

This new order
This sudden plunder
Give me back my world, there is nowhere lower than here

Showered by the sparks that rain down
With shards of glass laying around me
I pierced the sky and severed with my own hands
The continuation of this uninvited dream

What could have gone wrong?
The crystal clear landscape
Will never again appear before me
Even now my field of vision is ablaze

Showered by the sparks that rain down
Everything around me falls apart
Until it vanishes even from memory
As his wounded figure watches me

slowly... slowly... slowly in the dark.
