Red Candle

unnamed

There is a deep sorrow in our soul
So diabolical too painful to be told
Our shame coupled with our fears
Shall we run or shall we be defiant
Shall we stay
Shall we pray
Or shall we bow
Maybe when you’re done killing us all
Maybe, just maybe, we shall serve your god.

Our town is littered with corpses
Friends we use to know, hands we use to hold
Our buildings turned into ashes
Where our service use to hold
Next to the school we use to go
So shall we run or shall we be defiant
Shall we stay
Shall we pray
Or shall we bow
Maybe when you’re done killing us all
Maybe, just maybe, we shall serve your god.

She use to be our girl, the world joined to sing our sorrows
Only for a time, before she got tired
Hope was birthed, everyday we hoped to see her tomorrow
We don’t know how long we shall grieve, there are no more tears to drop
So shall we run or shall we be defiant
Shall we stay
Shall we pray
Or shall we bow
Maybe when you’re done killing us all
Maybe, just maybe, we shall serve your god.
