We fell asleep with fearful eyes on the hills
We’re raised to think there’s something terrible behind those hills
My friends says she understands why I have to leave
So we say goodbye under blankets and cry quietly
You can beg and you can cry, but they’re going to eat you alive
Just as sure as your two eyes, they’re going to eat you alive
Our parents said, “When will you children learn?
Don’t you know that no one deserves a funeral that you have to rehearse?”
I thought I’d never know
I thought I’d never go
They said I shouldn’t go
They said I shouldn’t know
They said I’d surely die
I think I’ll probably die
Well I’m alive!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Pomegranates songs. It's too bad not more people listen to them. My favorite lines = "My friend says she understands why i have to leave, we say goodbye under blankets and cried quietly, cried quietly."
