Today's A Great Day To Learn Something New.


My head hurts
My nose burns with the smell of blood
I feel broken; crushed from the inside out
My fear, it has no bounds
And my life is on the ground
And I'm alone.
Somebody save me.

You're so dumb; you think this is the end
It's really just the start
You're misled; you think this world is good
It's sheathed in hate and war
People run wild in the streets,
Running for their lives
And I'm alone
Somebody save me, save me; I'm lost.

I've no memories of home; I only see the future:
Death and darkness; blood and gore
I just can't take this anymore
But I've nothing left
And my heart's been blown to pieces.

You're so dumb; you don't know anything
Cause I'm not here by choice
You're misled; please understand through the dark
Hear my tiny voice
People run wild in the streets,
Running for their lives
A blast goes off near my head
And I'm alone
Somebody save me, save me; I'm lost.

Please stay; I've no one left but you
Everyone I know is dead
I'm trapped here in the smoke
Alone
Praying for my life
Please hear me here.

I know
Nothing but death anymore.
I am
Dead, too, inside
The smoke clears
I see no life around me
And even as my resue comes
I see the holes, I see the blood, I see the rags the poverty the sickness and I see it
All alone.

Somebody save me, save me
This more than hell on Earth
Somebody save me, save me
Lest I burn
Somebody save me, save me
Before I die at the hands of war
Because I'm alone
Please save me,
I'm lost.
Somebody save me, save me; I'm lost.
