The harvester reaps
Your hopes and dreams, then leaves,
Your life is left in ruins.

The harvester reaps
Your hopes and dreams, then leaves,
Your life is left in ruins.

Slashing with his scythe
As though cutting down wheat,
Harvesting people's souls.

Like the Grim Reaper
He takes away all goodness,
Leaving only husks.

The Once-Were people
Were his scythe's victims,
No longer really human.

Harvesting our hopes
Till all our dreams are nightmares,
Life's promises gone.

Walking crouched over
Shoulders dropped as we're going,
Through our lonely lives.

Still the Harvester
Reaps our souls for mementos,
Of his dreadful work.
