screams tearing through
the air
starving for
attention

can you hear the
steel ripping apart the sky
can you hear the
lead bullets sinking into flesh
like ice into a h.o.t. plate

can you hear yourself, I wonder
destroying what little peace

dreams used to have?

oh, oh
it's so loud
oh, oh
it's beating on my eardrums
make it stop, make it stop

can you hear me now?
