maybe we should take some time
long enough to let the blood dry
on both sides
on both sides

maybe if we just just slowed down
long enough to lay our sons down
we retire
before we retire

the only thing that remains
are graves to dig and rich man's games
that you had to play
that you had to play

the only thing they'll take from me
is a life of peace and dreamless sleep
dreamless sleep
oh dreamless sleep

I guess i'd rather have my limbs
so you've got something to sleep in
then to be free
oh then to be free

brother i'll live in chains
than have your eyes (?)
before a memory
before a memory
before a memory
before a memory
