The End And The Beginning

This song is by Forgive Durden, features Greta Salpeter and Brendon Urie and appears on the album Razia's Shadow (2008).

Pallis
I've been tracing your steps
Along with your dainty, exquisite guest
Across mountain land and serpentining seas
These two have been on quite an odyssey

You're a fool to think this princess
Could ever really love a couple of poor boys like us
She requires riches, recherché
Riding with rodomontading roués

Adakias
Casanovas have charmed with chiffons, so chichi
Chased her with their conceited coteries

Anhura
Maharajahs have magniloquently mouthed
Their love for me through their menageries

Adakias
She's been propositioned, propounded, by every pompous prince
Given panniers of peerless pears and plums, polished

Adakias
I've been seduced with shimmering, sparkling stones
Squired by suitors to sizable chateaus

Adakias
And I'm the one she chose!

Pallis
I understand how you can love a man of truth
So why don't you just ask him where he spent his youth?
Oh, look at her face!
She really doesn't see that you are from the dark
And you've been lying through your teeth

Adakias
Anhura, please listen, I really can explain
I meant to tell you sooner, it's been gnawing at my brain
Now you know the truth, but that knowledge
Shouldn't change the nature of our love
We've broken through the chains

Pallis
I'm sure that she would care to hear your acumen
As to how your presence is the reason she is sick
But I suppose it's in vain, since her life is ending
When I thrust this blade into her heart-a-thumping!

Adakias
Brother, NO!

Pallis
Brother, what have I done?
My blade has pierced your side
This was never my intent
Oh God, please stay alive!

Adakias
Dear Pallis, you're my brother
You've tried to protect me
But your dagger's edge finding my flesh
It truly was my destiny

Pallis
Brother, I was shortsighted
I ignored your cries
You really are the chosen one
The calculated sacrifice!

Adakias
Please listen to my last words
Before I fade away
This is my gift to you:
Live for your love every day

Pallis
Please don't let your tired heart stop beating
You're bleeding
Just keep breathing

Adakias
You will take care of this spinning sphere
I'll disappear and see you in the mirror
Place your hand on mine, one last time, and kiss me goodbye
Take the love inside my mind, before I die
Place your hand on mine, one last time, and kiss me goodbye
Take the love inside my mind, before I die
Please don't cry

Narrator
The mountains seceded
The light and dark depleted
We lost Adakias, but regained our science
Our world was finally reunited
So this is my cue of where to leave you
Now it's your story to retell and pass on
Because an idea is only relevant if it's being thought upon
So remember, never surrender
'Cause the unrelenting constancy of love and hope
Will rescue and restore you from any scope
