lyrics

Seven times
Your mindless rhymes
As the needle stings
And the test tubes fill with dreadful things
You're spinning round
From the words you found
With arguments you've buried underground

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you so

The choir sings
As gun fire rings
From the wars above
As nurses patch my arms with rubber gloves
It's sad but true
That when morning comes
The dead will rest to the beat of cadence drums

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you
Through the wars in the streets
And the hospital sheets
The letters will read
"I miss you so"

So if the death does show
Charging crossing tolls
I'll say, there's nothing living to revoke
So dream of sleeping
Movement creeping
And if we're out of stone
I'll carve anything of permanence to find my home
And with watermelon effects I'm pardoned

Say, you say that you'll wait
Through air raids you pray
When letters will fade
I miss you
Through the wars in the streets
And the hospital sheets
The letters will read
"I miss you so"
