Story Overview Edit

Story Details Edit

The worlds that we seed will fall like the leaves from a dying tree
Cursed by the breeze

This is an analogy for humanity, war, and civilization. The leaves falling from the tree are the worlds humans inhabit. The breeze that blows the leaves from the dying tree is war. The dying tree is humanity itself.

Lyrics Edit

Cursed be the ones who believe in the fantasy we call peace
Bound by machines I am forced to believe that what I see is the end of a breed
When will we see that the worlds that we dream and desperately seek
Will never come to be as long as we spread like disease
The machine hear it sing Like an anvil made of Cepheon steel Astrea let the hammer fall Its call will be heard by all The only true destiny to find peace will be found in eternal sleep Our fate destined to be absorbed by the stars Consumed by entropy If only the dead could see what these worlds have come to be they'd close their eyes And return to sleep
The worlds that we seed will fall like the leaves from a dying tree Cursed by the breeze When will we see that the worlds that we dream and desperately seek Will never come to be as long as we spread like disease The machine hear it sing Like an anvil made of Cepheon Steel Astrea let the hammer fall Its call will be heard by all The only true destiny to find peace will be found in eternal sleep Our fate destined to be absorbed by the stars Consumed by entropy If only the dead could see what these worlds have come to be they'd close their eyes And return to sleep
