Wake up now, this is the time you've waited for Far below, where shadows fester as they grow An army thousands strong, obsessed by right and wrong Sense their time is coming near So they turn towards the light from their region of the night Marching on and on They near the air, it won't be long You know you're on the way out It's just a matter of time You thought you'd rule the world forever Long live the king, don't spare the loser After all, you're not what you thought you were at all You're just a natural fact, another cul de sac On nature's hard unfeeling trail And all those dreams of old will be stories left untold Cut off in your prime, extinct until the end of time Now the host emerges, a shadow starts to fall Not one knows what hit them, none can see at all Even as the end approaches still they're not aware How can you fight a foe so deadly When you don't even know it's there And now that the job is almost done Maybe some escape, no, not even one © 2017
