Occupied Tears

Intro

I forgot to bring you roses
When you hit the floor
Your nouveau poses

Verse 1

Asking for war
Have you forgot the wall?
I've foreseen it all
We've foreseen it all

Pre-
Chorus

Holocaust, you tasted great fear
How could you just occupy another child's tear?

Chorus

Don't you all know?
Don't you all care?
Don't you all see how this isn't fair?
Are we all blind?
Do we not see?
Do we not bleed?

Verse 2

Faint cries of lost limbs
Mimes surrounded by mines
Without warning signs of the great sacrifice

Pre-
Chorus

Holocaust, you tasted great fear
How could you just occupy another child's tear?

Chorus

Don't you all know?
Don't you all care?
Don't you all see how this isn't fair?
Are we all blind?
Do we not see?
Do we not bend to misery?

Post-
Chorus

Of course we all know
Of course we all care
Of course we all see how this isn't fair
We are not blind
Yes, we do see
It's time to end this misery

Bridge

It's time to go up to bed
No more sipping on our regret
Tuck the kids in without worry
No more running out in a hurry
 
No more bombs falling over our heads
No more sirens predicting death
Yes, it's the two state solution
No more glaring through oblivion

Verse 3

Asking for war
Have you forgot the wall?
I've foreseen it all
We've foreseen it all

Pre-
Chorus

Holocaust, you tasted the great fear
How could you just occupy another child's tear?

Chorus

Don't you all know?
Don't you all care?
Don't you all see how this isn't fair?
Are we all blind?
Do we not see?
Do we not bend to misery?

Post-
Chorus

Of course we all know
Of course we all care
Of course we all see how this isn't fair
We are not blind
Yes, we do see
It's time to end this misery

Post-
Chorus

It's no mystery
It's no mystery
