In the land
Where the light fades
And the shadows blend
And echoes whisper
In your ear
He stands
With an outstretched arm
Reaching for something
As he stares off in the distance
All the while
Drinking it in
With a wine glass in his
Other hand
But it shatters as he
Falls to the floor

They find his body
In the same place
Fallen on the floor
Hasn't moved an inch
But his arm's still reaching
His eyes are still staring

In the land with
Dying trees
And changing leaves
Where the air's so cold
You can't breathe
Lest you freeze
She stands
With her arms spread
And her eyes towards the sky
Wishing for frozen wings
Just so she can fly

They find her too
As still as a statue
And the clearest shade of blue
Frozen solid
