"What interests me is the transformation, not the monument. I don't construct ruins, but I feel ruins are moments when things show themselves. A ruin is not a catastrophe. It is the moment when things can start again." Anselm Kiefer

Track Name: Visions Of Purple And Gold
A vision of purple and gold
has saturated my eyes
i've foreseen the future
and forgotten he past

A Vision of things that won't last
has darkened the white in my eyes
i've seen your destiny
i've seen your culture die

a moment of bliss emerged
in purple and gold
when nothing mattered
when i was soft as a snake

A vision of purple and gold
i've seen you die
i've seen you resurrect

A vision of purple and gold
looking in the eyes of the divine snake
