lyrics

Amidst the cosmos
stars glide
through glistening golden feathers

One of many,
it calls forth,
soon amassing an avian fleet

Obfuscate God’s light with their wings
Uproot mountains with their gales
Carve ancient stone with their talons
Deafen mankind with their wails

Lighter than silk, they majestically soar
above the cosmic bay
Their amber hues bleed onto planets
like dawn in summer
A black hole stomach engulfs each swallowed sun
in eternal night
Civilizations either worshiped them,
or knew enough to fear

Biology and theology meet halfway,
spawning entities defying explanation
Sentient races lack sufficient sentience
to gain hold of revelation
