TITLE. LYRICS

Unused lyrics

Day of the lords

We won't forget you on the day of the lords
When our hearts stopped
When we put up the boards
To relax from all this sickness of words
To escape from the collapse of our worlds

We won't forget you, though in violence you go
As the wheels turned in the theatres below
An escape from the ends never met
In apartments with the lives not formed yet

You never really understood
You never tried to change our minds
As long as you were in control
As long as we could spare the time
And 'cause you needed to win on the
day of the lords

We won't forget you on the day of the lords
In a new town, just clutching at straws
With the door shut, now the running had ended
And a last thought of the chances surrendered
