[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

Narrator:
Spring Caaame
But it wasn't the same
And all the animals could sense something was Wronggg
There had been a drought, then a flood
Then the Flowers didn't bud
And the groundhog's shadow was too Longgg

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

Winter had carved a brand
Deep within the land
Leaving the earth barren and bare
The soil could no longer yield the vast acres of fields
It had yielded in previous years

Strange sky hung over head
Tinted a copper crimson red
Streaked with jagged shades of BLACK
Horizons seemed to absorb it
Suspending the sun from it's orbit
While from the ground it appeared to be CRACKED

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

Dense blankets of smog hovered over each city like a fog
making the clouds appear dull and gray
None of the birds had returned from their winter sojourn
to welcome this STRANGE SPRING DAY

Beyonder! Beyonder! Beyonder!

The fixed stars and constellations had unmoored from their fixations
And altered their shapes and COURSE

Time stood STILL and motion was NIL
And mankind was at a LOSSS

Each month had grown shorter by a lunar quarter
And the rain no longer FELL

The moon's pull became stronger
As the nights grew longer
And the Days seemed hot as HELL

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

The world was in a perpetual state of war
And had lost track of the score
in the struggle between the weak and the STRONG

The conflict had been INTENSE
Filled with their gross VIOLENCE
Of the righteous in opposition to the WRONG

There was raping and LOOTING
violence and SHOOTING
Until blood ran red in the streets

Discord and strife had become a way of life
And each episode was ALL REPEATS

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

Soon the distant rumbling of mountains crumbling
could be heard for miles around

And the splitting of turf caused by cracks in the Earth
and MADE A ROARING DEAFENING SOUND

Beyonder! Beyonder! Beyonder!

Then the seas began to Boil and thrashed about in Turmoil
flooding all the surrounding terrain

This caused the poles to shift
Set icebergs adrift blocking all shipping lanes

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

Volcanic eruptions brought forth destruction
The wild animals fled in fright

Tropical islands split bit by bit
Deserts froze overnight

Forest fires BLAZED, and cities were RAZED

Earthquakes, cyclones, and hail
Tidal waves and typhoons accompanied flash flooding monsoons
along with hurricanes, tornadoes, and GALES

Beyonder! Beyonder!

Fish by the scores were washed up on the shores,
and were scorched as they lay in the sand

And all the insects had gathered as if nothing else mattered
and began to RAVAGE THE LAND

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

RATS RAN IN PACKS
STAGING RAIDS AND ATTACKS
ON ANYTHING EDIBLE THEY COULD FIND

PANIC AND HYSTERIA SPREAD ALONG WITH PLAGUES AND BACTERIA TO UNLEASH AN EPIDEMIC ON MANKIND

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

CORPSES PILED HIGH BENEATH THE COPPER CRIMSON SKY
TILL THE STENCH ROSE UP ABOVE THE CLOUDS

A SCAVENGER FEAST UPON THE REMAINS OF THE DECEASED
WAS ENACTED BY THE STARVED CRAZED CROWD

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

MEN STAGGERED ABOUT AS IF DRUNK WITH THEIR MINDS DEFUNCT WHILE THEIR WOMEN SWOONED AND SWAYED

SINNERS LAMENTED, HYPOCRITES REPENTED WHILE A HAND-FULL OF THE RIGHTEOUS PRAYED

[Chorus]
First Day
BeYonDer!
Last Night
BeYonDer!
Beginning of the end
BeYonDer!
of the twilight flight
BeYonDer!

REALITY BECAME DISTORTED
EXPECTING MOTHERS ABORTED
AND ALL THE CHILDREN'S HAIR TURNED TO GRAY

SALT TASTED SWEET IN THE SWELTERING HEAT
AND YOU COULDN'T TELL THE NIGHT FROM THE DAY

[Chorus]
First Day, Last Night
Beginning of the end of twilight flight

First Day, Last Night
Beginning of the end of twilight flight

First Day, Last Night
Beginning of the end of twilight flight

Narrator:
In a remote subterranean retreat they had all gathered to meet the last of men and jinn.

With the utmost discretion they huddled in session
And pondered this predicament they were in.

Man:
"This is it we are through, there is nothing we can do" spoke the leader
of men

Jinn:
"That is not so" said the jinn "are we not safe here within?"
"Let us try to prolong our end"

Man:
"It is much too hard to defy the will of God"
"We must all submit, for if we are doomed to die, the least we could
do is try, not to do just the opposite"

Jinn:
"Nay say the jinn if we're not kith and kin .... why should it end right
here"
"We should try to escape, and avoid this fate, and conquer a new
frontier"
"Come let us take our place, out there in space, out there among the
stars"
"Before our efforts become void, and we are totally destroyed"
"When Pluto conjects Neptune squares Mars"

"Nay but fear not men, we have devised a plan that's designed to save us all"
"We have summoned the prefect of an ecological defect whom we feel can
check our fall"

"His name is Samannikin, the Android Jinn"
"He is programmed in another lens, he can deduct and deduce manufacture
and produce and he is made in the likeness of a man"
"He has cunning and guile, and is versatile, and can adapt to any kind of
situation"

"And neither heat nor cold can affect his control, or cause his deterioration"
"He will outlive you or I, in fact he can never physically die, being capable of
duplicate reproductions"
"From autonomous moving parts to cybernetic solar hearts"
"and he is programmed to follow instructions"

"We are dispatching him to conduct a test, and notify us what the results
manifest before we can conclude our preparations to leave"
"And then if his information proves correct, we'll know what to expect what
our space units vehicles can achieve"

"They can travel at the speed of sublight, and are capable of indefinite flight
anywhere within the universe"

"The only thing we don't know, is will our gravity let us go"
"And that is what we got to find out first"
"But this hopefully we'll learn upon Samannikin's return along with the results
of his environmental treks

"Meanwhile we'll survey the scene with our tellphoid beam and from there
decide what to do next"

Man:
"Well we opt to decline",said the man, we rather return to the land
where at least we could die in peace"
"You see we stopped living in fear of what lies out there"
"Since the sun has stopped rising in the east"

Jinn:
"Then so be it" said the Jinn, "it is your skin"
"Just remember there's no way you can come out of this alive"
"Only a fool would rather die, then give up without a try, and not to fight
for a chance to survive"

"However there is still a little time, for you to change your mind and leave
with us instead"
"But this is your last chance to reverse your stance, before you condemn
yourselves to the dead"

Man:
"Then be so advised, said man, that has already been decided, we are
all united in this course we have chosen to take"
"Therefore let's make this brief, because we are seeking relief from this
life we must all forsake"

"You see we comprehend this is the end, and we must prepare for when
it arrives"

"So we bid you farewell from the fortified cell that you think will save your
lives"

Jinn:
"Open hell I commanded the Jinn, and let them begin their sacrificial
suicide"
"For soon we will be gone, and there will be none left among these fools
when they have died"

Narrator:
Into a labyrinth of tunnels and cylinder shaped funnels they proceeded without delay.
Stopped to pressurize suits and air-propelled boots they hastened to get underway.
In single file, they heard mile after mile while their headlamps glowed

Resolute in their purpose to reach the top of the surface from twelve thousand feet below.
Each praying for one last breath, before tasting death, and taking one last look at the sky.
And seeking no reward except mercy from their lord,
and all preferring to die.

[Chorus]
First Day
Be Be Be Be
Last Night
Be Be Be Be
Beginning of the end
Be Be Be Be
of the twilight flight
Be Be Be Be

Narrator:
Meanwhile, on a closed circuit channel monitor on a control panel
their progress was being watched on a screen.

With ill concealed contempt, they revealed their intent to
treacherously intervene.

Jinn:
"If we let them reach the top there will be no way to stop the
contamination from seeping in"
"They will just have to be destroyed in order for us to avoid from being
killed declared the Jinn"

"It's either them or us, so this is a must"
"Quick, activate Samannikin"
"There is no way they can shake him, and he will soon overtake them
and eliminate them all from within"

Narrator:
A three and a half ton door stood back across the floor to reveal a platform standing there.
A mere gasp in size he suddenly materialized, and stood standing while suspended in mid-air.

Samannikin:
"Good evening gentlemen, I am Samannikin "
"I am he whom you have made of it"

"My purpose is to search and survey, compute and relate information from
the ends of the Earth"
"Analyze and test points North, South, East, and West and salvage anything that can work
"I am endowed with a microcosm brain developed from a sperm bank strain,
protected by a beryllium skullcap"
"Programmed with the complete history of mankind,
by the designers of my mind and made to indefinitely adapt"

"My anatomy is composed of plutonium platinum ore
with a cobalt 60 core located in the cavity of my diaphragm"
"An infinitesimal small amount relative to the count critical mass of 0.002 micromillgrams"
"I am covered with a thin layer of diamonnite mesh in a skin-toned flesh,
molded to detailed precision
I can disappear in an inkling and reappear in a twinkling while photographing in infrared vision"
"In order to prevent mankind from violently disagreeing,
I was rendered into being to resolve opposing views"
My task is to settle every dispute no matter how minute by suggesting alternative avenues"

"But your leaders capitulated to the point of being obliterated, by increasing their use of force"
"And now you are doomed to be sealed in your tomb, unless I can alter the shape of your course"
"However I will never lapse or rest until the completion of my quest
to insure your species survives"
"And I have been equipped by the Grand Master of Praiser
with a finger tip laser to preserve and protect your lives"
"I am at your service, yours to command, to do with whatever you will"
"I am Samannikin, the Android Gin, and your wish I shall strive to fulfill"

Jinn:
"Go quickly then and destroy those men before they reach the surface"
"They must be stopped from reaching the top and prevented from thwarting our purpose"

Narrator:
In the twinkle of an eye, he proceeded to reply, and carry out his masters command.
At the speed of light, he initiated his flight, and appeared on the surface of the land.

In his dismay and, awe he computed what he saw
scattered to his right and left were the bodies of the men
beyond the point of the end and their souls with the angel of death.

The timeless blur of the speed transfer in which their souls had departed
it was at the speed of light their souls had took flight into regions spiritually charted

But he could neither monitor what he saw, nor do anything about it.
For the spectrum of light was far too bright, and left him no reason to doubt it

Sammanikin:
"Wait, before you go, tell me what which I must know"
"The master to whom you reckon"
"Your shaped is blurred, and my vision obscured, moving at 186,000 miles per second"

The Angel:
"KNOW ALL TOO THE FOOLS !
"There is no lord but one."
"He neither begets not nor is He begotten"
"He creates and destroys at His will"
"And there is non like unto Him"
"He to whom all souls reckon
"He to whom all submit on his beckon"

"The Lord of the Darkness, and the Lord of the Light"
"The Lord of the Day, and the Lord of the Night"
"The Lord of the Two Easts, and the Two Wests
Who not requires any slumber, nor is in need of rest"
"He alone sits upon the throne, and to Him alone is all things known"

"For He has created all things, and He ALONE IS THE KING OF KINGS"
"When He creates a thing, He merely says BEEE"
"and there is no other lord than HE"
"He knows what you was before you were what you are"
"THERE IS NO LORD BUT ALLAAAH "

"There were some among your people that believed, but for the most part they were deceived"
"And now all their souls have been received"
"So render yourself into submission, and suspend your mission"

Narrator:
Samannikin could feel his skin tightening, seemingly on its own accord.
He wondered then if this was the end, and he would be returning to meet his lord.

If he could just fire one quick blazer from his finger tip laser,
he could eliminate this threat and free his masters souls
from those sacksy holes, so they may triumph yet.

But nay, there was nothing he could do or say, for he had no choice in the matter.

As he felt himself dissolve, he lost all resolve to keep his former from merging with his latter.

The future from becoming the past.
and the last thing he heard was the sound of the trumpet blast.

[Chorus]
First Day
Be Be Be Be
Last Night
Be Be Be Be
Beginning of the end
Be Be Be Be
of the twilight flight
Be Be Be Be
