Track Name: The Great Excursion I (Subterranea)
In narrow passages
I wander in silence
Shadows subjugating
The last remaining light

Circumventing my will
To keep on going
I'm strong in spirit
But weak in flesh

Suddenly I witness
An alteration from above
A voice detached from
The being that is me

Mankind
Shepherds of deception
Unveil
Their hybrid nature
Track Name: The Great Excursion II (Realm of Contaminated Light)
Desolate geometric shapes
The breeding grounds of man
Spreading like putrid parasites
On the face of the earth

Can you feel it in the air, now?
They think they've always been here
A world that is forever, broken
Let's create something new

Hearing the words
of this cosmic being
I begin to wonder
About the meaning of existence
The voice of nature, am I
Let's create a new beginning
Is this what your heart, desires?
Let's design something new
Track Name: The Great Excursion III (Demise)
Bringing the landscape
Into a dilapidated state
Crushing mountains with
Cosmic energy

The history of man
Under the unmaking
Before my eyes I see
Feeble attempts of survival

Nothing is left on the face of the earth

The new beginning on
Earth has arrived
A hope for a better future
Without humanities control

The graciousness of nature
Could take no more
The human race paid
Their debt in blood

Power
Overflowing
The earth can take no more

The new beginning on earth has arrived
A hope for a better future without humanities control

Shadows subjugating
The last remaining light
Measureless, limitless
Vast destruction

Interplanitary chain reaction
The galaxy could take no more

We thought we could change it all.
A hope for a better future is forever lost.

Only darkness Remains
