The Last Hour Of Ancient Sunlight

Draconian

Black is the sunlight shimmering below
it flows through life and the guilt we share
Our sorrow, it cuts through the undergrowth
as we abandon this ravenous Earth alone

The zeitgeist dimmed the surface and seized the soul
Our Mother wept behind the fence
and we drained her blood, then forgetting her face
and hide from everyone

to breathe, to conquer
to linger, to utilize the ignorant herd

In rapture from nature we divorce
like orphans by desire
from this closing light

The bewildered sleep
the shadowy voyager is lurking
he's in the flesh of landscapes vaporous
The vacant, untiring Sovran of old
He's the machinery; igniting the paralyzed soil

We took the blood of the earth
and fell in love with death
with life itself as an excuse

Black is the sunlight shimmering below
it flows through life and the guilt we share

We're hiding in chorus as starry eyes close
and seasons part in farewell
'cause we drained her blood, then forgetting her face
to hide from everyone

The bewildered sleep
the shadowy voyager is lurking
he's in the flesh of landscapes vaporous
The vacant, untiring Sovran of old
He's the machinery; igniting the paralyzed soil
