Lyrics
Oh,
You were born with the sun
And oh,
You will die with the moon
And everything you thought you had you lost
But now you'd never lose what you don't have
Prayers from above
Never answered quite enough
Now the only one you have is you

With this (cruel?) bitter heart
You were (gone and it hurt?)
Left her naked in the sun

(I'm scared?) from this (cruel?) bitter world
This has only begun
As the bombs are bursting off

Smoke arose
On azimuth glares
Bodies brewed
In frigid winter air
Where family's sons
Are robbed beneath their feet
And hearts conceit

(Above her?)The angel sings
(Distracted?) our eyes to the sea
And we thought that we had
A cause for suffering
And reason enough to die alone
Oh but,

You,
Will this (cruel?) bitter heart
You were (gone and in love?)
Left her naked in the sun

(I'm scared?) from this (cruel?) bitter world
This has only begun
As the bombs are bursting off

With our feet beneath us
With our hands to the sky
We extend our limbs
Begging "Why, oh why?"
Don't fade away

Prayers from above
Never answered quite enough
Looking up
Never offered you too much
Now the only one you have is
