The Sacrament Lyrics – Becoming the Archetype

YouTube video

Pre-Chorus:
Though your failures bind you
This death will not define you

Chorus:
Rise, renew
Extract the water from the body
Drink, consume
Absorb the life within the blood
Move, regain
New life to animate the flesh
Go and reclaim the planet

Verse 1:
They took his life in a jealous rage
He exposed their inadequacies
And shined a light upon their failures
Unblemished flesh a painful reminder

Pre-Chorus:
Though your failures bind you
This death will not define you
This death will not define you

Chorus:
Rise, renew
Extract the water from the body
Drink, consume
Absorb the life within the blood
Move, regain
New life to animate the flesh
Go and reclaim the planet
Go and reclaim the planet

Verse 2:
Retrieved the capsule from the ocean’s grasp
Co-opted systems to complete their task
They laid his corpse inside the metal frame
Connected tubes and wires to the lifeless veins

Verse 3:
Not a single drop reclaimed was wasted
And when the sacrament was finished
The capsule closed and began to rise
Pierced the clouds and completely vanished

Bridge:
Veiled in obscurity
Hope was gone
The soul displaced
Clothed in his purity
A new day dawns
The past erased

Verse 4:
It was a strange and dreadful strife
The day that life and death contended
The victory remained with life
The reign of death was ended
The ancient writing plainly says
Death is swallowed up in death
Now its sting is lost forever
Now its sting is lost forever

Chorus:
Rise, renew
Extract the water from the body
Drink, consume
Absorb the life within the blood
Move, regain
New life to animate the flesh
Go and reclaim the planet
Go and reclaim the planet
Go and reclaim the planet
Go and reclaim the planet
