And now my words have died Without smoke Without a last sputtering of spit. There are no ashes No burnt pieces for me to keep.
And now my words have died Without a last strong gasp Without a mark of nails dragged. There are no etchings No last message for me to decode.
And now my love is gone Without a residue of memories Without any final words. There are no photographs No love letters for me to cherish.
And now my love is gone Without a fight Without suppressed emotions kept down. There are no regrets No second chances for me to go back.
And now the last drop of water has dried Without a ring on the table Without a crack in the ground. There are no slippery edges No soaked soil for me to collect.
And now all the water has dried Without a river Without a cloud of hope. There are no oceans No seas for me to reach.
I warn you my dear hearts The end is nearer than you know. The earth is dying And so are our hearts, Our insides ridden with cancer Our blood drenching the hands of our friends. The animals are up against us Because we, we did them wrong And mother nature furious, Is breaking on us.
And I warn you my dear hearts, Do not go, do not die Without an apology. All our lives The lives we stole From the genocides to wars To the deaths we delayed, I warn you my dear hearts, The bodies we polluted With our bare hands and thighs, Do not, do not forget To apologize For all the blood we drank.
I tell you, I tell you It is never the end of the love, The disappearance of the words That hurt me, It is the fact that they went unannounced, Silently, quietly In my sleep Everything around me died And I couldn't even weep.
So cry out your apologies, Your last words of thanks The end is nearer than you think So blow your horns out As we leave. We were a storm A plague upon others So go out with your hands folded And pray all our sins Are in due time forgiven.
