Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "The Wrath of Fate" from The End of Days. It tells the tale of an airship battered by storms, traitors, fires, and more, culminating in the ship crashing into the water:
But the crew stayed at its post, and the Captain at his wheel.
We all endured the wrath of fate, but thought our fate was sealed.
A chain's as weak as its weakest link, and rust did cut us through,
But strength in arms and hearts and heads held 'cause our course was true!
- ...And they sail off into the sunset, battered, bruised, but together.
- Later on on the same album we have "Letters Between a Little Boy and Himself as an Adult," where Captain Robert's adult and child selves communicate via letters (It Makes Sense in Context) and they basically tell each other to never stop dreaming and enjoying life. And it ends with Captain Robert realizing how
droll humdrum his existence has gotten and setting off to find the childlike sense of adventure and wonder he used to have.
