“Fall of Earth City”
Artist: Hawkwind
Albums: Church of Hawkwind (1982)

News had drifted on the wind of many minds
That this was to be an occasion of great importance
For it was said by some that Earth City
Had somehow uncovered a single time sleeper from the time before

Although the cryptic writings upon his tomb
Were now faded beyond decipherable reading
It was said by the disembodied members of the ruling kind
That the entombed was from that time on Earth
Before the city stretched its metal web from pole to pole
Leaving green things only in the wells of immortal minds (immortal minds immortal minds ...)

Upon the third revolution after its arrival
The tomb that slept without life was removed for inspection
The day was programmed for a clear dome above
With a mild breeze wafting from the central weather post below

Throngs of class three occupants were gathering from various sectors to observe the opening
As per standard procedure their data input stations were fed appropriate propaganda
So that their reports would coincide with what the rulers had predetermined

And so it was upon that day of opening his spirit did appear
And confuse once again
It was evident to all that what lay within was not of mortal composure
Thoughts
Emanating from deep within its dimensionless cave
Conveyed this belief to all within the medi-dome

What is this apparition now amongst our kind?

Quickly
Thereafter all pressure was released from within the stillness
Earth City, unknowingly at that time, was about to enter a new phase of existence

Violent quaking began to shake the towers of Sector Sixty-Three
Manifestations of melting spread its wings over the structures
Until once again, ancient soil kissed the sky

And the beginning of the end swept all that was
Into its eternal grasp
