I am flesh and blood
Weak and broken
Sticks and stones
Break my bones
And today is the day
I die
Death is but a door
Leading to eternity
But will my spirit fly
And float up among the stars
Or will my soul sink down
Into the darkest depths
Perhaps death is nothing
But death and nothing after

I am stardust and light
Timeless and eternal
This grimy mortal realm
Cannot touch me
And today is the day
I cry
Tears of silver and gold
Crystal wings stretch out
Behind me ready to soar forever
My feet do not leave the ground
My heart and soul too heavy
Trapped by pain and pity
Perhaps death can touch me
I die a death that is forever
