glistening in the snow
the world carries on
now I find the time has come
the truth I face alone

tell them they don't love you
ask them if they care
the coldness of their faces
the burden they all bear

it finds me
clouds parting
invades me
midnight standing there

the winters they have come
to cast on brighter days
silver stars in blackness
slowly find their way

as the nighttime falls
the children they all gasp
closed up tight for dreaming
you know they are the last

tonight the silent stillness
now has come
to put the world in motion
tonight it must be done
