I can't tell you why your children are dying, but I can offer you my sympathy.
And I can't show you where your children are buried, 'cause they're not.
They're not buried anymore.

You can shout it from the roof-tops, you'll be preaching to the choir.
And you better get started on this funeral pyre.

And I wish I could cry tears of blood but I can't, my body just isn't built that way.
And I hope all this suffering amounts to one good fucking thing, but it won't, because we can't see that far.

You can shout it from the roof-tops, you'll be preaching to the choir.
And you better get started on this funeral pyre, and one day I will truly set myself on fire so you can see how dim my light is.
So you can see how dim is my life.

    General Commentcould he possibly be saying "so you can see 'how dim is my life' at the end there?
    i mean, either way it is still a song that makes me want to die every time i hear it, and that i think is essentially the genius of andrew jackson jihad. they ARE saying something, but...they're just saying.
