Spontaneous best describes this song. It was conceived, written, and recorded in one day during the Fall 2009 recording sessions and is a noteworthy closure to Emergence.


It was the last time we all said goodbye
And went off on our own ways
The years fell like cold rain

All the colors to gray
All the sounds faded away
All we had were the feelings
We dared to hold within our quiet selves

Tens of years running together
Into one fading form that we could no longer achieve
Primal fears flowing together
We faced the coming storm but we no longer bereaved

We were so young in that day
Alive, but faced away
We left everything behind
When the thing that fell upon us closed our minds

Gathered there
We sang that song
We all despaired
We shared in loss
We seemed to care
We closed the book
We waited there
We said goodbye
We walked away diminished
And we wished our brethren well
- Amen

It was the one time we dared to look inside
Past ourselves, to view the physical remains
We held hands as we sang for the ones
Who had passed before us all
Into that dark and filthy land

In the time it took to pray
All our lives were boiled away
As we wrinkled through the seasons
Into something less that what we had become

It was the best parts of this life and we changed it all
And the silence haunts us still
We were so young
I remember, you cried, “never again…”
