He sits upon his ebon throne
Which no man has seen and survived the vision
Both blind and bereft of mind
And the notes that rise and fall in measured patterns
Ever calculating in sound the structure of space and time
Were his flute ever to suddenly fall silent
And the myriads of worlds
As they were before creation
The flute of the blind idiot
Combinations

No destruction without creation
To unmake a thing is to make another
Another is destroyed
[solo: Dallas]
The idiot god on his black throne
What shall rise into being
He cares only to maintain
Random creation and destruction
No living creature can look upon his face
And black radiance
Which strike and burn the skin
Gaze into the countenance of the idiot god
Never does he receive supplicants
Nor does he ever hear prayers or answer them
And endlessly he devours his own substance
As he consumes his own wastes after the custom of idiots
As the god creates

He sits upon his ebon throne
Which no man has seen and survived the vision
Both blind and bereft of mind
And the notes that rise and fall in measured patterns
Ever calculating in sound the structure of space and time
Were his flute ever to suddenly fall silent
And the myriads of worlds
As they were before creation
The flute of the blind idiot
Combinations

No destruction without creation
To unmake a thing is to make another
Another is destroyed
[solo: Dallas]
The idiot god on his black throne
What shall rise into being
He cares only to maintain
Random creation and destruction
No living creature can look upon his face
And black radiance
Which strike and burn the skin
Gaze into the countenance of the idiot god
Never does he receive supplicants
Nor does he ever hear prayers or answer them
And endlessly he devours his own substance
As he consumes his own wastes after the custom of idiots
As the god creates
