I’m beginning to think my cries do not have a sound. When I raise my head above the ground I see weeds feasting on souls, The red sky is filled with holes And blood pours out of its pores And the screams are like ongoing thunder As my attention is split asunder-
Whom do I help? I Alone As I am? Should I reach the starving infant Or cradle the abandoned child? Should I attack the invading enemy Or love those whose thoughts have gone wild?
Even if I had an army, I am alone as I am And my people follow the chains Of one command.
I am alone As I am, And my limbs only reach so far. Every wrong step Inflicts a scar And while you’re kind enough to Lend me your shoulder I am alone as I am And I grow colder.
I am alone as I am And when a link is cut I hang from my neck, I hang from the hands of others Who’ve chosen to save me! Me from amongst the dead! Why me? I Alone As I am?
