lyrics

Imagine it, the cathedral, all Vienna sitting there
in that silence, a divine music
bursts out over them all
a great mass of death,
composed by his devoted friend.
What depth, what passion, what sublimity!
When god forsakes a man, the depths he will descend.
Touched by god at last
with this death mass
what depth, what passion, what sublimity!
with this death mass
touched by god at last
stolen from a dead man’s hands.
Enraptured by his music
came a sound only I could hear.
The voice of his father, never sated,
haunting him from the grave,
and the germ of a plan infected my soul.
A way to draw upon his genius,
and drive him to his death;
terrifying and wonderful.
When god forsakes a man
judas extends a hand.
When god forsakes a man,
his beloved champion
Will meet his end
In salieri’s plan.
