In midnight blackness he stands in a doorway. Black magic. Black Alien. Yes is it someone I know? Will I ever be without fear of him?
Track Name: The Things to Come
A nation of superstructures that cone into the blue canopy. Modern sparta. Can you hear the horns blaring? Have we seen this kindless order before? Can you hear the metal clanging? Nothing stands in the way.
Track Name: I Declare
The Emperor of Death addresses the Kingdom. The super-rally in the Ultra-Nation. Amphetamine rush pours over the masses. A megalomaniac on a rampage. The sentinels circle the stadium. Flags in the air. As oracle continues the group becomes frenzied, moving to the thump smash thumping of the Emperors hand.
Track Name: Baptism of Fire
The west is set burning. Everything is hot and luminescent and flashes by us as our feet move quickly running through the dusk. As outer space forms above us we see the mighty ships that so easily flames the land. Run and run into the night...
Track Name: The Arrival
All the worlds heads drop down in sorrow and sadness for all our foolish antics through eternity have had no meaning or purpose. He has risen. Quietly. Slowly. As we ignored the signs, now he is here. The electronic chirps and bleeps of our computers are all that's left to be heard as we are enslaved.
