You thought everything would get fixed by the Bastion.

"I dig my hole, you build a wall"

Well it did.

"I dig my hole, you build a wall"

But the memories, what we went through, what we endured, well, turns out they're just too tough to be claimed by time.

"One day that wall is gonna fall"

Maybe it was exposure to the cores, maybe the shards, or maybe our own wills.

"Come build that city on a hill"

Maybe we didn't want to forget. Whatever.

"Come build that city on a hill"

Point is we had these memories, problem was they were buried.

"Someday those tears are gonna spill"

To me, they came a couple weeks after the ordeal.

"So build that wall and build it strong cause we'll be there before too long"

Another dismissed them as bad dreams.

"Come build that wall up to the sky"

Still another's came in bits and pieces.

"Come build that wall up to the sky"

But for the one who did the most, the Kid himself.

"Some day your bird is gonna fly"

Kid couldn't recall them. Not on his own at least.

"Come build that wall until it's done"

They came to him in the sanctity of his dreams.

"Come build that wall until it's done"

He dreamt of the battles, the trials, and the Bastion. But they were always vivid.

"But now you've got nowhere to run"

Come morning, they'd be forgotten. But the kid always got feelings, like he'd been, done, or heard that before.

"So build that wall"

Kid thought he was done when the Bastion reset. But that was only half his journey.

"And build it strong"

But I'm getting ahead of myself. A proper tale starts at the beginning. However, this one ain't as simple as the last one I told you.

"Cause we'll be there before too long"

Don't worry Zia. He'll be here before too long.
