You stare into the blank nothingness of interstellar space. All is quiet. Another day goes by with no news to report. Then you hear slow heavy metal music playing...


Our vessel just a beacon for any stranger
No sentinel to serve as guard or guide
Against the endless evil in the darkness
Led to us by the Cyclops Eye
How far we’ve come seeking trials just to prove
How far we’ve yet to go
Overwhelmed by our desires crisis will ensue
And we’ll sleep with the unseen down below

Is there anyone who can redeem us?
So we might dare to dream again

Shaken by what unfamiliar thunder
What wretched howl that forces mountains to their knees
The air is burdened by a choir of breaking bones
Hell-bent on carnage leaving none to grieve

Is there anyone who can redeem us?
So we might dare to dream again
The calm before the great exhale
Affirms this is the end
