about

This song is about the theory of the "heat death" end to the universe. I tried to capture the scope of the situation through narrative imagery. For further reading into the subject: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_of_an_expanding_universe

lyrics

Light devoured, time takes all
Wasting everything
Silent we walk side by side
Hidden in shadow
Luminous skies
Setting sunsets
Days growing colder and colder
Sun fading
Cold skies as time pulls us slowly apart
The silence is coming
Quiet and empty the dark embraces creations emptiness
Worlds dying
Souls fade as time pulls them slowly apart
Quiet, children
This was meant to be
From the moment you took your first breath
Nothing sees life
That will see light diminish
That day all things will have ceased
Frozen, silent
A universe that is haunted
Ghost of the glory we've seen
Dying, creation is dying
All things that were no more will be
No memories of all that ever was
No monuments of the ancient worlds
Devoured by unfeeling time gone
The rot of millennia past
Weary traveler, rest your head
Keep shut those tired eyes
Before you know it your life is over
Minuscule to the endless night
End of all conscienceness
All that was and will be has passed away
The silence is coming
All that was and will be has passed away

[solo Kyle Gruenig]

Light devoured, time takes all
Wasting everything
Silent we walk side by side
Hidden in shadow
Luminous skies
Setting sunsets
Days growing colder and colder
