They have blown away the daylight hours we had
Left a legacy, a deadly aftermath
We cannot exist in godforsaken lands
As we spiral down into oblivion
Breathing the fumes of fires that they ignite
Losing ground and we are all just losing sight
We shall never see another setting sun
Time to rise up and ascend, the end has come

No more willpower
Choked by hell fire
Darkness above
Blackening out the sun
Gripped by steel claws
Corrosion eating us

So before we're all devoured
Time to rise up and retire
In cathedral spires
Watching as the world expires
From up amongst the clouds
In cathedral spires

No names
No graves
No prayers
Can save us

Ashes to dust
Doomsday's upon us now

It cannot be stopped
Genocide all is lost

Oh! We're so tired
Time to rise up and conspire
In cathedral spires
Watching as our world expires
From up above the clouds
In cathedral spires

Jaws of corruption
Swallow us as one
Consuming every nation
Evoke resistance getting none
Complete disintegration
No good to defend
There can be but one outcome
We are no more - ascend

Vaporized fury
Offers no sanctuary

Oh! We're so tired
Time to rise up and retire
In cathedral spires
Watching as the world expires
From up amongst the clouds
In cathedral
In cathedral spires

Oh! We're so tired
Watching the world expire
Time that we retire
Up in cathedral spires

Oh! We're so tired
Watching the world expire
Time that we retire
Up in cathedral spires

Oh! We're so tired
Watching the world expire
Time that we retire
Up in cathedral spires

Oh! We're so tired
Watching the world expire
Time that we retire
Up in cathedral spires
