Your class, your caste, your country, sect, your name or your tribe
There are bodies decomposing in containers tonight

With fifteen cans of spray paint in a chemical swirl
Four winds blowing through her hair
But when great Satan's gone, the whore of Babylon
She caves
The Bible's blind, the Torah's deaf, the Qu'ran's mute
They are pouring over Sanskrit on the ivy league moons

And hold us at the center while the spiral unwinds
Four winds, cry until it comes
And it's the sum of man
A heart just can't contain all of that empty space

Like a newly orphaned refugee, retracing my steps
They said, 'You'd better look alive.'
And I was off to old Dakota where a genocide sleeps
I buried my ballast, I made my peace

She just can't remain with all that outer space
