We call out to the beasts of the sea to come forth and join us, this night is yours
Because, one day we will all be with you in the black and deep
One day we will all go into the water

Go into the water
Live there die there
Live there die

We reject our earthly fires
Gone are days of land empires
Lungs transform to take in water
Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home

We are alive, and we'll metamorphasize
And we'll sink as we devolve back to beasts
Our home is down here, and we've known this for years
We must conquer from the sea, we build an army with water steeds

We'll rise, from our depths down below
Release yourselves, drown with me
We will conquer land with water

Gone are days of land empires
Lungs transform to take in water
Cloaked in scales we swim and swim home
We swim home
We swim home

    We will devolve back into the very thing we once were and we will all develop lungs so we can live in the water permanantly.

    This song is about colonization of space. People used to believe space was filled with ether; this song is using water as an allegory for space. A lot of dethklok songs do.
    We reject our earthly fires; gone are days of land empires!!
    The video for this song has a hint of its own where the swinging-pendulum-axes all stop and point to the sky at the end.

    It means that we go back to everything that once was "our home is down here. And we've known this or years"
