Allegaeon

"Extremophiles (B)"

[Verse 1]
I am exposed to elements known
To, in excess, destroy and dethrone
Total envelopment of
The system, resistant, suspended as stone

[Chorus 1]
From mountain heights to oceans of ice
Searing heat to arctic freeze, replacement of hydration is
Essential to life and so I thrive
Disordered proteins crystallize, converted cells now vitrified

[Verse 2]
Superimposed on top of my own
Regenesis, a genetic restructuring not ever seen
Before. I stand alone
A monument to obstruent adaptation
Cryptobiotic response

[Chorus 1]
From mountain heights to oceans of ice
Searing heat to arctic freeze, replacement of hydration is
Essential to life and so I thrive
Disordered proteins crystallize, converted cells now vitrified

[Chorus 2]
I survive
Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the key to eternal life

[Verse 3]
Dueling shadows of mystery gone
Congruent solutions, set the stage
A glimpse of what's to come
Will we decide? Be rid of this blight
Fear of death, sorrow, disease, escape or face the weakening
Our fading timeline to face genocide
A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi
Repair our structure or die

[Chorus 2]
I survive
Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the key to eternal life

[Bridge]
Encroaching our own hopelessness
We drift away toward

[Refrain]
I stare and burn my eyes out
Fate calls, do we answer or not?
Chance to learn from life smaller yet
More resilient than ours

[Guitar solo 1: Greg Burgess]
[Guitar solo 2: Michael Stancel]

[Refrain]
I stare and burn my eyes out
Fate calls, do we answer or not?
Chance to learn from life smaller yet
More resilient than ours

[Chorus 2]
Immortality realized
I survive
Moving ever forward
To the precipice of time
Holding the key to eternal life

[Outro]
I survive
Immortality realized
Metamorphosis impedes on new horizons
Holding the key to eternal life
