lyrics

Hear them cry as they run from shelter
“Three cheers for the rising sun”
Down below as billions swelter
No, you’re not the only one

Far away from the world of nighttime
Farther than the eye can spy
Tellus looms ever closer
To the fire in the sky

Watch them burn as they slumber
Grateful for a quick release
As the world hurtles towards madness
Maybe now they will find peace

At long last Conflagration
Watch as the Cities burn
Millions pray for the falling Darkness
Now the Earth has ceased to turn

From on High comes the Order
To the Hand that wields the Gun
Fight til death as you guard the border
To the Land of the Setting Sun

War has breached the boiling seas
Underneath the burning skies
Pregnant with a vast disease
Earthbound Suns begin to rise

Staring mutely down from space
Other minds might think it odd
How a World so far from Grace
Could come to meet their God
