Modern times have never looked bleaker
And I've seen the darkest ages of life
Your death has come around to haunt you
And your madness has supplied the strife
Now I've broken all the rules I've written
Just to bring you to this cold fort between
Your ailing home and afterlife's wither
A bastion only seen in your dreams

Through the black
I've seen you before
Knocking on a forbidden door
If you seek this madness in truth
Take my soul bestowed unto you

If you've got a way of survival
Possess the power to save your home
My failure as a god is total
As I watch over a land of bones
Now I've broken all the rules I've written
Just to bring you to this cold fort between
Your ailing home and afterlife's wither
A bastion only seen in your dreams

Through the black
I've seen you before
Knocking on a forbidden door
If you seek this madness in truth
Take my soul bestowed unto you

Take a minute to think
You've been brought to the brink
Of existence to save the population
Floods and nuclear fire
Kept the times looking dire
Now's the chance to redeem civilization
Yet a risk is attached
With this unholy pact
If forsaken I'll come from the shadows
Let your madness be quelled
Live a legend to tell
Make the best of the end, and what follows

With no other choices
And quieting voices
I'd never expected
To be disconnected
To sacrifice all
To hold off the fall
For a world I don't trust
We do what we must

So I'll lend you my essence
For your rusted throne
And you could bring back the light
To the last home
Of civilization
Without which I'm gone
So take this godsoul to bring forth a new dawn
I'll forgive the death you've earned
The cities you've burned
The lessons we've learned
For all that remains, just sacrifice me
I'll hide away in a castle on the sea
