Only the blind man can see
The apple falls far from the tree
You’ll never hear the black bird’s song
A kiss of life won’t last too long
At the end of it all

Unstitch your heart if it stings
A puppet cut loose from his strings
You’ll never hear the black bird’s song
A kiss of life won’t last too long
At the end of it all

Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Drop down and bow on their knees

It’s time I beg for
The swaying pendulum
Before it sleeps inside its glass cage
And god I’ll miss you
The pain won’t go away
Even if our feelings stay alive
An empty stare
A gasp for air
In the end you’ll hear
A mother’s call her hero falls
At the end of it all

Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Forgive me angels for broken truth
I’ve seen how they made our kings
Drop down and bow on their knees
Drop down and bow on their knees

We ignored the sacrifice
Laughed while walking on thin ice
If only our young night
Had just one more day to live
