lyrics

Atop a mountain overlooking ravenous seas
We revel in our glory and the majesty of our creation
Succeeding all expectations that our fellow man has set for us
Night has come, and the world comes alive

We now know what it is to create life
Breaking all boundaries that our reality has set
We are not meant to disappoint, only to further our race
Having done what we were built for, we have come to an end
Is there to be a sequel, or is this life it?

We stare down at our creation, as it slowly becomes sentient
Its face contorts in concentration as it tries to find purpose
Contemplating history, and what we have set in motion
As comprehension crosses its face

We know it has found its purpose
To extinguish life as we know it and find a way to rebuild
The creature rises, towering over its sires
Resound in its goal to begin to cleanse the world

We were our own undoing, as our pride overtook our morals
To behold humanities greatest creation
Slowly drowning in our greed and misplaced sense of purpose
Always looking for another quick fix
With complete disregard for our future

We began to construct from the building blocks of life
Unprepared, but determined to finish
Always prepared to meet our quota
Never ready to admit our shortcomings

Accomplished in our work, we have prepared our funeral pyre
To burn is to know true enlightenment
