Time has already come
The sun is gone – no more shadows
Can’t give up, I know, and this life goes on
I’ll be strong
I’ll be strong

A sweeping epic set in a dystopia created by emotional repression. A world saved by empathy and curiosity.

Pour yourself into something and fight for it with everything you have. Leave nothing behind. Run for your life.
