  Artist List   /   Becoming The Archetype   /   Children of the Great Extinction

10. The Sacrament

Children of the Great Extinction
by Becoming The Archetype


Though your failures bind you
This death will not define you

Rise, renew
Extract the water from the body
Drink, consume
Absorb the life within the blood
Move regain
New life to animate the flesh
Go and reclaim the planet

They took his life in a jealous rage
He exposed their inadequacies
And shined a light upon their failures
Unblemished flesh a painful reminder

Retrieved the capsule from the ocean’s grasp
Co-opted systems to complete their task
The laid the corpse inside the metal frame
Connected tubes and wires to the lifeless veins

Not a single drop reclaimed was wasted
And when the sacrament was finished
The capsule closed and began to rise
Pierced the clouds and completely vanished

Veiled in obscurity
Hope was gone
The soul displaced
Clothed in his purity
A new day dawns
The past erased

It was a strange and dreadful strife
The day that life and death contended
The victory remained with life
The reign of death was ended
The ancient writing plainly says
Death is swallowed up in death
Now its sting is lost forever
Now its sting is lost forever
