A Beautiful World

A Beautiful World

A Poem by YokaiShinigami
"

It's not complete yet, but this is the first verse and chorus.

"

V1

Our world was once such a beautiful place to live (and die)

to live and die

The world was once such a wonderful place to laugh (and cry)

to laugh and cry

But no more, but no more.


Refrain

For our hands were clasped in prayer, 

our hearts were filled with greed. 

We severed off the hand that used to feed

In time of need,

we were praying,

on ourselves

we were preying

and now we're lost,

till we're dry, we'll bleed.  


V2

We march till the dawn 

Till the day we will burn

No fear of the sun, 

For tonight we are one. 

We will fight to the end. 

To survive and defend, 

Bleeding wounds, we shall mend

We won't break, for we can bend. 

This is it, This is it. 

judgment day is here. 

We cannot forfeit reason, 

there can be no greater treason. 

be they gods or be they men, 

they will need to understand 

that this is our land, our land. 

this is where we make our stand. 

Not for glory, not for honor, 

not for grace, not for power, 

but because this is all we have, 

and this is all we need


Refrain, 

Distorted Refrain


Ambient instrumental outro.

Has an epic feel like the Red Brigade poem, but also seems really dark in places.
