Quote

 

They buried a well where

the seven fell

Our volunteers die by

machine and living doors

lie unforeseen now

 

Seal him in

Believe in

Project a means to an end

(What he breaks

we will mend)

He’ll keep it all for him

Imagine every answer

with no one in his way

Dividing as he conquers

We’ll send him far away from

Ad te omnis caro veniet

 

Spin around

and around

and around

and around

underground

In river

he drowns

By storm

he is bound

Spin around

STOP

 

We’re running from

becoming one

We carve it out of stone

Our destiny to die

 

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

We’re coming home

unless it means

we are alone

 

We buried it well

no revealing tell

where the horns above

impale the sky

Forsaken born

thorn in our side

 

Warn no one

No warning

Our memory just

fades away

(and the worn

wears away)

 

We’ll keep it all for us

Imagine every answer

with no one in our way

Dividing as we conquer

And end up far away from

Dies irae,

dies illa solvet

 

Cycle on

Saeclum

Cyclone

Circling

Circuit down

In river

we drown

(By storm

 we are bound)

(Shut down

down)

STOP

 

running from

becoming one

You carve it out of stone

Your mystery to live and die

 

You are alone

You are alone

Become the one

and find someone to

end the waiting

 

Given within a martyr

that we made

(Dies in vain)

Riven within a gift of

rending pain

Endless skein

 

Unwind

(Dissolve in

deep unknown)

leaving well alone

No one knows

(And nothing will

grow now)

And no one’s here

so no more fear

 

We run away from

(a way of running)

We are alone

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

 

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

Are we alone?

We alone

All alone

We’re alone

 

Can’t run or breathe

Why can’t I see

How can it begin to be

dark and leave us all

Alone

 

And are we

Alone

Are we

We are

We all

die

Alone

Still being unknown to the new story, I think this song is about the forgotten heroes, their souls condemned to the Dark Aether.

I am unsure where 'the Seven' refers to, but I feel like their fall stands for Primis/Ultimis fall into the Dark Aether, thereby sealing it's enterance. The Aether was thought to be locked, therefore the well was buried, the well in which they fell.

 

That, or it is about the Apothicons (notice the "we") trapped in the Dark Aether.

 

Just some ramnling. Who is "He"?

The "well" is a metaphor for Knowledge (i.e. Mimir's Well, Pierian Spring, etc). Primis and Ultimis' sacrifices buried knowledge of all of things relating to the old world, it being "buried with them". The reason for seven and not eight is because "Eddy" survives, he is Richtofen's soul.

"That would be...us." 

 

In that case it would technically be the six that fell, no?

 

Alternatively, Nikolai survived his gunshot because Samantha used a Welling, the weakest gun in Zombies and was corrupted by the Dark Aether as it does to all amidst his guilt of deception, betrayal and agony he inflicted upon his "friends".

The seven could include Victis and the Primis/Ultimis are one entity, perhaps?

Also, you're working under the assumption that it's literal, which I don't think is ever a good idea when you're dealing with what is essentially poetry - try thinking of Eddie as Richtofen's "legacy".
