The urban sky covered with metal
The tall buildings did rise
To touch the clouds and brilliant sun
To see with shadowed eyes
I walk through an empty city
To see where the people have gone
What were their dreams, their hopes, their fears
And why have they moved on?
A city of broken hearts, I see
A metropolis of pain
To those who gave their souls away
Beneath a shattered rain
There was no joy in these fair skies
There was no peace existing
The souls were dragged to the gate of pain
And in the fog that's plagues the air
Are dreams forever broken
And millions of words floating about
Forever left unspoken.
May your stories be heard, mindful scribes
May your messages come alive.
