When the dreamers wake,

What will they see?

The World stays the same.

Fighting against fate, fighting for change,

They spent their lives, pursuing their dreams.

When their weapons break, they use their body.

When their legs break, they shall crawl.

Their voices, loud and brave shall echo through the vast plane.

Enduring and persevering despite the odds,

They sought to shake the world from its foundation,

They sought to carry the world upon their shoulders.

They will run to the ends of the Earth,

Chasing the Sun and the promise of day.

Unrelenting and never-resting.

Only to be left behind in perpetual night.

As the light of hope dimmed in the distance,

They shall finally see the End...

The End to their life-long dream.

With silver hair and a broken heart,

They trudged on towards the moonlight...

When the dreamers wake,

What will they see?

The World stays the same.
