Colossi

Hypergiant

Band/Artist: Hypergiant

Album: Father Sky

Upon
A desolate throne
With vampyric greed
I suck all the marrow from bone

King
of all that I see
I crush with great cruelty
those who would stand against me

Crush with great cruelty those who would stand against me

The cities run red with the blood of the billions
the tempest howls it’s bitter chill
Heavy hangs the head that bears it’s swollen crown
but the collar is heavier still
Gilded plastic cages with ceilings of glass
frame all-encompassing lie
The nectar is gone and all recourse is lost
now we must fight or we die

Quake
As death rains from the sky
Steel wings borne of hatred
Black hearts fuelled by fire

Black painted spectres of fury and fire
consume the black blood of the Earth
Skeletal hand of the feeble of conscience
ensure that their screams go unheard
The mold has been set, cast the pieces in motion
Now crawl neath the yoke of our greed
The faceless have thrived on our sweat and our torment
enslaved to our ignorant creed

Quake
As death rains from the sky
Steel wings borne of hatred
Black hearts fuelled by fire

Gone
An epoch cast in stone
Break the bonds of our serfdom
Seed the land with their bones
Tear our kings from their thrones!

Shatter the shadow of Crassus!
Bring the Colossi down!
Chew off the chains of the plutocrat!
We make the future our own!
