Mortal, spawn on the altar
Caught in the heart of the blaze
The primal fear of disappearing
Becoming a ghost in the void
Give a price, put a name
None of it real in this matter
Wandering, distracting,
Wishing the life of another self
We were born for one thing
Tame the greatest fear of all
We were born for one thing
Born to face the greatest fear of all
We’re all drawn into ourselves
In a collective coma
Remember gazing up for answers But now we’re staring down
All is blur in the maze we put an end to all
We were born for one thing
Tame the greatest fear of all
We were born for one thing
Born to face the greatest fear of all
We’re no one
When we’re gone
Music and Lyrics by Gojira
Produced by Joe Duplantier
Mixed by Andy Wallace

    Best of luck for the album. I remember listening to Magma in 2016-17, could've been better, liked and preferred the previous albums more I guess

    Congrats, you are the first of about 2k comments I read so far to contain something negative about gojira. Do you mind setting up an correct argument so your criticism can be called constructive?

    Sounds like made in some kind of Gojira app. Random Gojira-style riffs put into one. Nothing new since Magma

    A lot of new albums from great artists coming up and I'm pumped! It was fantastic to see you guys as an opener for Guns N' Roses in the Netherlands in 2018; sadly you didn't get the praise you deserve if you ask me. Boring crowd for sure...

    These lyrics are fucking deep. We are all one inifite being experiencing what it is like to have a finite existence. The human mind has a hard time wrapping itself around the idea of infinity or ceasing to exist, and people fear what they can't comprehend.

    I’m still discovering new shit in this banger with each listen... One that I just noticed is from 2:38 to 2:49: Joe growls “DOWN!” 4 times, with a lower pitch each time (and the last one’s utterly demonic). Fucking awesome stuff Gojira, I can’t wait to binge the rest of your new album!! 🤘
