The Song that started it all.

This is the Track that made me reconsider focusing on a traditional "Metal" act as my Musical priority.

Originally written for the classic Metal setup (Electric Guitar/Bass/Drums), it took on a new life after hearing it with Strings, and gave birth to what has now become "The Arcane Insignia" as we know it.


This city is on fire

It's civilization, poisoned finds

That no one I said no one will mind

Will it's ashes touch the sky?

Or will they disappear in the ocean now

The planets realign

Tell stories much too corrupt to be false

& I will read them in this temple

& I'll believe them in this temple

& set patterns in the sand

So future generations can repeat our mistakes somehow

The coal turns to diamonds

The serpents to swans

The Queen to goddess

& divided we'll be one

This thread is too thin to walk on

The experiment has failed

We are yes we're perfect now

There is no alternative

We must burn the scripts & rewrite history from our point of view

You will not find me, I said you will not find me

& I'll follow the trail of extinguished suns

so I can find you once I lose myself
