“The eyes of the future flew down the paved streets
As the chiming bells rang their last sigh.
They scraped knowledge into the thin skin of trees
And sang the melodies of Before.”

Sunlight dusted the quiet city with gold

The first rhythms were heard within.

The eyes of the future flew down the paved streets

As the chiming bells rang their last sigh.

They scraped knowledge into the thin skin of trees

And sang the melodies of Before.

Some times they tried to break out of this world
And yearned for the merciless day to end.

Other times they unleashed their happy spirits within

And wished to freeze time to stay in the happy atmosphere forever.

Finally, as the blazing star decided to settle back down in the quiet sanctuary

They walked home, filled with new life.
