Anomaly, what purpose have you here?
Our methods cannot monitor your mind.
Explain this strange emotion. Is it fear?
We have no answers. Tell us. We are blind.
Anomaly, what damage did we do?
What injury begat the need for this?
Perhaps the instability is you,
A deviant, designed to break our bliss.
Anomaly, is this the way we die?
So much of what we were has been destroyed.
Before you bring the darkness, tell us why
You send us into silence, to the void.
    Anomaly, we see you, see the flaw,
    The end of us, the error: 404.
