And the best we can hope is to cast off our sorrow and to sleep calm and sure through the wilderness call and infinite fall. And when you awake you'll find liberty waits in line to welcome you into a new day beginning. And you'll know you haven't lost anything. It's all trapped in the thickness of things. Dreams cover your eyes, and oblivion shines...
