absurd lyrics – colorful leaves

for every dead person a prayer
for all of them a coffin
no help for those who need it
it’s bare life that counts
a candle for the last hero
here’s to the dead body over there in the field
we are dancing on our graves
understanding is what we lack
let us celebrate the gang rape and slaying
with hands covered with blood
let us eat and drink
in this world’s house of mourning
night after night they return
the pictures of the dead
a sleep in peace of mind
the dead hero he’s buried
the killing now has ended
the weapons are silent
but still thousands are bound to die
because it’s god’s will
