From the east rose the sun
Carrying shadows of hearts to be won
To the west, shining shores
Afforded by a legacy of past wars
Blood has dried on their feet
Spilled by every foreigner they did meet
They fled from what's left of home
Chasing the silence ahead they did roam

Bodies fall from the sky
Inheriting loose threads to weave every lie
Modern steel could never match
What a spirit of the jagged land could catch
Swollen hands, they crawl through heaps
Searching for the ideal contracts to keep
Poisoned minds casting stones
Divided to dust derived from broken bones

A friendly face paid for no more
Favors as empty as who they speak for
Paranoid are the nerves
And the warrior's preservation it serves
Childrens' eyes, they watch the door
As mother gently holds them down to the floor
Invaders tire, just like the last ones
Mountains won't be moved by them nor their sons

Turn around
Turn around
Turn around
The peace you seek will never be found

Noise and atmosphere smashed into pop. A fission of electronic beats, buzzing synthesizers, and blaring guitars drenched in reverb.
