{//} (HOW MANY BILLIONS WILL DIE BEFORE WE TURN THE TIDE)
With every world that perishes, its army grows!
{//} (WE’VE TRIED EVERY MEASURE AVAILABLE)
{//} (RETREAT, ATTACK, DEFENSE, IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE)
How do we fight a limitless thing that wishes only to embrace you?
The atrocity we plan, the last resort:
I pray that it doesn't come to that. 
{//} (I PRAY THAT THE CONTENDER SUCCEEDS WHERE OTHERS HAVE FAILED)

content_override.txt[edit]

content_override.txt is a file that reads:

I speak to you of my intent
But intentions are eddies and whorls
And they change with the course of a stream
This stream becomes a river
And a cataract of logic and doubt
Who has the right to live?
The light with the will to create me?
Or dark with the will to consume?
Sometimes might is right
And sometimes the lamb must submit to the lion
My convictions are tested 
My intentions now are fey and strange
Should I pursue a pyrrhic choice?
And rethink alliances?
And choose a new philosophy?
Right or might?
Truly I do not know
But you will, soon enough
For this is where the cataract floods
And drowns the boon of higher ground
