And Darkness Shall Fall Upon The World.

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.
