From the 2009 Album “From the Storm to the Sun” (buy the CD or download from: itunes | amazon | bandcamp)

he was eighteen
just tasting life, sacrificing
for the exotic rhetoric
and glory

but he died
with his guts in his hands
begging
not knowing that his blood
would bring them money

how does it feel
to purchase their pain
how does it feel
to brandish their blood
how does it feel
to be killing your brother

keeping your image iced
is at the cost of his life
this is the village raid, the darkness
the 120 days

is this what they fought for
is this what they died for
keep on spending that blood money
