Covenant: Final Man (1998)

Final Man

Broken buildings watching over flooded streets where nothing moves,
Shelters for the vultures hardly keeping daylight out.
Marble stained with rust faded paintings on the walls,
Beaten towers crumble haunted only by the wind.

I will live forever.
No angels left to hold me.
I will be the final man.

Picking up the given challenge of the fallen gargoyle angels,
Headed on collision course with martyrs tied as fenders.
Driving like a mad dog, going faster than a bullet,
Pulled by gravitation from a million tonnes of stone.

Human insects lived here crawling through the underground,
Beehive built in stainless, a cathedral for the slaves.
Spineless cowards guided by ideals they couldn't grasp,
Giving up their freedom in the hope of being chosen.

I will live forever.
No angels left to hold me.
I will be the final man.

In the twilight grows the shadows, hollow hand that tries to catch me.
Omens can not stop me because all the prophets died.
Like the ancient temples, their monument survived them.
Speeding through the ruins i left the bridges burning.

I will live forever.
No angels left to hold me.
I will be the final man.


Control

From the chosen path worlds pass in distant.
Ways once important now revealed as false.
Again the fear to go
And the longing for a home.

Like a filter always my own projections
On the things that i experience,
Trying to outrun
The stench of my decay.

Living within frames
My memories are frozen.
Falling apart
My brains are broken.

In the barren fields new domains unveil
Where every impresssion is a mountain to climb.
Put down my last defence,
Floating, feeling the flow...

Sometimes encounters, we touch like swords,
But as the warmth comes we fade.
Desires remaining unspoken,
The words are lost...
