bring forth the light to raise colonies
in a single cleansing breath
don't sleep my queen the sun rises one less time than it will set
now overhead the stars that guided our forebears have turned to dust
and underfoot the churning framework of this earth succumbs to rust
bring forth the light
these footsteps take precedence as the traffic sounds fade
and this city's lungs has purged their last breath
I'm a captive of the curb before the wolves in wait
where i pledge myself to uncertainty
from this shattered breaking point
each new step must end
nothing short of the sadists that absorb ?
in search of that fleeting adversity of a merciless emptiness
that used to possess me

so i'm following stardust
what's left of the twilight
to get to that last jagged line
to the edge of the earth by the date of my birth
after 26 years I'm reclaiming what's mine
take in the thinning air
part with a cleansing breath
take in the thinning air
part with a cleansing breath

colonies collapse under their own weight
drifting all across more dead deserts
dreaming the souls of the essence of our host
we post colonies overlooking the abyss
where we share the dream of the dispossessed

on a pilgrimage
spanning these vast spilled remains
chasing visions, in a ritual of names
with no stars to follow
a jagged map etched in bone
??
?? of overtone
let the lifelong procession of shadow commence
this is the start of something; here begins:
the end of the greatest lie
henceforth, i deny that i exist

    General CommentMy guess:

    "bring forth the light to raise
    ? in a single cleansing breath
    don't sleep my queen the sunrise is
    ?
    now overhead the stars that guide
    and our forebears have turned to dust
    and underfoot the churning framework of this earth succumbs to rust
    bring forth the light
    these footsteps take residence as the traffic sounds fade
    and this city's lungs have purged their last breath
    I'm a captive of the curb before the wolves in wait
    where i pledge myself to uncertainty
    from this shattered breaking point
    each new step must end
    nothing short of the sadists that absorb ?
    in search of that fleeting adversity of a merciless emptiness
    that used to posess

    the fallen stardust
    what's left of the twilight
    to get to that last jagged line
    to the edge of the earth by the date of my birth
    after 26 years I'm reclaiming what's mine
    take in the thinning air
    part with a cleansing breath
    take in the thinning air
    part with a cleansing breath

    colonies collapse under their own weight
    drifting all across more dead deserts
    dreaming the souls of the essence of our host
    we post colonies overlooking the abyss
    where we share the dream of the despondant?

    On a ?
    Spanning these vast spilled remains
    Chasing visions, in a ritual of names
    With no stars to follow
    ? etched in bone?
    ??
    ?? of overtone
    Let the life-long procession of shadow ?
    This is the start of something; here begins:
    The end of the greatest life
    HENCEFORTH, I DENY THAT I EXIST"



    Long live The Circle

    General Commentthe beginning of the song is;

    "Bring forth the light, to raze colonies with a single cleansing breath
    Don't sleep my queen. the sun rises one less time than it will set
    Now overhead, the stars that guided our forbearers have turned to dust
    And underfoot, the churning framework of this earth succumbs to rust.
    Bring forth the light...."

    General Commentin part two:

    "...a jagged map etched in bone
    ?? buried deep in the heavy-run clarity[?]
    of overtone
    let the lifelong procession of shadow commence
    this is the start of something; here begins:
    the end of the greatest lie
    henceforth, i deny that i exist"

    i know they say "buried deep in the heavy"
    in that line, but i don't know what they're saying before or after that.

    General Commentcan't wait another day, month, year, whatever for this album!!!!

    i think this song is, at least in part, about the satanic/illuminati conspiracy to enslave mankind and globalize all nations.

    they keep talking about the light/twilight
    "now overhead the stars that guided our forebears have turned to dust
    and underfoot the churning framework of this earth succumbs to rust
    bring forth the light"
    the constitution and simple liberties have rusted in the so called "war against terror," and they need to be restored by the twilight/white hats opposing the ill will of the satanic illuminati/criminal elite

    "...so i'm following stardust
    what's left of the twilight
    to get to that last jagged line
    to the edge of the earth by the date of my birth
    after 26 years I'm reclaiming what's mine."
    i think this is an allusion to the fact that each person born has a trust fund worth $1 million+ at birth (which compounds interest for each year you survive) that is stolen upon the filing/endorsement of the barcode on the "certificate of live birth," which is a product of the u.s. statutory law opposing the framework of the constitution, which was intended to be common law. when you willingly accept the "ritual of names (specifically names w/ caps)," and admit to being this fictional citizen to the corporate states of america, you thereby forego your right as a sovereign entity to claim what is rightfully yours, that which has been stolen from you by the criminal elite.

    "we post colonies overlooking the abyss
    where we share the dream of the dispossessed"
    we share the dream of those who have been robbed of what is rightfully theirs/their trust fund.

    "let the lifelong procession of shadow commence
    this is the start of something; here begins:
    the end of the greatest lie
    henceforth, i deny that i exist"
    the only way to not admit to being a corporate fiction is to deny the existence of the fiction.
    to me, this is the only thing that makes sense from the inherent contradiction between the optimism of line two and the nihilism of line four in this stanza

    given my bleak view of the current state of affairs and the fact that i love CTTS, i think this song is the most brilliant piece of art i have ever witnessed
