Dead Men Tell No Tales

lyrics

Oh no!
Halls of light had stolen you before my term
Before my eyes saw Philadelphia
Oh no!
Does the Vagabond steal ten weeks of your worth?
Can existence come undone?

In the war fed world we'll see a spoken state and then
Pushing charges earth ignored in its caustic movement

Is there some lasting trait?
Are we both the same in time?
What could you have been?
What could you have been?

The mourning of my parents for the life that came before
Was like bullets for the guns that fueled all my wars at home
We were left to hold the line against our own attacks
And live through every moment of it while you left alone

In the war fed world we'll see a spoken state and then
Pushing charges earth ignored in its caustic movement

All ignorance and false resentment placed aside
I can't blame you for what's happened here
We can't choose the sword that takes us
Anymore than we can choose our homes
