Summary Edit

From the Onyx Path catalog:

"Good Book says the world's caught in a long dark night, waiting for a brand new dawn to come and sweep all that darkness away.
Don't know if that'll ever happen, but I do know this: there's folks set on making things darker.
They're looking for ways to break the laws the Good Lord set for all of nature's ways.
I've seen it happen, and the night's getting longer and darker.
Sometimes I think I mightn't ever see the sun come up."
--John Ash, Tammuz
