Look deep within yourself my friend
I know you see the shadows in your heart
I know you see the ash upon your soul
I know you see the evil of your spirit
Gaze long upon your people
I know you see their shame and failure
I know you see the wounds they caused
But I beg you to forgive them
The stars know they tried to save all life
But endangered all of space instead
Watch closely infinity
I know you see death where there once was life
I know you see coals where there once was fire
I know you see dusk where there once was dawn.
Stare far into the universe
I know you see how dark it is
Too cruel for life or death
I know you see how dead it is
No trace of life but blood upon times canvas.
I know you ask questions larger then eternity
What was the light dawn?
What was the flame of life?
What was the glory of the stars?
I cannot answer them, neither can I fathom them
I can only make one promise
One day the sky will turn red
And the hands of time shall move from zero to one
And the cosmos itself shall blaze with life once more
But never forget the chaos you see before you
or repeat the mistakes we made
And remember, not every soul can be rescued.
