lyrics

I pass you trotting cross the square.
My hazy being faded into air.

But I don’t know you,
I only know the past.
How could I turn to
The sickly stain you massed?
Cuz I adore you and I want this feeling to last.
And I’ll continue, cuz I want this feeling to last.

Nowadays you’re always wearing black.
You reveal to me the devil’s almanac.

But I don’t know you,
I only know the past.
How could I turn to
The sickly stain you massed?
Cuz I adore you and I want this feeling to last
And I’ll continue, cuz I want to kiss your ass.

Fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters,
Let’s care, let’s care for one another.
Dark times, dark times may be upon us.
The peace and love can go beyond this.

What’s your name? Do you have one?
Where’s your home? Do you own one?
Where’s your kin? Do you have one?
Where’s your grave? Did you dig one?
Where’s your wall? Did you build one? (Fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters,)
Where’s your pride? Do you keep one? (Let’s care, let’s care for one another.)
Where’s your mind? Do you use one? (Dark times, dark times may be upon us.)
Where’s your mind? (The peace and love can go beyond this.)

Where’s your mind? (Fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters,)
Where’s your mind? (Let’s care, let’s care for one another.)
Where’s your mind? (Dark times, dark times may be upon us.)
(The peace and love can go beyond this.)
Where’s your mind?
