This, the day our sight beheld the darkened sky
And the sick glint of fear was shown in every eye.
Lost time and lost life, remembered nigh;
Now present and bleeding in every mind.
Let there be silence upon the land,
that the approaching monster may be known.
Be still in body and defiant mind.
The Earth gave you life - Fear will preserve it.
See now what shall descend; A horror like many before.
Know your body is feeble,
And your soul is mortal.
Foolhardy courage dies
In the face of the coming storm
Along with the foolhardy courageous,
And their vain passions.
And in these moments of fright,
Your fear fights for your tomorrow.
