I stand tall on a pillar of bones And I look towards the sky As magnificent wings tear open my back Emerging from my spine The splendour of these white feathers That I have been gifted for my efforts I will cherish them greatly For they are my new pride and joy
I spread my wings and look down These bones I stand proudly on The lives I've sacrificed for my lord I did everything I had to for this gift I have slaughtered my enemies I have slaughtered my friends I have even slaughtered my family All for the glory of my lord
I have assembled this tower of bones So I can become closer to my lord So I can bask in his grace So I too can become a god To swim through the skies And be free of the horrors of down below No sacrifice was too great for this moment I have finally broken free
I throw my body off of my pillar With my wings spread, I glide I soar through the skies with pride I flap my wings and begin to ascend But I notice that my wings start to feel heavy They start to grow stiff My wings are turning to stone... My wings are turning to stone!
Please, my lord, why is this happening!? I did everything for you! I gave you my entire life! Please, please, please, let me fly! I don't want to fall! I don't want to fall! I don't want to fall! I don't want to...
Regardless of my begging I plummet towards the ground Engulfed in a ball of flames I am an angel of stone Sent down to the ground so soft My impact will bring holy fire I am the divine intervention To bring an end to those who walk the same path I did.
