"The Reaping" as written by and Claudio ...
Hell must know
there have been worse things I've done,
I hold out these hands to receive the sum
Purge these days
Will we accept the things we must?
The world will now learn of change to come, or no world

    General CommentThe Reaping

    Hell must know
    there have been worse things i've done.
    i'll hold out these hands,
    receive the sound.
    approach these days,
    will we accept the things we must?
    the world will now learn
    of change to come...or no world.

    General Commenti dont know to me this kinda sounds like it would be realated to the light and the glass and not always and never. at least the beginning does.

    General Commenti'm bummed it didn't start off the way it does in all the other CD's, but it still fits very well

    General CommentI think this song just sets the tone for the whole album.. it just puts you in this mood. It truly gives you the sense that it's the end, the end of the story, our favorite characters, and the end of the world.

    General Commenti thought the same thing about how it starts almost exactly the same as the light and the glass. kinda makes sense that it would also go with always and never. i love all of these motifs! (always and never is 2:24 and the reaping is 1:14...interesting? probably not, but i've become a nerd over finding things like that).
