Music inspired by Chrono Cross. Lyrics inspired by the Tower of Babel in Xenogears.


It's time to go up for another routine maintenance
inside a crowded elevator to the angled lens.
We climb up higher suddenly a blast vibrates the cage.
The lights go out, the elevator stops, and all we hear is a...

12 engineers in a panicky darkness
listen to explosions and regret having done this.
Crawl through the vents and emerge in the sector
where the arm connects to a giant reflector.
I see no other way we can escape this.
Scale the outer wall. It's a risk but we'll take it.
There's no time to stand here and contemplate.
Climb onto the arm when it all of a sudden activates.

Don't look out beyond the blue.
Just hold onto the metal right in front of you.
The mirror reflects all of the blue
along with energy weapons' fire back at you.
Angels rage across the blue.
Machines controlled by God. There is nothing we can do.

I said it should not be done but no one would agree.
Build a tower up to Heaven but God wants his privacy.

12 engineers on a giant reflector
all betrayed their god and are without a protector.
Halfway to Heaven and surrounded by explosions.
Wouldn't be here now had someone seconded my motion.
Suddenly, the mirror starts tilting.
Sacrifice us to save their own filthy...
Blast to the lens disrupts their generators.
Falling to our deaths, we'll still meet our creator.

Falling from the Tower of Babel, we'll still meet our creator.
