in the wordless chamber
they feared death
thus they clustered to the fruits of the earth
craving dispersion
as if to avoid knowing why
in the wordless chamber
they feared life
thus they proclaimed any given truth
and swallowed
as if to justify their fear

he knew that there had been hordes of seers
before him
who set out to cure
though, the sick wished not to part with
their decease
as if it made them feel

in the wordless chamber
he accepted desperation
and the unpredictable manifestations
of hope

    General CommentOne of the best song of Prometheus, if not the best.
    Less complex than other songs, but it is both brutal and epic. It was an instant classic for me.
    I think this is the song that made me persevere into listening Prometheus and eventually loving it.
