​I Was A Soldier

This song is by Hanging Garden and appears on the EP I Was a Soldier (2013).

Watch closely, loving mother
The world as we know it will fall
Listen closely, mother
While their voices still call

Hear the laments
Faltering little by little
Hear the voices still linger
Waiting for deliverance

Waiting
To no avail
We pass the time
Slowly running out
Waiting
Until stagnation
Will be the worm
To conquer us all

See the remnants
Crumbling little by little
Hear the voices still linger
Waiting for deliverance

See your children, dying mother
They are bleeding out
In a trembling letter, they carve
Heir epitaph upon your breast

In silence the children stand
With no air to breathe
They suckle upon your fl accid chest
That seeps but poison
Their fetal frames
Writhing in death
