World, forgotten child, forsaken dream,
In silence grieves,
World, a mourning sky, a weeping sea,
Lost is the cadence of the heart,
Broken strings, a promise torn apart,
Lost is the music of the soul,
Dying echo, a story yet untold.
World, forgotten words, forsaken love,
In silence yearns.
World, a whispered song, a gentle sign,
Lost is the memory of time,
Broken wires, a vision out of line.
Lost is the chorus of life,
Fading air borne away to die.
World, forgotten faith, forsaken hope,
In silence falls.
World, a murmured wish, an uttered cry,
World, clinging to the sun.
World, a promise yet to come.
World, clutching at a dream.
Of the few who rise to redeem
