I am that person in the light or maybe in the dark
my shadow fades in and out depending on the speed of sound
I crest the hill to find so many more
In the light there is a dark star fading into death just like humanity
across each universe tears dry up so many have already fallen

I have extra tears for everyone, grief that I never felt before
maybe man was created from grief such an emotion that harnesses
every muscle forcing my knees to the ground my hands to my head
drenching my body with anguish and mourning this is how it is to be human
it ends eventually the body lifts itself up past the trees past the clouds

The hills turn to forests, forests to prairie but never desert
