For whom the gun tolls
Bow before a war

Some tears never will
Cry for mankind
Even the dead cry
Kill your friend, I don't care

No need to forgive

like meeting an old friend
"Time to die, poor mates,

everyone prays the same way
"Your praying is in vain

"Not a hero unless you die Our species eat the wounded ones"
Drunk with the blood of your victims
Lust for fame, a deadly game
"Run away with your impeccable kin!"
"Good wombs hath borne bad sons"
Cursing, God, why?
Survivors' guilt

Redeemers of this world
"How were we supposed to know?"
Four pink ones
Two black ones
