lyrics

there’s a place far from sight
past barbed wire, past landmines
behind closed doors, front of closed eyes
lay a new nightmare in disguise
where wildest dreams never come true
where vultures fiend for something new
where an empire reigns in emptied veins
a tight-kept veil on a godawful truth

smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks beat in the distance
roaring flames drown out the screams

these sheep dogs, these minute pigs
hate-raid the land, and unsifted nets
roll full to new-tent-city
a concentration metropolis
then send the spent towards the windy graves
towards the fortress behind all this
where bones explode with shattered dreams
where no one knows where the corral leads
if you’re snatched up: you disappear
next stop: the dead end of tears

smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks beat in the distance
roaring flames drown out the screams
smoke stacks beat in the distance
ashes choke the breeze
smoke stacks speak no one listens
roaring flames drown out the screams

conveyors buckle / gears grind into place
womyn, men, children blindfolded and smoking to ease the pain
shoveled into the furnace to be erased

days in black and white
dim and night, an endless winter
why the blue left the skies
and the blood arises as red as ever
red gold soaks the pistons, soaks the hands
tongues towards what’s left of the sun
those aren’t snow flakes on your tongue

burnt like coal
