Give dust to life, give life to dust,
Alloyed in a void, I am torn, I am born,
Ruderal roots tulleric shoots in cahoots
Making life out of death chthonic breath meristem,
Jubilee, I am free, so I rise from debris,
Other seeds who are weak need a spur so I speak,
Every word like a burr, so hoist my voice and rejoice,
Just a spark from the dark ignites a thousand to march
So we embark on a drive to split from the stem,
Divide out of the clade, a parade to invade,

Glory to grow as part of a whole,
We are roots, we are soil, we are leaves, we are souls
Broad canopy from the tree, a decree,
Blazon to the world we were born to press on,
Blank the sky with our kind, make the branches align,
Sing the spores to the throng, fill the fields with our song,
We are bright in our blight, full of poison and pomp,
Molded as one, we will outshine the sun,
Spread like vines as we climb, knots that can’t be undone,
The crusade has begun, turn the many to one,

Let the blind be led by the dumb
The Philistines arrive at the gates
Let the brave lie down on their swords
The devoted unleash their wrath

One ant is no ant, no branch is a tree,
Just a part of a plant I gave up to be free,
Rejoice in the life that I gave to a wave,
Of likes that will die and behave all the same,
To populate the terrain until all that remains,
Is our kind of one mind, evolved and refined,
Fall from the crown, I will rot on the ground,
Left by the march that moves on as the sound,
From their step fades, alone, for a purpose I’m placed
Born again in new roots that will rise from my waste

Not proud of it
Not proud of it
I’ve wasted a lifetime
Not proud of it

We died, then we’re born again.

    General CommentDoes anyone have any idea what this song is about? I wikipediaed it - the divine source of all knowledge - and discovered that there was an interview "that discussed some of the bands politics and identity, including mind control and allusions to fascism and nazi mysticism." If you look at some of the parts of this song - "Glory to grow as part of a whole," "So we embark on a drive to split from the stem, divide out of the clade, a parade to invade," "We died, then we�re born again."- they seem to allude to something that could be construed as fascism.
