Grieving each others lives

Holding this in mind

That if we fall, we all fall

And we fall alone

 

The calming sincerity of steel machines

Have consumed our euphoria

Transforming us into muted dreams

Dreaming of the day that

 

We attack

Attack, attack our fatal servitude

We attack

Attack, attack with pesticide

We attack

All the years of propaganda

We shall attack!

 

Bombs illustrate what we already know

Candles cry towards the sky

Bracing your plants of a polluted coast

Dreaming of the day that

 

Was the philosophy of displaced minds

The bombing of all homes and villages?

Truth is the only sort we demise

Pleading till the day that

 

Attack all the homes and villages

Attack all the schools and hospitals

You have attacked all the innocent villages

We shall attack!
