We've broken the binding chain
The earth cannot contain
Our arms stretch past the sky
Now as gods we all shall rise

Exaltation in the least of these
We are all that will be.
Now awake! and find the dream conceived
For we are the measure of all

This is the dawn of time, this is the end of the world
We will transcend ourselves, and we will conquer them both

Our commission sealed the grave
Raise your glasses now it is done.
And with nothing above or below
Upon salted ground we rise.

This is the dawn of time, this is the end of the world
We will transcend ourselves, and we will conquer them both
For we must shed our skin, become as gods in the light
If we're to find our own way, rewrite our paths from the start

Rise up as gods.
Rise up. adorned as gods.

    General Comment*A Hope for Home added brief analysis's to the posted lyrics for each song on their Myspace*

    "Behold, I teach you The Overman. The Overman is the meaning of the earth. Let your will say: The Overman shall be the meaning of the earth!"
    -Frederich Nietzsche, thus spake Zarathustra. Nietzsche's Overman embodies what we must become in this world with no god. The next stage of humanity, greater than man. All we have is now, we must then reject other-worldliness, and become the "meaning of the earth."
