lyrics

"bring out your dead"

bring out your loved you lost
"your sons and daughters are gone
miasma filled these homes
now we must let them rest"
bring them out
and place them in the pile
for our dear shepherd
leads them to their grave

"there's no hole that's fit
for my sweet child to lay
I'd sooner end myself
than let them fester
in the mass of dead
in this foul heap of corpses"
the wind grows stale
your face turns pale

you watch the sunrise
the light of dawn
falling from the sky
at lagging speeds

then it hits their face
your only child
no breath in their lungs
no pulse from their blood

it was only days ago
when you held their hand
the light of life
it burned so bright in them

now you feel the pain
your only child
no breath in their lungs
no pulse from their blood
