When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers


A wandering wind sighed in stressed encores as the gate opened its plight.
Nothing was heard when every star bowed down to cry for a new ascension.
Circling final towers and tracing back the time as the ocean in your eyes alight.
The old become young as the ghosts dance and sing with reality split from tension.

Welcome all you dead on earth to the ballroom masquerade!
Cherish the moment and open the records of living memories you made!
Welcome all you spectral wrinkles to the the last eden parade!
Now is the chance to rekindle romance and break free from the grave!

Echo of past lives roar through the streets, marching through the city flare!
The drums shake the buildings to the core and the trumpets and trombones blare!
Sorrow no more, and while free souls soar, the midnight air grows cold!
Lost to the diamonds dotting the sky!
Hovering beyond a fantasy!
Disappearing into immortal goodbyes!
Heaven's embrace is the final melody!

Welcome all you dead on earth to the ballroom masquerade!
Cherish the moment and open the records of living memories you made!
Welcome all you spectral wrinkles to the the last eden parade!
Now is the chance to rekindle romance and break free from the grave!

Welcome all you dead on earth to the ballroom masquerade!
Cherish the moment and open the records of living memories you made!
Welcome all you spectral wrinkles to the the last eden parade!
Now is the chance to rekindle romance and break free from the grave!

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.
