Shadow Men

Shadow men in the shadow lands
Fleeing from the gallows friend
Knowledge accrued, divisible by two
Torn apart by an invisible truth
Hopeless of having a home found here
Expanding into infinity, We fear
Comprehension of a void, Where
Tangible material, these rational things
Will be lost to the law on which atrophy hangs
Faith is placed in the ethereal and strange
Imaginary beings, silent gods, fictional kings
These thoughts held dear, feelings felt clear
All that was, all that can be, is made real
Mattering for an instant trapped by time
Part of a chaotic system, self designed,
Inside Alpha and Omega,
Between the beginning and end
Darkness to creation to darkness again
From conception to dust, we, shadow men
Shadow men existing in the shadow lands
