You sunk your hands in bloody dirty
But it’s me who’s stained red
You burnt them to a crisp
But it’s my footprint on the ashes

You blew off their heads
But it’s my finger on the trigger
You took took away their breaths
And it’s me who has to pay

A vague shadow in the distance
A distant memory, long gone
No longer about who I was
But what you’ve made us become

Twisted perspective laced with truth and death
The die cast leaving naught but bodies and bereft

Choked and choking on the iron
The leaden lies blood red

The rattle of a thousand shells of metal
Parting like the sea at the tip of my boot
Charred corpses frozen solid
With your face forever printed on their eyes

I can hear their voices
Calling out your name
The name I now carry
A cursed legacy forever in me

We’ve cheated death
Thanks to us
We have no tomorrow

There is no truth
No facts to grasp
No veracity or principle
Only interpretation
