You can't just leave me here
Buried deep beneath ten tons of silence
You won't believe how quickly
Peace turns into bloody violence

Starved of cobbling words
Nothing stirs beneath ten tons of silence
I can't believe how swiftly
Warmth turns into cold defiance

You can't just leave me here
Unforgiven under ten tons of silence
Condemned to lie helplessly
Watch as peace turns to bloody violence

And the stiffening begins
Muscle becomes bone
I am fosilized, calcified
The stupor sets in
Dumb as a stone
I am wide-eyed, petrified
Uncivilized grins
As we suffocate alone
And ten tons are lifted
I am fine

I am fine

Never leave me here
Buried deep beneath ten tons of silence
You won't believe how quickly
Peace turns into bloody violence
