Sometimes I wish that certain people were dead
And others would live forever,
And here begins the next chapter of my life, one of a potentially infinite and utterly absent future.
They called it Heartbreak Morrow, those who saw
The slaughter of the lambs and lived to tell!
I was the only man to leave that place
Alive, and what remains of life I’ll use
To tell you all about the things I saw:
The world is coming down, my loves. The center cannot hold. The Titanic’s going under. The Pyramids are sinking. Mahal is wilting! The Redeemer is going to jump!
