Shadow men in the shadow lands

Fleeing from the gallows friend

Knowledge accrued, divisible by two

Torn apart by an invisible truth

Hopeless of having a home found here

Expanding into infinity, We fear

Comprehension of a void, Where

Tangible material, these rational things

Will be lost to the law on which atrophy hangs

Faith is placed in the ethereal and strange

Imaginary beings, silent gods, fictional kings

These thoughts held dear, feelings felt clear

All that was, all that can be, is made real

Mattering for an instant trapped by time

Part of a chaotic system, self designed

Inside Alpha and Omega

Between the beginning and end

Darkness to creation to darkness again

From conception to dust, we, shadow men

Shadow men existing in the shadow lands
