Why can't we hear
The time must come for us to leave
Here emotion has withered away
Our burnt out love has decayed
Obsessed to leave the Earth
Tragedy has overrun since birth

Now our righteous fathers weep
As the great eternal sleep
Are me born to pass away

Cry at all that remains
Chosen words fail to substance
The wisdom of powers heard
In dismal thoughts seemingly absurd

Now as hope and glory dies
We'll scream at our demise
Are we lost forever more
