about

I wrote this song several years ago, and have changed the lyrics many times! It was amazing to hear it transform after Timo got a hold of it and made it so heavy. This is one of the more progressive songs on the album. The lyrical theme has to do with lost civilizations such as Pompeii, Atlantis, and many others that have been either destroyed or suddenly submerged underwater. As usual, I like to contrast things of the past with the present, so I am inspired by the metaphorical implications in our modern society as well. I hope you enjoy this track!

lyrics

Don't wait for my return
I'll enter the highlands

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Deep, deep, ocean, deep
Silent souls, you do keep
Did you know, did you foresee?
Where did you go? Eternity...

Sweet aroma of soul incense
When mountains devour minds in a trance
Sweeter promises of deliverance
This poison in their veins
Perpetual death within their own chains

Don't wait for my return
I'll enter the highlands
These ancient stones are crying out
Breaking the silence

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Always looking for the day
For the messenger
Always looking away
Into mortal exile

You will always leave them speechless and trembling
You will always shake the fear inside, so horrifying
You will always take them by surprise, in silence
Erasing history, and drowned into the sea...

So lost! Souls taught
Souls lost! So caught

Deep, deep, ocean, deep
Silent souls, you do keep
Did you know, did you foresee?
Where did you go? Eternity...
