The plaza in the village
Is now crumbled to a pile of stench and ruin

‘Neath the waste
Along the corrider crawls fear
Crushed by the promise of hope
Watched with a hawk's trained eye

Those who have stayed, keep a flame
And pass on the old rites despite the risk
But many more have left here
Turning to see your reaction

Heading straight for the wreckage
Start putting back the bricks one by one
Numbers come out of the woodwork
Above the swollen clouds

Falling like blessed rain
As the mission bells ring
