‘94 and in the forest I Went too far and think I should’ve died Stranger’s house appeared and asked them if Knew your name and somehow even they Miles out walked me to Carolyn We all knew the way to Carolyn Every time I have been left behind Deemed unworthy of returning time You were always on the other end You were always my believing friend
Feel, feel the low sun it moves it grows and Im pulling my own fear is alone, son use your eyes, my ears they’re killing our own people say we’re going out tomorrow people know we’re not all coming home first charge the butchers gone, I never seen so many men killed before Now We go! I’m off, I cannot talk, I can’t feel life when Im scraping it from the floor I’m coming up slowly you’ll hardly even know it I’m pulling it back to me I’m making it better but parts of ours don’t matter when they’re lost in the bloody sea loyal to country, partial to parties a crown for a majesty pardon my solution it’s filled with emotion a struggling peasantry I stop, a message drops a tower calls this question from up above, “King John, that horrid song, let me live, a blessing from the throne. From your own.” I’m falling over now I said I’m through Pawns are all over now we only remember you!!
It’s you. It’s me. It’s we. Don’t you agree it’s us vs. them? That’s how it’s been since the beginning, but everything ends. It’s not your fault you were born on the wrong side of that wall. They built it tall, but you better get ready to watch it fall! You’re gonna die die die, but what’cha gonna die for? What’cha gonna die for now? You gonna die die die for a little clout– Die for the people who let you down last round? You’re gonna die die die, but what’cha gonna die for? What’cha gonna die for now? Less than a minute left to win it back. Don’t you give in just yet. There’s still plenty of time to be the best. You take your sword up to that hill and then you fall on it. Who gives a shit? You’re not a martyr, you’re a fucking prick!
If you pause to catch to your breath and hear a voice in your head Echoing calamity and fantasies of death you are just 16, you don’t have to be everything it’s okay to breath, you are not what you’re feeling lately I’ve been terrified, reminded what it was like When shame and grief sunk levity, and mom was losing her mind If you are not for me, who will speak for what we need, It’s okay to cry, it’s us v them from here on Kyle
