This track's imagery came from a dream about the spiritually enslaved condition of mankind. "Black Cathedral" is a literary allusion to the supernatural underwater ruins in Philip K. Dick's book "Galactic Pot Healer."
We come from the future
Beyond the shores of a deep black lake.
To end the reign of the Demiurge
And release the light of a billion souls.
Break into the continuum,
Through the maws of Cronus we infiltrate.
Liberate our brothers who've fallen asleep
In the depths of a deep black hole.
They smile in false sunlight, everything's okay...
But little did they know their bodies were lying
At the bottom of a deep black lake.
Quarantined from eternity,
They slumber bound by the chains of fate.
Entombed in illusion, confusion, and pain
Dead men dreaming they're wide awake.
Into the realm of oblivion,
Beneath the waters of a deep black lake
They spiral round and around to the sound
Of a black cathedral's cursed refrain.
How many fears must we overcome,
Before we awaken from delirium?
