behind these walls, where they linger
i know they're hiding
shadows get bigger
if i broke these rules, and pulled the trigger
what would you do?
we're aiming these words that we're ready to say
in these dug-up, nonexistent trenches
using each other as a shield
saving ourselves behind defenses
do we not understand that this is not all for one?
we have not yet lost, but we have not yet won
all those things we did and said, now we pay the cost
we have not won, but we have not yet lost
