"Her waves calling
Morgan Le Fay, enchanting
Lured by visions of floating islands
In absolute zero
Only dead air, but someone's out there...
A signal from the farthest point
Transmits the isolation
Transmits the isolation
Watching over the silver ocean
No sight of any keeper
But there's visions, Imperial

All of a sudden the sea went....Boom

It's getting late now
Love in an era of peacetime
But rarely any sunshine
We need the luck and power of alchemy

Laying there in half-light
Silhouette in moonshine
A body fails, it isn't mine
But we're too broke to stop to let it be

One scientist follows another
Battles to recover
A life that's in emergency
I don't want what's left, so genuinely

From the high tower, she looked over the dark water
It was vast and powerful
Every tiny light was someone's life, like small stars in the Sea
She saw her friends, and the new lives they'd brought into the world
She smiled proudly
Her hopes and dreams were all still there, even if she wasn't
Some of them still wore the jewels she'd made for them
If only she could leave this place and get supplies...
She could make more...
...and leave them in their gardens at night as presents
When she caught sight of her loved ones,
She was curious as to why they were getting older...
...but why she remained the same
Oh, and she needed a clock...
She had absolutely no idea of what time it was, or what day...
Or even what year

At her station, she watches all
Her hand is on my shoulder
She'll guide my path. Soon we'll meet again

She's a beacon. Her love is life
I can see her in the Moon
I'll kiss her fingers, when we meet again

She'll never leave me. She's with me now
She brings the ships home safely
I'll bring her flowers, when we meet again

No more needles. No more blood
So sad I couldn't hold her hand
But I'll keep her safe this time, when we meet again"
