Serpent of light, movement of the soul
Crawling stately along the spine
Mighty phoenix, from the ashes arises
Firebird cycle, life, regenerate the cell

Life burns fierce, reduced to ashes
Resurrection from the flame, ageless process
Quest for absolution, out of bounds introspect
Self-consuming womb, ever-present, meet no end

It seems like I always knew this
Since I'm a child I can feel it
My inner light everlasting
Revolving within a circle

Extended wings I'm flying
Over the valleys and planes
The curve of space I'm leaving
Death is just an illusion
(An illusion)x6[fades out]

Oroborus symbol of eternal life
Dig a tunnel through light, through ignorant walls
I'm counting the days but I'm dying
Grow up with impatience I'm falling down

On the peaks of radiant mountains
This truth is growing before before me
My attention fixed on this silence
Rediscover life while I'm breathing

Designing the shape of material
Frozen icon distant reminder
Mankind has forgotten the gateways
By the mouth of the serpent regenerate

    The ouroborus was a serpent eating its own tail, symbolizing eternal life. The lyrics seem to be about how life is an ever ending cycle and he is begging for the power to burst through ignorance of mankind. He wishes for mankind to rediscover the true meaning of life, and end the ignorance of humanity.
