In the valley of the shadow of death
I close my eyes and hold my breath

Everyday we live our lives
With no thought of what tomorrow brings
Each day we live and die
The end is near its echos ring

No time for farewells
No space for sad goodbyes
As the world dies hurting your temples
With their screams and horrid cries

What life will we leave our children
What truth will we send their way
Will the face of dooms existence
Haunt their skies with dark and grey
