for whom are we to judge
our shattered remains
our empty coffins
our signature all that's left
this complacent focus
our unyielding principles
who's to say what's right
when this is all we know

collecting stardust
shake the jar
watch it glow
the moons shadow
dressing our night
let us be merry
in spite of our odds
let demons rest
let monikers fade
remembering sunshine
that once cloaked our neck
as we lay down new roads
for onlookers to cross
