about

Apotheosis is the Greek term for a mortal rising to godhood. Transcending mankind and becoming something greater. A metaphor for life, a metamorphosis from child to adult.

The idea for this song came to me while I was playing an independent video game on PS4 called, Apotheon. In which you are a Greek soldier betrayed by the gods, and you go on a tirade taking down each deity one by one, and becoming king of the gods yourself.

I also liken it to the God of War franchise in which a mortal man, Kratos, is tricked into killing his own family, by the Greek god of war, Ares. Kratos sets out to avenge the betrayal enacted by the mad god and eventually becomes a god in his own right.

lyrics

Primal instinct drives me to your cause.
Source of power and my greatest flaws.
Deep inside your genome I will dwell.
You will know my pain and fear me well.

I am everything you’ll ever need.
Ambrosia of life, embrace the creed.
Power of the ancients rape my soul!
Unbecoming wretch achieves it’s goal.

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your god!
Now speak my name!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your God!
I take my reign!

Apotheosis!
Apotheosis!

Apotheosis is now complete.
Master and creator at last meet.

Deception the being’s greatest trait.
Of no use to this God I now rape!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your god!
Now speak my name!

I am your consciousness.
I am your pain.
I am your God!
I take my reign!
