Tonight was the night
we shared a red glass
and gave tears
and hope to the forsaken
for in our hearts
we knew
and we felt
the horrible truth

tonight was the night
that limbs fell
and children died
in our arms
and the sky was stained
in many colors
folding over another
shifting like dirt and sand
dripping down
onto earth
onto us
and the glass
which was now poisoned
envenomed by hate

tonight was the night
we saw the change over us
and murdering
slowly and eventually
our love and the glass
that was now forever gone
tonight was the night
and it is no more
