there in the end is where we stood

transcended by the moment, wishing us good

wonders in torment, on the quest of godhood

seeking immortality, in fire and wood


& there in the end wears off the night

consumed by words, blinded by light

shredded apart by fears of fight

all we wanted to be, was minds in flight


there in the end, we existed to be

born to die, to set ourselves free

a life too short, for us to see

cheaters of death, I wish we could flee
