The breath of God is gone
The breath of God is gone

Feel the iron hand closing in
The screams and swallowed by the darkness of the womb

Swearing to a deity in whom they don't believe
Their lifted voices are the pictures of the past

So the choice is made
To strip away a pulse and a chance to love

They said that she would be fine
In a short amount of time
The memories are still splinters in her heart

They're trying to forget and wipe away regret
God forgave them but they won't forgive themselves

The breath of God is gone
The breath of God is gone
The breath of God is gone
The breath of God is gone

Try to take control
Of the lack of self control
Try to take control
you can not kill a soul
We won't forget
So drop the line
We've swallowed lies
murder is not a choice

When will this end?
When will this end?
When will this end?
When will this end?

    General CommentThis song is so awesome, the line "murder is not a choice" really makes you think about how women are given the choice of abortion and just how wrong it is because it's a child that they're murdering. It's so sad

    General Commentyeah. for some reason, i never thought of this song as being about abortion. now that i read the lyrics again with that in mind, it is quite clear that that is what it is about.

    General CommentI love the title to this song, because whether or not you accept that human life starts in the womb determines the rest of the argument.

    This song is such a great representation of the silent death we are surrounded by.
