As I roam this land collecting treasures,
paired bits of silver in place of souls
the cost simply cannot be measured
the reaper rejoices on fire as we supply hot coals.
Just parts and pieces, sands in wounds ran deep
despair written on every evacuated face.
it brings visions that haunt you in your sleep.
to take a living from a dying place
The wind whips up a storm
skewing my view of the field before me.
where strategy applied to men in uniform
left to burn by sacrificial decree
leaves countless flocks of vultures,
picking away at the bones
as these rotten clashing cultures.
continue the big game of sticks and stones.
Cadavera vero innumera,
corpses make landfall on the coast
they do not know what awaits
as they march in file off of boats
into the dead zone where orders dictate fates
souls to meet the reaper face to face
set foot on the field where many have already died.
When this soul moves on in search of a resting place
St peter turns away, his rejection justified.
Theres no paradise for those who cast violence
bullets and bombs fall on homes by the score.
It terrifies and scorches leaving lifeless silence
bullets and bombs the noise of unholy war.
