Lyrics

… and as if awaken from eternal sleep
he sought a mentor
for he no longer knew his position
«It is time after miracles
and I am its prophet
I have not come to cure
but to bear witness decease»
«It is the place where blood and soil
lie beyond the boundaries of the sun
and I am its prophet
I cast the shadow
I absorb the light»
«I am the prophet
I bear witness
I absorb
I cry»
«As I die
I shall burst wide open
As I die
I shall release the apocalypse
my prophecy
Thus, I hold on to faith
Thus, I keep the hope
That it will prosper
and devour»
«It is time after miracles
and I am its prophet
I have not come to cure
but to bear witness decease»
… and pain joined his urge to perceive
