Facing the Darkness

Darkness has fallen upon the earth
Fires rise up from the south
A great wind blows through the dead cities
Cloaked in darkness and doom

Alone stand the eight, and the ghost of the ninth
Gazing towards the darkened sky
Winged beasts swarm the sky
And the great eye glares out into their souls

The Elf's far-seeing eyes search out their hope
But can only seek out the sea
But there is no turning back from what they must face
And he stands tall with the rest

One day a boat shall sail away
Carrying the Elf and his friend
But for now he shall stay
And face the end of the day
