Oh where to begin? We were buried in sin…
For our guilt and our pride, all that's sacred has died,
And despair has corrupted this place;
We laid waste to this land, our fall caused by our hand,
What we thought was a stride was disgrace.
[forgive us, my friend, this should never have been]
With the darkening skies, came the sorrowful cries,
Of the lost and most broken of men;
Still the last of their screams, drift away with my dreams,
Of the lost and most shattered of them.
[and there was silence in the end]
And they say no one knows, reasons nothing here grows,
Why we’re shrouded in darkness and death;
And they say it's the end, it's too late to amend,
Still I'll try with the last of my breath.
[and the world was peaceful at the end]
Watch it all fade away, and look back towards the day;
We were lost, all was lost, and the world burned away.
Watch it all turn to dust, as we all know it must;
I have lost, we have lost, for our sins we shall pay...
And the world was peaceful at the end--
And there was silence in the end.
