Funeral (Single)

lyrics

You know we built our houses
Where we were burning bodies
The ground still remembers
The ground is still bloody

So if there's an above
And this is below
Then surely we can sink no further
And there's nowhere else to go

The stench of death was always here
As far as I recall
As were the sounds devoid of pleasure
Words laced with vitriol

Between now and then
Between us and them
Never will you see
Men and angels breaking bread

As above, so below
Spent is thy litany
Hate thy neighbour
Shake his hand and strike him dead

Weep in fear and wonderment
Of what you have become
A superman, a God on earth
Can't be others 'til there's one

Weep in fear and wonderment
Of what you have become
A superman and death itself
Can't be others 'til there's one

It'd take more than a few men
To put out the word
But they're of little potential
Men fall down and they fold

I call upon my memories now
But some seem to have departed
What I used to know is but a blur
I guess it mattered when it mattered

You know we built our houses
Where we were burning bodies
The ground remembers
The ground is still bloody

You're excused, but not forgiven
For whatever is past and done
For when you couldn't commit
This is a funeral

This is a funeral
This is a funeral
