When darkness’s deepest hour, did claim.
To scourge the earth and fire the shame
and poured the moon with ashen lead
They banished the stars as the planets bled
Suffocating water then murdered the sun
grasslands begged as blood green valleys run.
Dominoed forests, fell from a single push
Volcanoes strangled with a deadly crush.
Cracking open the earth they spilled lava free.
Sucked up the rivers
drained out the sea.
Did all this, just to save justme.
