And After the Dying Sun

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

There, in the distance, the ancient song
is nearing its final verse
after years innumerable, eons long
now there will be none, there will be none

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

What comes after death? A trivial question
The answer means little now, there is no need
The dead don’t care for answers
The dead only know to die

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

In moments there will be
none that has ever been, none that will become
The skin of the world is stretching thin
Soon we watch it burst from within

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

What burns turns to ash
But what of what is erased?
Where does the obliterated go?
What becomes of us when it all burns?

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

One last kiss, one last hurried embrace
Some even blunder and steal
Some, even now, still fall
for the familiar, for the human

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

Horus, there, watches: helpless; and
Zues stands in the awe of it
Gods, too, are of the universe; and
when that dies, like us, they will fall

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again

We hold hands, it is near
The sky folds on itself and falls
It is difficult to imagine there being nothing
Even more difficult to imagine that …

The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again
The sun will never rise again.
