Tears of blood,
Echoing cries
Of the lost souls,
Drowned in a sea of lies.

Our hope and future, spent,
On what we can never retain.
Destruction immeasurable to man,
All for no gain.

Horrors unimagTears of blood,
Echoing cries
Of the lost souls,
Drowned in a sea of lies.

Our hope and future, spent,
On what we can never retain.
Destruction immeasurable to man,
All for no gain.

Horrors unimaginable,
Like no other worldly strife,
How can we continue,
When all is destroyed,
When death is life.

Too many sorrowful newspaper articles and tearful songs inspired me to write this.
