Solemn Mockery

The stars all laughed as I walked past alone
They pulled their drapes that darkness was my path
The moon fell at my feet, a bloody stone
The sun withdrew her glory in her wrath
The emptiness of walking seized my feet
The emptiness of nothing seized my mind
The fearlessness of silence was complete
As every word was slowly undefined
And then I saw a pillar of white light
And god himself was standing in its glow
And jesus too was standing at his right
They shook their heads then turned again to go
Forever and forever left behind
And all the gold on earth was unrefined
