XXIV: THE SCREAM
Verse 3:4 — THE SCREAM
Savathûn! Xivu Arath! My siblings
We are betrayed. We will never live eternal.
Our might shatters entire species. We inhale the smoke of their burning.
This is our compact with the Worm our God —the worm makes us mighty.
But as we wield this might, our worm’s hunger expands.
If we fail to feed it, it will devour us from within.
We have exterminated three hundred and six worlds.
And now I am certain —
My worm’s hunger grows faster than the might I draw from it.
We are bound by our covenant to obey our nature: eternal search. Eternal cunning. Eternal conquest.
But as we do this, my siblings, we feed our worms.
And the more we feed them, the hungrier they grow. Faster and faster.
Soon, my siblings, we will be so mighty, and our worms so hungry
That not with all our might could we possibly feed them.
And we will be devoured.
WHAT CAN WE DO?
