And all stood by
In absolute silence
To seemingly hear
Each other cry

Stood in one place
And with one face
With not to do
But to wait to die

People stand near
With eyes shifting slightly
To catch a glimpse of
Reality here

But praying to what?
And saying for what?
There’s nothing to be
But just what we see

And people stood by
And waiting for murders
Murders of men
Murders of them

Laughed for a while
Died with a smile
And waited a turn
To never learn

Some people still say
A time will be turning
There will be peace
Just, you wait and see

There will be peace
But that’s just a yearning
One abstract thought
But you know they never fought

The people must know
There’s no time coming
When some very few
Will let us see all

The power’s with them
To borrow or lend
They must seize it now
Or they can just let it end

But all stood by
In absolute silence
To seemingly hear
Each other cry

Stood in one place
And with one face
If not to do
But to, to wait to die
