From 'By the Light of Their Destruction,' (c) 2019 NWN! Productions and Tranquility Base Publishing


A river of light that cuts the night and flows beneath the horizon
Ligurian Bodencus, the Padus of ancients, into the Euxine Sea
Dark waters Eridanus surge to stella lucida – al-Ahir, al-Nahr
Like the stars of heaven he shall shine - like the River of Night he shall flow


Where the Shining One, bold Phaeton fell, fearing the mighty scorpion sting
Nilus, Nerus, Amnis, Rex fluviorum, the River of Orion
His long fall blazed across the darkened heavens – burning, burning, burning
Like the fall of Lucifer, Phosphorous, Morning Star, bringer of light

A starry stream for this remnant Eridanus
That stream of tears beneath the gods’ feet is borne…
A starry stream for this remnant Eridanus
That stream of tears beneath the gods’ feet
Beneath the gods’ feet
Is borne…


from By the Light of Their Destruction, released May 21, 2019
