about

Long ago, the city of Atlantis uses its robot colossus to defend itself from various conquering armies. In a time of peace, a scheming politician becomes wary of the automaton's might and decrees that he should be dismantled and buried at sea. Centuries later, Atlantis is under attack and the city fathers re-animate their watery golem in desperation. To their chagrin, he has not forgotten his betrayal at the hands of his charges. In revenge, he destroys the city before being evaporated by the midday sun.

lyrics

i am the aquanaut asleep beneath the waves
i drank that bitter cup that put me in my grave
inside this bathysphere my soul has turned to rust
from phoenix flame to ash, from angel wing to dust

they dredged the wine-black sea in search of all my bones
over the centuries my flesh had turned to stone
colossus that i was, they tore me limb from limb
rebuilt in chthonic halls, i finally walk again

the blazing sun evaporates me
throw my bones back into the sea
Atlantis seeks to know her destroyer
revenant of her champion warrior
