Mountains that would block the sun
Leave the land in dusk till dawn
The withering of hope's last leaf
Signifies the decline

Beasts circling, sensing prey
Smelling turmoil and dismay
Carrion assemble just in time
Just in time for the feast

Unable to tell night from day
Those cast in shadow start to pray
Believing to be last in line
The chopping block so far away

She seems to be fast asleep
Somber and black
Is this death or just a dream?

Delusion takes control
Obscure the truth within the fold
The brightest light that shines above us
Enveloped by this hole

Gazing up searching for light
Lost inside this raging blight
The last sun that set upon this land
Would be our final peace

Left behind these husks remain
Casting shadows upon the plain
The maw of death hath opened up
Its voracity won't feed to glut

Cry out to the void, wait endlessly for a reply
Waste away day in day out barely kept alive
It was on that day thousands of years ago
The light left never to return to this fragile world

The answers aren't forthcoming,
but perhaps that is answer enough.
Did we deserve this?
Perhaps this is what's left, and all there'll ever be

Mountains that had blocked the sun
Left our land in dusk till dawn
Long ago hope's leaf withered and dried up

Though one day the sun would rise
And cause the filth to raise their eyes
In the spring time the flowers bloom once more,
But they're bleeding inside

Is this somber dream a shade darker than...
