Rebutting Dylan

Welcome the dying of the light.
That which must be; will come to pass,
weve earned the comfort of the night.

Each one of us deserves respite
no matter what their creed or class.
Welcome the dying of the light.

To rest in peace is our birthright
but some of us still doubt alas.
Weve earned the comfort of the night.

Its destiny we cannot fight.
We see but dimly through the glass.
Welcome the dying of the light.

There is a garden of delight
where centuries as moments pass.
Weve earned the comfort of the night.

Which is half hidden from our sight
that will our dearest dreams surpass.
Welcome the dying of the light
weve earned the comfort of the night.
