"THE CULLING (performed by Dr. Aesh): Frightened to the core, Nighthawk volunteers his surrender, ignoring Osira's urgent pleas to stay and find some means of fighting. To this, Dr. Aesh and Osirah observe Nighthawk's apprehension on a phalanx of security monitors, only to see him murdered by 'The X + I' without reserve. Realizing his grave mistake, Dr. Aesh sacrifices his own being by handing to Osirah a lone means of escape." (ATUM story notes)

 

Lyrics

With fortune I'll live
With fever we will hive
Through pleasant plunder
In iron I 'came forged
To bind-sooth
With rockets on easy
High disc aglow
A violence swells in tow
Volunteers
Summon here where atum's renewed
And tell your unders
God ascends exhumed

Avalon
So bid, so long
Avalon
So bid, so long
Held
As held in farewell
Held
As held in farewell
