lyrics

Crumbling stone brick breathe
Shimmering in the dim setting sun
tree roots roaming the streets
Heading for the one gone beyond

Sleepy dust trails crawl
Gaping building are howling
Wandring Unbeings callw
Surrounding forrest stand bowing

Deep within the city core
Winding trails from time before
Unobstructed passagways to daylight

In the sighing midnight winds
Echoeing sounds of wisdom sings
Whispering words that guide insight

We`ll ligh the torche
We`ll spread the flame along

Amidst the silent stars
Face the final fears
Appearances are emptiness
World of man disappears
Nothing left to affect this day
Renunciate

Cut through all the stale vexations
The dream destroyed
Reality is void

Silent inner mass
Collective strength change pace
Atoms spinning fast
Temple life leads the way

We`ll ligh the torche
We`ll spread the flame along
