Come here all ye worthy

To hear the tale of the Old

That in his last days of his utter maddening

He put away some kernels of truth for those

Who were kind enough to seek them out


Come here all ye curious

To hear the tale of the Old

To hear how he fought off his worst demons

And preserved what was left that was good

From inside his shriveled heart


Come here all ye wanting

To hear the tale of the Old

Those of you who could identify with

That lonely feeling that he felt inside

As he lay on his floor dying


Come here all ye students

To hear the tale of the Old

To learn what’s good that’s left in this world

To learn that it won’t always be so dark and wasted

As it is around us today


Come here all ye people

To hear the tale of the Old

who believe that we are not alone here on this Earth

and that we must fight to preserve our way of life

from those dark beings that did enrapture his mind

together we must rise and fight

together we must rebuild and rejoice

knowing that all that was bad was taken

so that we don’t need to deal with that

which the Old did

He dealt with that for us.


Come here all ye faithful

To pay respects to the Old

For keeping us from darkness

And reminding us that light does exist.
