Funereal bells toll in thickening silence
Only statues listen to warfare sirens

It's a sickening curse
Altars cry like birds
For a hungering hearse
Altars cry like birds
Like birds
Have you ever heard?
Altars crying like birds

Tormenting thirst, halo of shrieking birds
Pecking off features, pecking flesh in turns

CHORUS

Sing to your sisters, your brothers are dead...
Sing to your sisters, your brothers are dead...

Shh, won't you listen! As bells toll once again
Kingpins are eaten, silence left us insane

Lyrics (c) Suzi Sabotage
Music (c) Sebastian Holm, Masquerade

    General CommentThe song's about the suffocating silence, that hangs in the air after major wars: when there's only dead bodies left for crows to peck.
