They line up
An endless sea
A mass of the faceless
Men woman and children

The tears they cry are shared
Drops fall from your eyes
Frigid crystals they are

Wounds are healed
Pain is numbed
Emotions fade
How unnatural

One final moment for anguish
For the funeral was your own

Some faces emerge before you
Faces known to you
Yet long have passed
Welcome you with ethereal arms

How can you exist
This question fills your mind
Almost as if it matters

Tears fall for nothing
The pain of those you love
Wasted life

You always knew the questions
Now you understand no man is sane
Now the answers appear from the fog

What is the meaning of life
Why are we all here
Unanswerable questions
Yet you fear it is worse

The answer is clear
There was no meaning
You were never even here
Cold touch of wisdom
As you embrace the void
