lyrics

It's as though I'm made of glass:
An invisible me that nobody sees.
Is there some kind of... innate defect...
That wrote my so-called 'destiny"?

The hour tolls eleven
And they begin to move the doors.
"A woman knows her place in life;
Daughters must die to win our wars".

Can you hear us?
Or are you too involved to see?
Invisible dress-up dolls,
Lined up and eager to please.

Listen closely to the screams -
The suffocating silencing.
And in the front, the mirrored ones,
The roses they grew were strapped to their guns.

The trenches veins ran thick with red.
The killing fields were paved with embers and lead.
And nothing but the sound of rain.
Bent like beggars, we bowed our heads.

So silently we packed and left,
The toy soldier and I.
Thoughts drifted to the flowers,
Scattered about, broken and dead.

Marching victims, women of war.
Eleven more coffins filled with roses.
They dried off their tears and hushed their despairs,
yet erect stood the cannons that had buried them there.

Listen closely to the screams -
The suffocating silencing.
Listen closely to the screams -
The suffoca'ing silencing.
Listen closely to the scream -
The suffoca-
