The battle's fought and won,

The few have stood alone.

Nothing's left of Helghan,

We've toppled its throne.


Not a word is uttered,

No more tears are shed,

The time has come for mourning,

For both living and the dead.


There's no sense of triumph,

No glory or elation.

All that's left is a broken world,

A broken, ruined nation.


The path was long that led to this,

But it's come now to an end.

All that's left is eternal time,

Wounds that will never mend.


On a bit of a tangent, but I'd say that the ending of Killzone 3 is more or less a good snapshot of what I felt was improved narrative from Killzone 2 and maybe even up to par with the original. Inspired this anyway.
