"Muramasa" as written by and Mark Holcomb Misha Mansoor....
Somewhere in time, we welcomed in the fall.
But in the distance we can see, shining clear, our demise to be.
We're not listening to ourselves.

You ask these questions in subconsciousness,
but still we choose to deny the flood
surrounding nations. Wake up!
The water is rising now.
We are the universe inside of you waiting patiently.

All the world by a thread?
Distance the lies that are sold. They will not justify the pain.
They will not live to see the day.

    Lyric CorrectionYou completely forgot the second half of the song. This is how I hear the lyrics including the said omitted part:

    ---------

    Somewhere in time,
    We welcomed in the fall
    But in the distance we can see shining clear,
    Our demise to be;
    We're not listening
    To ourselves!
    Ahh!

    You asked discretion and subconsciousness
    but still, we choose to deny the foresaw altercations!

    Wake up!
    The water is rising, now!
    We are the universe inside of you waiting patiently!

    All the world, by a thread
    Distance the lies that are sold,
    (But wait!)
    They will not justify the pain!
    They will not live to save the day!

    General Commentpretty sure the trilogy is about an rpg type adventure to save a world falling apart. all three parts of it are named after swords in video games

    My InterpretationIf you notice in the 3-song progression (Muramasa, Ragnarok, Masamune), the common lyrics change from

    "Somewhere in time
    we welcomed in the fall
    But in the distance we can see shining clear
    Our demise to be
    We're not listening
    to ourselves"

    to (in Ragnarok)

    "Somewhere in time
    we welcomed in the midnight leave
    But in the distance we can see shining clear
    Our demise to be
    We're not listening
    to ourselves"

    to (in Masamune)

    "Somewhere in time we welcomed in the fall
    now in the distance I can see shining clear
    our demise to be
    we're not listening
    to ourselves"

    Have you noticed that in Muramasa he says "WE can see," yet at the end of Masamune he says "I can see?" This is literally a trilogy about someone watching the world end and all of his family and friends die, and then slowly loses his mind at the end of Masamune. That screaming in the background, where you can make out the words "I CAN'T F***ING TAKE IT" and "GET AWAY FROM ME?" Schizophrenia? Paranoia?
