about

This song was inspired by the Digger movement of 17th century England. The Diggers were a group of radical Protestant peasants that, during the intense crisis of feudalism of the time, promoted a form of agrarian socialism, while defending the Commons against the enclosures enforced by the English state, a process that would play a key role in the birth of what we now recognize as capitalism. Although their resistance was eventually crushed, it's important that we recover such movements and the potentialities that they fought for.

lyrics

"truth appears in light,
falsehood rules in power
to see these things to be
is cause of grief each hour"

morals carved in stone
wither under the tide
entropy
eating from the inside

in the throes of progress
there is no life
synthetic light
illuminates the blind

old man you are falling behind
old man you are stuck in time
the old gods have abandoned you
the new ones have no use for you

"truth appears in light,
falsehood rules in power
to see these things to be,
is cause of grief each hour
Knowledge, why didst thou come,
to wound and not to cure?"

the owl of athena
spreads it's wings tonight
the burial ground
cries for more time

what a cruel joke
has time played on us
we sacrificed each other
now we watch it rust

what a cruel joke
has ambition played on us
we sacrificed each other
now prometheus laughs
