We come from the future Beyond the shores of a deep black lake. To end the reign of the Demiurge And release the light of a billion souls.
Break into the continuum, Through the maws of Cronus we infiltrate. Liberate our brothers who've fallen asleep In the depths of a deep black hole.
They smile in false sunlight, everything's okay... But little did they know their bodies were lying At the bottom of a deep black lake.
Quarantined from eternity, They slumber bound by the chains of fate. Entombed in illusion, confusion, and pain Dead men dreaming they're wide awake.
Into the realm of oblivion, Beneath the waters of a deep black lake They spiral round and around to the sound Of a black cathedral's cursed refrain.
How many fears must we overcome, Before we awaken from delirium?

The imagery was inspired by a dream I had, as well as Philip K. Dick's book "Galactic Pot Healer." In the dream, people were hanging out in a sunny resort town doing leisure activities. I took a detour and stumbled upon a dark swamp with a deep black lake surrounded by tall gray trees. Something took me to the bottom of the lake and there I saw the same people from earlier, naked and chained to the lakebed, barely kept alive in state of suspended animation by breathing tubes. This symbolized the spiritual condition of humanity, slumbering in the depths of oblivion while dreaming they're living the "good life." At the end of the dream, I cut people loose but not all had enough air in their lungs to survive the trip to the surface.
