Ashes

When the lies never stop

When revolution becomes the puppet of the top

When your promised future is just lies and slop

We are left with not but ashes


When the earth begins to groan and quake

When the fields continue to bake

When your very survival is at stake

We are left with not but ashes


There is no method to the madness

Every choice laden with doom and sadness

When your children will never experience gladness

You are left with not but ashes


No tears to be shed for me

When I am forced to fight and flee

All I wanted was to be free

And I am left with not but ashes
