lyrics

Ein Psalm Salomos, den Weltraumfahrern zu singen.

Into the bleakest of voids
where all light is swallowed
we drift through the relicts of time
the ancients to follow.
and rise to the borders of space
earth left vast and hollow.

As we sank in the dust
of the deserts of moon
we drank the sun we worshipped
and ate the skies we reached.

When the stars up above never seemed to come nearer
we were boiling in our blood
haunted and ridden by fears.
nomads of existence, driven by visions of God
guided by idols of terror
that mark our way to extinction.

All wrapped in rags
the old man plays
a tune on his bony harp.
mirthless and dark.
grief and dementia
glint in his eye:

„All life is drowned,
measured by HIM!
pale minds reach out
and praise the King!
From Pluto’s grounds
to Saturn’s rings
the sweetest song
that men could sing.”

The king’s holy temple’s been burned
his spirit still wails at the wall.
Galilei’s moon has been smirched
no beacons there left to fall.
light years behind the sun
further we drift into the unknown.
reminiscent light that derides
laughs at the ones still seeking.

Far from redemption
all journeys end.
The black space echoes
our signals sent.
illumination!
mercyless death.
encrusted bodies
All systems red.
