This track begins with a spoken word segment expressing the thoughts of the main character as he achieves Apotheosis, or becoming a god. After months of deliberation on how to become a celestial being, the character ultimately realizes that he must leave a world ridden with disease, hatred, and many other societal issues in order to become divine. The character kills himself and vows to cleanse the world of all that plagues it.


A transition, so now I know what waits for me.
To give my body up is to fulfill my destiny
Why didn't you say so?
I would have left sooner,
Tell me does my suffering appease your sense of humor?

Hello? Hello?
Your creation's right here dying.
In this frigid, freezing alleyway
Bleeding out more than I'm trying.
And I won't suffer further, I see the vast horizon.
A supernova, running over, that I'm recognize.

So, I leave behind all great intentions.
My future lies beyond.
The physicalities beyond the ghost
That will be reminesced and vaguely remembered.
Vaguely remembered.
I've found the eternal dawn of what this young man perceives to become.

I've seen what this world has to offer.
Hatred, suffering, and malice decreed.
I will not stand idly by.
I shall become divine and cleanse the world.

No mother to miss me, I part with the earth.
Going to father to father, my holy ghost.
Will you pray to me?
Or follow your own dreams.

Open your mind and think with your eyes.
Only your purpose remains unseen.
Your purpose remains unseen.

Open your mind and think with your eyes.
Only believe in ambition and drive.
