A fan poem retelling the story of the video game Journey.

Cloth and Cloak

Nothing behind, only ahead

Nothing behind, only ahead Tiny mountains piercing the sand

Nothing behind, only ahead Tiny mountains piercing the sand The tombstones of the dead

Nothing behind, only ahead Tiny mountains piercing the sand The tombstones of the dead Arrows poisoned with sadness

The cloth brings flight

The cloth brings flight Feet skim, cloak billows

The cloth brings flight Feet skim, cloak billows With friends we delight

The cloth brings flight Feet skim, cloak billows With friends we delight In dunes blushing in the sun

Ruins rise and fall

Ruins rise and fall Cloth alive

Ruins rise and fall Cloth alive At the start of it all

Ruins rise and fall Cloth alive At the start of it all Gone are those days

Hopping and sprite

Hopping and sprite Quickly now

Hopping and sprite Quickly now Away from light

Hopping and sprite Quickly now Away from light Push back from the end

We seem so small

We seem so small Within the dark

We seem so small Within the dark At least our friends are standing tall

We seem so small Within the dark At least our friends are standing tall And yet a new foe appears

Hunger's zone

Hunger's zone Swallower of companions

Hunger's zone Swallower of companions To leave us alone

Hunger's zone Swallower of companions To leave us alone Scurrying for whats next

But the flight begins

But the flight begins Up and up!

But the flight begins Up and up! A friend with them

But the flight begins Up and up! A friend with them And an ocean of breath

At the top our guide greets

At the top our guide greets Tells us what to expect

At the top our guide greets Tells us what to expect Beneath our feet

At the top our guide greets Tells us what to expect Beneath our feet Snow and ice and challenges abound

And cold some more

And cold some more We freeze over, wind blasts back

And cold some more We freeze over, wind blasts back Here we cannot soar

And cold some more We freeze over, wind blasts back Here we cannot soar We never expected an end like this

Yet as cold abhors

Yet as cold abhors Takes over our cloak

Yet as cold abhors Takes over our cloak We find we can move some more

Yet as cold abhors Takes over our cloak We find we can move some more We are almost there

Now our friends have awoke

Now our friends have awoke We reach for the light

Now our friends have awoke We reach for the light Both those of cloth and cloak

Now our friends have awoke We reach for the light Both those of cloth and cloak To join our sparks forever

The top of the mountain

The top of the mountain And back through our paths

The top of the mountain And back through our paths Of peace we are worthy

The top of the mountain And back through our paths Of peace we are worthy The light is the end of our journey
