Everything Great Must Fade Away

Sometimes in the middle of a calm sea
A storm rages in the most violent way.

A hurricane begins in the peace
Death comes from the still of life

In the greatest times
In the most awful ways

Amazing things are torn away

Goodness and kindness are always replaced
With cruelty and hardship

With bleeding and shame
With darkness and rain

 

Everything great must fade away
