Lyrics[edit | edit source]

I keep praying
Why do you feel nothing?
Why do you injure one another?
Why? Aggressive culture of despotism.
Why? You never win the cursed war.


Now the fire has burnt out
And what is left is built on ice
This sounds like heaven
I vaguely hear a moan of pain
It's a solemn note.
