THE DEAD

THE DEAD

the dead
gather in the streets

this is not what we died for
this is not what we dreamed

blood gathers
across the world
from a thousand screens
reasons are given for killing
crowds shout
demanding
blood

this is not what we died for
this is not what we dreamed

the dead whisper
waiting to be heard
giving guidance
to end death
but none listen

this is not what we died for
this is not what we dreamed

the world lies shattered
tearing itself apart
wounds gushing supperating
weeping
the dead
are powerless to help
the living stay blind
unable to see

this is not what we died for
this is not what we dreamed

the dead
gather in the street
mourning
funeral shrouds

this is not what we died for
this is not what we dreamed
