The Drifter
Alone we sleep in endless nothing
Straining to open our eyes
Toiling ever to create another
Two becomes one, we becomes I
Once more drifting alone

Together we awake to face the night
Light never touching our sight
We walk as one, hands held tight
Believing this dream to be right
One shining sword against its infinite might

Every lie, they culminate
Together to form just one vast weight
I strain to lift myself awake
Seeing the entire world at stake
Being left in its violent wake

I sing myself to sleep tonight
Not daring to open my eyes
The lonely Earth floats deafly by
Even as every live thing dies
Once more drifting alone
