about

The story of a fallen colossus, and its awakening.

lyrics

A slumbering colossus lies corrupted in the wake of the old ones
Still in its stead, the snow descends: frozen tears to lament his falling
And in the cold and still of the glade, a somber glow permeates the undertow

Vines etch deep into his spine
Ice seeps inward through the cracks
And fingertips outstretch through the seasonal leaves

Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder through the wild-wood
Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder, and arise
Shudder, my colossus
Shudder, and arise

In an ideal era, they ruled as one
In an age where the sun held itself high
Set among a backdrop of gleaming virginity
Some thought of themselves as divinity

Polearms reach out in combat
A gleam of silver in the dying light
A shout of victory, the lament of an age
The might of eons ends at last

Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder through the wild-wood
Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder, and arise
Shudder, my colossus
Shudder, and arise

In the dale, the summers pass, and ages wade by
Moss wears away at the varnished hide
Crickets jump through the grass and doves praise the passing
Of an age of silence and misery

Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder through the wild-wood
Shudder, my anointed one
Shudder, and arise
Shudder, my colossus
Shudder, and arise
