From forever, grain by unending grain Existence is formed Between exhalation, before observation, all is reticent Brought to silence by the darkness, absence, indifference In time, man will come and with it the suffering of all existence Forged and endured In time, man will come to spread its woe All is distance, abandon All is absence, indifference

Finite moments, finite breath, wasted Embracing a reason bereft of conclusion When knowledge is misconceived as meaning, wisdom as purpose We embrace a world that offers no hope Born unto death Recycle; repeat Until the end, adrift And nothing Nothing And in our search, we abandoned faith And in our reaching, we found truth Hope turned to ash, carried by the winds of change We wrought to choke the world in our despair No future but nothing And in our search, we abandoned hope And in our reaching, we found truth Hope turned to ash, carried by the winds of change We wrought to choke the world in our despair Despair On this day, we wake to a barren world Relentless grey In our knowledge, we have exhausted meaning Human kind has crossed the line of despair All that's left is meaningless

Void, nothing beyond but the past Unredeemable, the embrace of time Wither and grey We gaze at long dead stars and the gulf is indifferent to our isolation The grains of our being, carried away by the passage of time Every moment is forever, buried and building No breath can be redeemed Present and future exists in unredeemable past Future is forfeit Buried by the past Void, nothing beyond but the past Unredeemable, the embrace of time Wither and grey Condemned to stare into the past Condemned to become the past

No future but nothing Nothing beyond but the past Victims to time, carried across the line of despair The expanse will come to its end As all that comes to be must find its close But what meaning does cessation carry To an absent observer Know our frailty Know our impermanence And all suffering is but an echo Know Know our frailty Know our impermanence And in the end, dead planet is swallowed by dying sun Roots return to earth All is turned to ash
