No haven will embrace you
no harbor keeps you safe
your comrades will desert you
no tower reaches heaven
no fortress stands to last
your desire makes you weak

No science will be mastered
no truth is absolute
your children won't lament you
no wisdom can be trusted
no glory lasts forever
our wishes wont be granted

Like torches in the aeon flow
even suns flick and die
forgotten as the ages grow
eternity is not for you

    General CommentAnother Covenant classic:

    No hope. No divine intervention. Your life and your happiness is left to your own actions. Expect no one to help you. You are here for just a brief period of time and your only obligation is to realize that the only purpose for your existance is to give, without expecting anything in return.

    No one lives forever.

    But the world and its inhabitants will, if we who are blessed with intelligence realize that life is greater than all things that it contains. We are insignificant as individuals, but immortal as parts of the universe.

    General CommentEverything ends, everything dies, nothing is constant. If you believe this, then there is very little that is scary in the world. Even the monsters of the world will go away with time, their legacy forgotten.

    General Comment'even suns flick and die' - our religions are 'sun-god' based - but even the gods are mortal, I see this as a stab at all religions. And no matter what type of believe or technology (wisdom), we acquire we are mortal. 'our wishes wont be granted' is our desire for immortality. 'no tower reaches heaven' - our first attempt to join the gods (Babel)...
