behold the face of godless wonder may it burn brightly as your will defines its state of mind witness the dreamer’s demise we observe and we anesthetize ethereal but alive our world aflame in the violent sunrise unmask the truth from disguise until it bleeds down from vacant eyes leading immaterial lives we’re remaining for the incandescent reprise behold the face of godless wonder weightless slumber cradled in the solemn arms of a welcoming abyss by the light of the moon reflecting shadows on our lunacy traverse this madness calling and icarus is falling in our name by the light of the moon dispelled illusions reveal what could be erase this martyr’s calling and icarus is falling let icarus fall a silhouette to channel shadows siphon the dreams to hang them in the gallows sunwalker have we not evolved sunwalker is there no other choice cleansing immolation hypothermic shock decisions, decisions correct the silver wings’ course defuse a shining death uncoerced impervious to the source we’re silent viewers of the stellar force and maybe it’s wishful thinking and maybe it’s a fated glimpse into the arcane and maybe it’s eternal sinking but this bright tomorrow will not be in vain behold the face of godless wonder weightless slumber cradled in the solemn arms of a welcoming abyss by the light of the moon reflecting shadows on our lunacy traverse this madness calling and icarus is falling in our name by the light of the moon dispelled illusions reveal what could be erase this martyr’s calling and icarus is falling let icarus fall a quantum prism to harness infinity splicing golden strands to reach divinity sunwalker will we not ascend sunwalker is there no other choice in a fleck of luminescence we embrace the collision let icarus fall
