lyrics

Whitened bones in gleaming sepulcher shift in shadow
Afterlife animate cut to wood and wander the earth
Recomposed with parable sinews, resumed life frozen on paper
Clinched in diabolic resolve to strike fear in the living

Bones of all men, Totentanz to trumpet and drum
Ossuary, necropolis, stalagmites, eternal darkness
Bones of all men outlast the memory of their flesh
The bones of all men!

Death – Imperator – astride his decaying horse
Richly adorned with herald banners flowing in the stench-filled wind
Man, woman and child - equal in his abysmal black eyes
Putrid blast from his horn proclaims another’s end
Above the tepid moonlight filters the stars dim
Across this city of the dead – celebration – as numbers swell
Winged hourglass cut above every door and passage
Winged skull lifting mortality beyond its own death

Bones of all men, Totentanz to trumpet and drum
Ossuary, necropolis, stalagmites, eternal darkness
Bones of all men outlast the memory of their flesh
The bones of all men!

Oh human, consider from where you come and what you are now and what you will become in time...
