EMTs and flashing lights

Long day into a long night

I honestly couldn't believe

The things I was seeing


Black dresses and hushed tones

Wornout faces, ringing phone

I was trying not to believe

The things I had seen


Dead grass and cold stones

One of them our own

I had to believe

What I had seen


Old bones and a busy day

Hard work with no pay

He didn't answer any calls

My heart started to fall

So we drove over there

And found him still in his chair

If I told you you wouldn't believe

The things I can't unsee
