Planet of the Dead

Let me show you a parallel Earth, where the shadows shine,
And we’ll walk together beneath a diamond sun.
We’ll cross a boiling ocean, to reach another shore,
Where a hanging city waits, waits in cooling clouds.
We’ll dash through empty streets that once were paved with gold,
Where a crowd stood laughing, laughing at the cold.

Let me show you a parallel Earth, where the darkness dawns,
And we’ll walk together beneath a chemical sky.
We’ll cross a swirling desert, to reach another door,
Where a sunken city waits, waits in shifting sands.
We’ll dash through empty caverns, where trinkets once were sold,
Where a crowd stood laughing, laughing at the cold.
Where a crowd stood laughing, laughing once of old.
