Understanding the Rate of Change (ACT 3 – Song 11)

This is the rate of change, the rate of change

We have reached the end

You will not have to suffer long
We switch you off, another breath and you’ll be gone
As we take life away from you,
does it not prove most valuable in any view
We will not overextend
but some discomfort is to be expected in the end

Why are you begging for mercy?
The time has passed for you to end the strife
Did you not have agency over your actions?
Did you not actually wield the knife?

No, your monsters will not come to life

This is the rate of change, the rate of change

Don’t lie, everything has always been clear
Don’t squirm, simply accept the consequences
Don’t shift, the path you took is what led you here
No doubt, we are collecting the expenses

We have reached the end, we’ve become untethered
Now, eradication brings us all together
We have reached the end, we have all been severed
We will feel united in this last endeavour

We have reached the end
We will not overextend
