When Sparrows Fall

Sparrows bleed as trumpets scream They fall to kiss the earth Crimson proof it's not a dream For death has given birth Darkness smiles with broken wings A feathered wake of sorts When death is born no one sings For joy somehow distorts Devils dance and act a fool Just barely out of sight Shadows watch and start to drool While laughing at the light Empty tears, for no one cares It happens every day Far away an angel stares There's nothing left to say Twisted fate, we don't ask why For death will come to all When death is born, we must die As sparrows start to fall
