1. Eru's Lament for His First-Born
Eru's Lament of the First-Born
These years are all but dying and the moon is growing dark.
Come my first born children, and craft boats of my tree's last bark.
Why are my children dying? Please, I beg you if you can
Take the path less travelled so you can see the sun again.
I've seen the horror of your endless days.
A chance for freedom, come sail across the waves.
You've heard the sea a'calling, please listen to its cry.
This world is crumbling. Don't stay to see it die.
The evil of industry has destroyed this earth.
I tell you I love you more than it's worth.
War and Hate have plagued this land, please come to me.
Peace and Love is only achieved once your souls are free.
Come my First-Born children, there is only one ship left.
I know you hear me calling, do not be so deaf.
Your age is all but over, it is time to choose your path.
Come with me to Eden, or face that cruel world's wrath.
