Lyrics:

The moon cracks through the cave roof above,
Illuminates our gambits all in pale, wan white.
Amidst the scattered remnants of ill-fated love,
A last bid for freedom in the arms of the knight.

The blood remembers a dream of the sea, the scars in scattershot filigree.
See through the eyes, the eyes of the child, the old, haunted forests stretch out whispering and wild.

We have cracked the heavens themselves apart,
And their numbers are joined with our own,
Against the wretched, bitter heart,
That sets our world ablaze with drones.

The reverend mother's bones grow dolorous with vines, upon the shores of the great oceans, sometimes pale moonlight shines,
Twin eyes glare from the Alternian sky, where from time to time her graceless warships drift by.

We will paint the firmament in flame,
Offer up our blood in sacrifice,
Sic semper tyrannis, a baptism,
In the milk of paradise.
