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


Transcendent - resplendent, emblems of death and glory
A vision spanning the ages, inspiring awe and fear
Illuminate - celebrate symbolic fires of antiquity
Allegories of faith, virtuous beauty, deformed vice
Iconologia - oracle of the deathless
Once hewn in granite with sightless eyes
Cast into the heavens and frozen among the stars
Now suspended in ashes, dried upon the page

Allegories of faith, virtuous beauty
Sacred oracles with enigmas

Steady gaze down the corridors of time
Constant light of wisdom unceasing
Unchanged by time, their truths confirmed
And in the flesh, the cycle of sin and salvation
So, in man, the measure of all things
From enigma is drawn the mind's diversion
A union of the essential with the tribal
The way of the world and the folly of man


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