Men Don't Bleed
They Just Die

 

I O U nothing
keeping my blood to myself
as your hate falls off the shelf
caught by me
I won't bleed
for nobody
but me

 

tried to escape
pushed back in the race
try to get to my place
but just can't keep pace
Drill sergeant screams in my ear
trembling with a mixture of anger
and fear

 

All the stars in the sky
shine to be 
but we can't see
with all the city light
So it is
With you and me

 

Rivers flow backward against the shore
Killing the poor
Those who have much
only want more
Striping this earth of life
We'll soon find we can't breath

 

All this war
Don't get me started
I've seen dead men walking
I've heard dead men talking
I've felt dead men cry
It never stops
and they don't know why
