Requiems and a Lullaby

from The Silent Scream by The Dead Birds

/

lyrics

I lie
like a corpse in the frozen ground
midwinter

my eyes
can only see the sky
that clear blue sky

you can keep your heaven
you can keep your loving god
I can do without

you can have your lovers
you can your valentines
i can do without

i could stay right here
and feel as the life comes back
out here
unseen

and the sprouts shoot through my skin
and the blood drains from my pores
i can do without
your precious life

my heart's not beating
my pulse reached it's final stop

my skin starts fading
my bones started turning white
long ago

my thoughts start fading
my memories all gone

i'll disappear
for the ages to find

I will
remain in the soil right here
for you to find

so bring your shovels
and your excavation sites
and dig me out
from the frozen ground

so bring your tombstones
and your requiems
and sing your lullabies
before I turn to stone again
