The only girl I’ve ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
On eve in 1945 with just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
Now she’s a little boy in Spain
Playing pianos all filled with flames
All empty rings around the sun
All sing to say my dream has come

Now we must pick up every piece
Of life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on

Now he rides a circus wheel
With your dark brother acting white
Says it was good to be alive
But now he rides a commits flame
And won’t be coming back again
The earth looks better from the stars
It’s right above from where you are
And he didn’t mean to make you cry
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
All empty rings around our heart
This world just screams and falls apart

And now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves at least enough to carry on

It’s where you mother sleeps
And there is the room brothers were born
Indentions in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don’t move anymore
It’s so sad to see the world agree
That they rather see their faces filled with flies
Oh when I long to keep white roses in their eyes
