This is the 7th song of the story. Benjamin is contemplating his next moves and is in awe how things have gone so bad.

7. Preserve

The city is soon only a pile of rubble

It has taken too much beating and trouble

All old buildings are nowadays burning down

And leaving us with their ashes on the ground

Only the sturdy constructions will soon be left

Also they will be gone soon by construction-theft

Soon here will be nothing left worth saving

And we ask ourselves: "What is happening?"

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

He made my way forwards through the rocks and stones

There's nothing left that resembles what he'd call home

This city is now showing big signs of scars and wear

And apparently nothing is left here to spare

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

So this is it for this city

He has made his final decision

He has to end it, now that it has gone too far

And then afterwards leave the door of hope ajar

What are we trying to preserve?

Things that we have never deserved?

And so the hope has once again adjourned

As the city beside us continue to burn

What are we trying to preserve?

Are we afraid, are we too concerned?

As a new page we should now begin to turn

And listen to reason that we once learned

Any comments are again appreciated.
