lyrics

falling through
what life we knew

why do you want to crush
your own creations into dust
and ash that scatters into drains

the blood out of our faces
watching as our future disappears
with no remains

holding hands and
silent prayers with
strangers in the square

tryin' hard
to embrace
our overwhelming fear

the physics warp of gravity
as bodies stretch and rip then rend
disconnected from any uniformity

I jolt awake
my sheets are damp
the morning calls
but I can't help to think
why must death torment its prey?
