King's taking back the throne
The people, they all grow
And choose what they want written on the stone
All quiet and alone
You can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of here
I know I wanna fight, I wanna die
Just tell me what to say
Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope
Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone
Something in the air
The people they all sit and stare
And tell me what they point to tell me where
And tell me…
Who's gonna throw the very first stone?
Whose gonna re-set the bone?
Sitting with his head in a sling
I hear the soldier sing
Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope
Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone
Sun, shine a light
Someone take me, teach me how to fly
And onto something for which I would die
But I just don't know what
And know I can taste the fear
Lift me up and take me out of hear
You make it all concise and clear
You know I'm gonna fade
Working for the church while your family dies
Little baby sister gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love will die without a hope
Hear the soldiers groan
All quiet and alone
