A voice from the past echoes the fate -
a tale of all things yet to come
as it once was, so it shall be again
modern day Children of the Sun

Seek the hidden rhyme and there you'll find
a new world order
Feel the mystery - so much to see through the
eyes of hope

The Thoughts of Ma'at, forever secured -
locked in the Ages
Goddess of Truth speaks eternally
from the depths of the pages

Seek the hidden words - as time unfolds
you'll find the answers
Feel the mystery - look to the Sea, under
Skies of Hope

What have we done? Can we right all the
wrongs - the evils and fears, for thousands of
years, that forever drain our vitality?
Can this go on without dyer consequence?
Our tragic ways, the end of days that shadow
the dawn of eternity...

He's taken form in human - likeness
and manifests himself in all our darkest
Preying upon centuries of weakness
Feasting on despair and our own selfish

Bow down to me - (we will never understand)
Then take my hand and you will see - (we'll see...)
you will see paradise - (a paradise?) - of
pain and death
awaiting for you all - (we'll decide the future)

Lost evermore the essence of truth, although
she tried in vein to bring us peace, it will
ever rest in our hands
We've cried a thousand tears for all we had,
and all the things we could have been,
we must find our way again

Fools who looks for answers in a rhyme,
seeking out a lie, an illusion
I am the future, the ageless mutation

Five beyond the skies align, Zeus to Ra - the
final sign

My opposition's drawing near, feeding on his
fear - tasting anguish
I have the power - the ageless invasion

Five beyond the skies align, Zeus to Ra - the
final sign
From the Messenger on Wings, Peace and
War - a line of Kings...

Again the Titans clash on the edge of this
earthen plane
Now from the depths they speak - echoing
from the wave
- From the Waves...

Choose the way, five paths there for you to find
turn the page, the question lies between the lines can
we change?

    "Five beyond the skies align, Zeus to Ra"

    This line gives us the answer to a question I'm sure a lot of people ask: "What is the Power of Five?" Apparently it's the power of the five planets from Jupiter (the Latin name for Zeus) to the Sun (Ra is the Egyptian sun god). So Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Venus, and Mercury are the "Five." The moon seems to play a significant part in the story too and "Ra" isn't a planet itself, but I'm fairly sure they aren't part of the "Five" jusdging from this line from the official website:

    "Ma'at spoke of an alignment of five planets" Yup. Planets.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
