Madeliene
Shall her story end?
With this aftermath music,
My broken French?
Heal her, if you can
Pray the lions aren't waiting
Take her hand

I want to be brave, I want to be brave,
But the night goes up in flames
The courage we need
A fury to tame this madness --

No more will I count the dead
Bending gathering words he should have said
When night falls it scrapes his knees
We watch the houses on fire
And she says to me

I want to be brave, I want to be brave
But I don't think I'll love again
The dark is so deep,
I've lost my way in this madness --

Over time good must go, and are we safe yet?
Madeliene, can I escape again?
Out of a dragonfly jar, am I safe yet?

    General Commentone small correction: just before Over time... there is another line which goes:

    Over time, luck runs out and fate is not, your friend

    (also an amazingly beautiful song)
