about

Two dead flowers fallen from my hand
Buried underground; Swiftly carried away by a cold wind.

How do we know who we are?
All the mirrors have shattered.
Constant ripples in the pool:
Everything I know has scattered.
Please bring me back. Please Bring me home.
Carry me through this darkness.
Carry me through the unknown.

There's nothing more important.

Let it hang through the air.
Let it consume all that you know.
I'll listen to the fanfare:
The Anthem of those below.

Your sins cannot be forgiven.
You are guilty of your crimes.
Your punishment will match that of your actions.
A disgrace to all mankind.
Your crimes cannot be forgiven.
You're guilty of your sins.
Your punishment will match that of your actions:
Your sins.

Walk with me on this march of flame.
I will guide you to your pit of shame.
So walk with me on this endless march of flame.
I will guide you down into the depths of your
Pit of shame.

Ill Guide you there; Guide you through.

All those connected by the tragedy
Bringing together humanity.
The collaborative lives of those affected.
My dedication to the ones unprotected.

It just goes to show that you never truly know
how many are affected by a single life.
One person alone touching the lives:
The lives of thousands.

How do we know who we are?
All the mirrors have shattered.
Constant ripples in the pool:
Everything I know has scattered.
(Farewell)
Please bring me back. Please Bring me home.
(My last so-long: Farewell)
Carry me through this darkness.
Carry me through the unknown.

GOODBYE

Just remember:
There's nothing more important
in this world than the lives that you touch.
NOTHING more important than the lives that you touch.
