we had to slice up the babies
but got caught just before we got started
no one slept through our crying
haunting ghosts of our dearly departed

these broken lives, "someday" we said
but now you're gone, ashes instead

the last words we had spoken
whisper quiet through all the tall trees
& this chill makes me lonely
as i hold tight to fading memories

ashes & dirt turn into dust
all full of hurt, cobwebs & rust

& i would share with you

& this cold feeling holds me
every time that we veer down this path
& where are the stories
of all our dead friends with no epitaphs

these broken lives / i empty bled
left all alone / since you've been dead

lethargic we step, all struggle & trying
no success for the living
just drowning & dying
a loser's life to be lived all alone
a lucid dream for a sycophant drone
the hate & the pain will always survive
the self destruction from the needle & knife
you've gone your way & there's nothing to do
but take this darkness & share it with you
& i would share it with you

    General CommentThe song is about a range of things, I think the intro part is a reference to the amount of abortions per year, and as the song goes, it just talks about the darkness of life and "broken lives" in general.
