Babylon

There they stood,

the man containing the Core of the universe

and the man dressed in white showing but one inhumane eye,

gazing upon the rising tower of metal.

The pinnacle of man’s race –

When the sun rose to wake another day
they were gone, gone without a trace
Babylon, craving in lucidity
Babylon, the fire will remain

And the sun razes from their memory
What the dark had cyphered in the sky
And the flame’s burning their lucidity
Babylon, rise up to the night

Oh, let us wander
let us wander between the worlds
We override their principles
Abrogate horizons
Abandon mental gravity
Oh, we overrule the eye
Compromise your sanity
To heaven
To hell

– F H Hakansson

Partial lyrics from Avantasia – Stargazers.
