It’s the dark of the year but it won’t last
A difficult season but soon to pass
A shitty year but the years run fast
And time’s soon up for time.
They’re at a hard age but soon they’ll be grown
And the nest sure is quiet after they’ve flown
The harvest can’t come till the seeds are sown
That can’t live till they die.
The kingdom is coming but the kingdom is here
My battle’s been won but my enemy’s near
So much to be killed by but nothing to fear
“Rest” says the mountain, “But climb.”
Living is hard but soon you can sleep
Tread for a while, then commit to the deep
All that is mortal and all you can’t keep
Cause time’s soon up for time.
