and so it goes
the victims never know how it came
when the blood so sweetly flows
into the blessed virgin snow
that shines so serene in the light
the clearest crystal winter's night
sky's in flames, so many still the same
but i'll be coming home tonight
this stench, this stain on my hands
they say they'll clean this whole damn land
suicidal brides and best laid plans
so very hard to understand
well i'm just some guy from the fields
what understanding could i feel?
as they hug my knees
and plead and scream and squeal
well the pain it can't be real
the spluttering spent sparks in their eyes
some kind of blessing in disguise

they told me first as my mother gave birth
pulled aside
and whispered: "son, take heed
the devil dwells in greed"
and the whole fucking village could see
every rescued soul but me
in school they fed us evidence and rules
soon even i was full
and the doubt dulls down after time
push to the front of every line
soak in shit too long and soon you're it
every homicidal bit
every breath and every inch
every superficial glitch
every long-forgotten itch
every skull they calmly split
every child in the dirt
of a thinly covered ditch
every gramme and every grain
of the body-smelling grit
every wire in every fence
every stone and every brick
every train bound for glory
in a dreamt-of bedtime story
as your daddy tucks you in
before the hammering begins
before the sledgehammers begin
