"And there she lies, broken on the grass Awaiting the moments til her life is gone Her father weeps by her side Torn by anguish He holds her hand tightly As she slowly slips away" A starless sky above Once the reflection of her life Never to see the lights again Now that she has died A starless sky above Once the reflection of her life Never to see the lights again Now that she has died Cursed to live in darkness We've lost what once was our guide We will never know peace again Now that she has died One by one they fade Each extinguished by the dripping of her blood Only the moon will remain Alone in a starless sky How could I do this How could I end the lights of the night Why would I do this Condemning us to live under a blackened sky Give me back my daughter Give us back the stars Grant me my revenge Now that she has died

"I watched the stars fall from the night sky like flies caught in some airborn poison. I watched as dawn's light tried in vain to breach the horizon before fading to obscurity and darkness... ... And it is all that I ever wanted..." I, who now dwells in darkness Who breathes air of poison May my grief become conviction For I have already slain the light Her body preserved in moonlight Serene as our starless skies Forgotten to all Daughter of the stars Hands around her neck Her dying smile An ephemeral voice As lights begin to fade Eyes close slowly Breathing subsides Skin grows cold Body grows limp Her hair like the stars Her eyes like the sun And her soul like the moon Don't worry, (my darling), I'm coming, (I'll be home soon) I'm so sorry, (my darling), I made you wait, (I'll be home soon) Your night is beautiful, (my darling), I'm so glad it will never end, (I'll be home soon) This gift, (my darling), my gift to you (I'll be home soon) A return to splendour A body to the grave Her cosmic resting place A father's rage We've lost our light Our days end No more sunlight As moonlight descends

I've been gone too long All as I left it Is worn out and tired And covered in dust Her room is dark and empty Memories float silent In the still night air Cementing my regret I'll never see her again I'll never feel the warmth of her smile again I'll never breath words of comfort to her again I'll never see the sunlight again And as the world now comes crashing down The lonely silence rings in my ears Moving slowly through the immortal night She precipitates like rain Our light no more Sorrow leads me by the hand And shows me my litany of failures The stars taken from the land Just another one of my failures And as the world now comes crashing down The lonely silence rings in my ears Moving slowly through the immortal night She precipitates like rain I now fear the dark It's like the rain washes my shame Born anew in pure darkness Like sparkling moondust She tears the night away We thought what we could not I welcome our end And the shape of her smile Was sparkling moondust The shape of her smile Is sparkling moondust The shape of her smile Is sparkling moondust
