"History records
A million killed
The few of those I witnessed
Haunt me still

Now I stand at the border
Calm at last
A clifftop over water
This is where I choose to pass"

Is that too abrupt a jump between topics?)
it's a subtle jump. and goes nicely with what you already have. It makes this story that you've woven into a song very more emotional. I think it would appeal to a lot of people especially in this age where war seems to be on everyone's mind. Or somwhere in everyone's mind.

I like it. And does the last line (this is where I choose to pass) fade out?
Just curious
