The Blackened Veil

Down at the end of the line
At the end of the rope  
With unraveling twine
At the end of the twisting
Yellow brick road’s green glimmer  
Shows burned out black city  
Instead of emerald shimmer
And the citizens need no pity
Dark and proud every one  
With hearts of broken stone
An inner core with beating flesh  
Is bleeding red love like your own  
They warm themselves beside the fire
Of cold open eyes as dark as coal
Whose jaded sight burns with desire  
They wait before the blackened veil
For the coming resolution  
Where for all the heartache  
There will be solution
