And it's hi, ho, hey. I am the cold provider.
And it's hi, ho, hey. I am the life destroyer.
For I will be the blood-colored star
With worldwide dusty weather.
And I will show you phantom canals,
And rouse your sense of wonder.
Then I will show you chaos and crag,
And sterile shards of crater.
And I will show you sand-blasted plains.
And I will be a stranger!
And night will be my tenure!
And War will be my name!
Then you will come to challenge my claim,
And dare to be explorer.
And I will earn the warrior's name.
And you will live with danger.
For I will let the giant lash out
With deadly distant fire.
And I will leave you naked to run
For flimsy crimson cover!
And Fear shall hang above you!
And Panic guide your way!
For I will suck the breath from your lungs
Before you can recover.
And I will rot your grain in my fields,
For I am not your mother!
Not she you took for granted so long,
For gifts of air and water.
The needs you now must learn to fulfill.
And I will be your teacher.
And waste will mean your downfall.
And greed will mean your doom.
Then you will wrestle the ice from my bones,
To bead upon my shoulders.
And you will boil the air from my blood,
And you will be the victor.
And you will thicken the winds on high,
And warm me like a lover.
And I will take a comet to wife,
And I will be your partner!
And time will bind us closer!
And space will lie at hand!
