Some say the world will end in fire
some say in ice
from what I have tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
but if it had to perrish twice
I think i know enough of hate
that ice is also great
and would suffice
Fire and ice by robert Frost

Streaming, falling, seeping
This gold is not for me
People have fought over this gold of mine
from deep in the earth, past the soil
past the gravel past the very rock
To deep we have dug

Streaming, falling, seeping
I don't want this silver of mine
people have died over this silver of mine
the rocks haves wept over the loss
of there stone blood
to much we have dug

Streaming, falling, seeping
men have been killed for this ore of mine
The blood of the mountain seeping out
the hole in the mountain once full
We have dug to much we have dug too deep
The once powerful mountain is gone
