I stand upon the distant shore
With blackness up above
Shaken to my inner core
Bereft of all but love
I stand and watch the world go by
I wondered what I'd lost
When every sun and moon must die
But with a dreadful cost
Mother Nature grows aware
She struggles in her sleep
We plunder and strip Her bare
Our vows we do not keep
God above looks down in ire
Blackened clouds abound
It was He who promised fire
The Wheel of Fate comes round.
