Standard

Bury the sun in
The Western sea
And with it the creatures
That lurk in the light.

Tonight we live as
Before the Fall
And save the day
For another day.

Tonight we answer
No other call
And pave the way
For another way.

Tomorrow, the lust,
The flesh,
The bone—

Tomorrow, the war,
The blood
The beast—

Tomorrow, the wage,
The debt,
The stone—

Tonight, the Garden,
Our backs to the East.
