Throw sand in my eyes

Are you afraid 
Are you hurt
Where are you

Stop throwing sand
Into the corners
Of my eyes

You know it
We won’t win
We all do

The lost blood
Should remind us
We’ve been here

Gas and fire
A broken hope
Tunnels, more guns

Will cause vengeance
More hardened voices
The rising youth

Memories of this
Wedge into mind
And hard wire

To mask it
Justify the cause
You crouch down

With your fingers
Held firm together
To gather gold

Death in hand
Your only goal
To mask it

Sand sand sand
Up, away, down
Clouding the sky

You can try
To distract us
Blind our courage

You will not
It must stop
It will end
