lyrics

Oh ache and bleed for bodies thin and bleeding
Do my eyes through pages like a window see
To a war without a key though the cats my eyes preceded
Chasing blinded mice into the fray
Now rest my eyes on angry ugly thinkers
In ivory skin from towers build with pain
Shedding earthly light the other side of Eden
And grasping at frames to make their case

They don’t know their words build prisons
They still believe their tongues silver speak
They can’t see the tongues of young children
Carry venom more fatal than a grown man’s fist
They don’t know
And they don’t care
They don’t know
And they don’t care
They don’t know
And they don’t care

They twist their words like Iron into bars
And trap the brilliant minds of lovers in the stars
Steal the twinkle of their eyes for their delusions
And they call it a solution
For they have never had to dream
Of escaping anywhere but their own bed
Like the grip of another man’s fingers
Or the fear of waking up dead

They don’t know their words build prisons
They still believe their tongues silver speak
They can’t see the tongues of young children
Carry venom more fatal than a grown man’s fist
They don’t know
And they don’t care
They don’t know
And they don’t care
They don’t know
And they don’t care
