Fall of Earth City Lyrics

News had drifted on the wind of many minds that this was to be an
Occasion of great importance. For it was said by some that Earth City
Had somehow uncovered a single time sleeper from the time before
Although the cryptic writings upon his tomb were now faded beyond
Decipherable reading, it was said, by the disembodied members of the
Ruling kind, that the entombed was from that time on Earth before the
City stretched its metal web from pole to pole leaving green things only
In the wells of immortal minds

Upon the third revolution after its arrival, the tomb that slept without
Life was removed for inspection. The day was programmed for a clear dome
Above, with a mild breeze wafting from the central weather post, below
Throngs of class three occupants were gathering from various sectors to
Observe the opening, as per standard procedure, their data input
Stations were fed appropriate propaganda so that their reports would
Coincide with what the rulers had predetermined
And so it was upon that day of opening, his spirit did appear and confuse
Once again. It was evident to all that what lay within was not of mortal
Composure. Thoughts emanating from deep within its dimensionless cave
Conveyed this belief to all within the medi-dome.
What is this apparition now amongst our kind?

Quickly thereafter, all pressure was released from within the stillness.
Earth City, unknowingly at that time, was about to enter a new phase of
Its existence

Violent quaking began to shake the towers of sector 63, manifestations
Of melting speed its wings over the structure until once again, ancient
Soil kissed the sky

And the beginning of the end swept all that was into its eternal grasp
