Severing the schism between earth and the stars,
welcoming observant eyes that watch from afar.
The maiden of the church ascended into a goddess of bloodshed,
by her beloved comrades she was woefully misled.
She protects the astral tower that reaches into the land of forbidden truth,
a cataclysmic rift inflicted upon unripened youth.
With a heavy heart she carried her sins,
the mistakes of her loved ones she held within.
Fear of the unknown evoked bitter rage,
mother nature's savagery had brought a resentful wage.
The corpse of the cosmic goddess should be left alone,
by spilling our blood, we can only hope to atone.
But the hatred of the stars runs deep,
inflaming the wounds we are forced to keep.
