I see a cross
So rotting and sad
I see a flag
A bloody torn rag

Oh, the games we play
Oh, the lies we tell
Oh, the hearts that are broken
Between heaven and hell

And the stones will fall
Never to rise
And the world will shrug
And close her eyes


In this black night
In these jaws of steel
All our battles lost
Beneath an iron hill

Oh, what damned mankind
And all his woes
And I'd murder Cupid
With his bow

(chorus)

Across this earth
A poison seeps
From house to house
That plague does creep

With smiles and whispers
To blunt ourselves
With fools' gold
For our souls
