When I awoke I hung my head
We are but ghosts, the living dead
As I awaited the sun
The streets gave way to a drunk
Adorned in red

And in the silence of the dawn
I heard him sing a rueful song
Soft and slow
It wrapped around my bones
So I sang along

Desperate hope
Reminds me that I'm alone
But even so
Inside I know
I will see you again

We rose this place up from the mud
Sustained by poor man's blood
We scratch and we crawl
Away from its jaws
But it will swallow all of us

Under boot, it's hard to breathe
They leash us and bind our feet
So say not a word
Or they'll lock you away just like the girl
That they took from me

I fell asleep with moon's return
And in my dreams, these buildings burn
Through the glow
The ash will fall like snow
Upon this earth
