i will remember your first tears
two glinting streaks on virgin skin
and the fire in your heart

to excel, surrender, suffer
to fill the empty shape with yearning
to uphold that image of perfection
you had been so eager
every wish for you command

yet to face and live the horror
to persist where darkness shone
you reached down into the abyss
there resides the revolution
deep inside our lost souls

all that we've achieved
all the power and our pride
all that we put into motion
culminated in that crushing moment
which finally announced our fall

your wish and chance were granted
herald of a newborn age
near existence' very edge
i beg not to be forgotten
for we soon must disappear

i will remember your last words
i, too, should to be thankful
for the fire in your heart
