lyrics

And then the day came when everything changed
Even if he tried he could’t have explained
Like all he’d seen before was different but the same
Just taking on new forms and becoming rearranged right before him Opening a whole load of ways to explore
He got drawn in, charging straight ahead, not a thought wasted on falling
He was following a calling of undiscovered orbits
Ignoring all the warnings cause that seemed more rewarding
Than going to the trouble of checking every stride and step
Containing any side-effects he might cause by mindlessness
He used to be a wanderer
Who would have thought he’d transform into a conquerer
Spreading out like viruses, taking with decisiveness
Anything and everything, unsettling the elements
He’d become negligent and menacing
Threatening his specimen’s inheritance along
With everything he cherished and he loved
And at the sound of the trumpets and a roll on the drum-kit she watched
The self-appointed king plummet from the summit to the dust
He’d bitten off more than he could stomach cause he never got enough
Tearing through her flesh with malice
While falling from the crest with the rest of his collapsing palace
On a quest to ravage
Until his last breath set him free to rest among the debris and ashes
He left nothing but wreckage and destruction
An unrivalled tyrant, a giant in the science of venoms and of toxins
The source of never ending suffering
He left her blemished and corrupted

But she still stands cause he couldn’t bring her down
No he couldn’t bring her down
And perhaps one day her scars will fade away
And she’ll be free of all bad memories
And she stills stands cause he couldn't bring her down
No he couldn't bring her down with him
