It's a lesson in progress
How far away can we go?
Everything is progress
As far away as I know
Take a life and make it something less
Please! Anything more then stupid tests
And tests and tests and tests and tests
They've found the answer to my selfishness

Cry,cry,cry
And we hear them sing

Please stop killing us
You know we're oh so fond of dying
Please stop using us
They'll never shut up
Please stop killing us
You know we're oh so fond of dying
Stop using us

It's an acceptable practice
And I am loathe to say
Snuffed out the wicks from a sea of candles
Maybe Jesus would take it away

And we hear them sing

Please stop killing us
You know we're oh so fond of dying
Please stop using us
They'll never shut up
Please stop killing us
You know we're oh so fond of dying
Stop using us

The carousel comes round again
I cry and scream but I pretend
They're running down and I can't chase
Or put that smile out of place

Come they come to take them all away
But I'm not going home
Come they come to take my soul away
But I'm not going home

    General Commentwow, i had a weird feeling it was about abortion, this is a great song, very powerful for the pro-lifers. "take a life and make it something less" - so sad. "how far away can we go?" - so true, how far are we gonna stretch things? we've already stretched things to a point where murder is actually legal in the UNITED STATES of AMERICA!? i cant believe it.
