That's what this comes down to. You people don't know what we are. We're surrounded by the dead. We're among them — and when we finally give up we become them! We're living on borrowed time here. Every minute of our life is minute we steal from them! You see them out there. You know that when we die — we become them. You think we hide behind walls to protect us from the walking dead! Don't you get it!?

That period of time... Just before the end...
It is always violent.
It is the curse of thinking beings to struggle against the current.
Faced with such a finality, we kick and thrash and scream.
And eventually take up arms.
Yet when one views the world with blade in hand, all one sees are enemies to use it on.
And so there is a name for that small sliver of time.
The last violent gasp before one world ends and another begins.
The Sword Interval.
Hierophant, The Sword Interval
