Terminus means "the end or extremity of anything."

This song adds nothing new to the story. Instead, it references each song in the story so far. This could be interpreted as a reflection on where the character has gone so far, or it could just be a recap of the story.

Story Overview Edit

Introspection, maybe?

Story Details Edit

Breathe the air of this modern world

[Pray to the Winds, same sentence]

The scattered seeds have sown a generation

[Anti-Theist: "scatter the mortal seeds and sow a failed generation"]

Whose evolution is both body and mind
 
I see a world destined to leave its imprint upon the stars

[Non Serviam: "I see a world destined to fall beneath me]

Condemning their past to the blackness of space

[Internecion: "condemning all to immolation"]

This future empire will never find the books that enslave

[The Iron Law: "Future empires will never find the books designed to enslave the mind"]

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods

[Conqueror: "Generation of conflict conditioned to conquer the stars; a revolution of freedom born to conquer the gods"]

We assemble among these stars as brothers, not tyrants

[Andromeda: "assembled in dead stars"]

We are finally free from gods

[Andromeda, same sentence.]

None shall obey or kneel before any god

[Asterion: "all shall obey and kneel before your new god"]

We can now see
This future form as reality

[Interregnum: "we refused to see the future form that we could be"]

Our voices are carried off in the wind
Into a distant sky, to be spoken again

[Imperialus: "pages of the skin, carried off in the wind...]

We shall not bear the weight of our past
Nor inject ourselves with its poison

[No direct quote from Anathema, however it seems pretty clear that Anathema is about the darkness of that past]

There is no place for faith
There is no reason to hate

[Catechism: "Bound by your faith, instilled by your hate"]

Arise from your knees
There is no use to pray

[Catechism: "You deserve nothing more than this moment to pray"]

Our voices, carried off in the wind
Into a distant sky
Open your eyes
For we have redefined heaven

[Elephtheria: "My eyes have opened, building this world we will redefine heaven]

This final empire
This last horizon

[Empyrean, exact same words]

A simple glance upward was all we needed

[Infineon: "A simple glance upward is all I need"]

Lyrics Edit

Breathe the air of this modern world
The scattered seeds have sown a generation
Whose evolution is both body and mind

I see a world destined to leave its
imprint upon the stars
Condemning their past to the blackness of space
This future empire will never find
the books that enslave

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods

We assemble among these stars
as brothers, not tyrants
We are finally free from gods

None shall obey or kneel before any god
We can now see
This future form as reality

Our voices are carried off in the wind
Into a distant sky, to be spoken again

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods

We shall not bear the weight of our past
Nor inject ourselves with its poison

There is no place for faith
There is no reason to hate

Arise from your knees
There is no use to pray

Our voices, carried off in the wind
Into a distant sky
Open your eyes
For we have redefined heaven

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods

We assemble among these stars
as brothers, not tyrants
We are finally free from gods

None shall obey or kneel before any god
We can now see
This future form as reality

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods
We assemble among these stars
as brothers, not tyrants

This final empire
This last horizon
A simple glance upward was all we needed

We were born to conquer the stars
This freedom will conquer the gods
We assemble among these stars
as brothers, not tyrants
