sometimes the darkness snuffs out the light
before the day even begins
sometimes a bird dies before it takes flight
sometimes the sickness wins

sometimes ideals get crushed by the truth
and the ship sinks before it can sail
sometimes your white knights are proven uncouth
and all of your hard work still fails

sometimes your heroes turn out to be bores
and your saints are just hiding their sins
sometimes the doctors can't find the cure
sometimes the sickness wins.

even the most brilliant metals rust
that is eternity
