lyrics

On, beyond
Distant memories of home are gone
Abscond
Flee this word and carry on
Beyond
Sailing stormy seas until the dawn
Live on
Our course is set our weapons drawn

Oceans of ash
Gardens of salt
Reckoning wrought
From never enough

We, the blight
Venture on through endless night
The light
Torrent done our end in sight
My crew
Shed that which we once knew
Fate's view
Once were many, now are few

Oceans of ash
It's all your fault
Reckoning wrought
Now we have naught

Barren waste like earth
Clearly shows your worth
Landing gear meets shore
Plant the flag it's yours

Death at our back
Betrayal
Death lies ahead
We cannot fail
Where we have lived
Where we have bled
Into the great unknown

---

40 men set sail forth to see
Where Sól doth set
30 men arrived at shore
Ten paid the water's debt
20 men did winter through
Ten more did Vinland take
10 again laid down our best
In graves Skraelingar make

Gliding quiet 'cross the vast and
Lumin-clouded track
An eye appeared then to the rest
Afloat in seas of black
It beckoned them to raise the sail and
Make the oars to crack
Apollo ever travels west;
The moon doth bring them back.

"The universe is not bound by any such limited concepts as up and down or forward and backward; for only the great shadow of entropy endlessly stretches its black tendrils in any semblance of a direction. When the void is gapped and Andromeda suckles at the teat of the Milky Way there will only be netherward." ... more
