Lyrics inspired by Walter M. Miller Jr.'s "A Canticle for Leibowitz."


The keepers of the ancient secrets
Alchemists and knowledge seekers
History in broken pieces
Divine gifts to guide and teach us

History will be repeated
The rise before the fall
The circle of life

(Whoa-oh) Progress claims a victory
(Whoa-oh) Proclaim the new world order far and near!
(Whoa-oh) Fall down on your knees believe!
(Who-oh) The truth incarnate man-made deity!

The fool upon the hill is weeping
For the sick, the lame, the beaten
A wisdom tooth impacted bleeding
Rip it out and start believing



Change will come with upheaval and fear
As the enlightenment draws near
The pendulum of our own mad clockwork
We are helpless to halt its swing




from Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, released October 7, 2016
