I used to pray that you one day would come around
until they came into our lives and sprayed you on the ground
So now I say who you were, but who has time?
If no one sees, there is no crime

I don't sleep because they don't sleep
How do we sleep?

They came from clear around the world,
the missiles to our homes,
and we just lose forever
I wish that we were drones

To my amazement every time you rise anew
In spite of all that they destroy, so much is left of you
Your brother's heart has burst to flames and I am drowned
in sorrow inbound

And I wish I could fly from here like they do
and not know a thing, just obey,
but I'll sooner die just like you,
it's cheaper that way

And the one staring at your screen,
feeling it in your bones,
I hope you live forever
