Bystander

A blanket cross your face
Covers up the black sky
Trees and twisted steel
Stains of blood on earth
Quiet voices murmur
When stars and structures fail

This rush of passing light
Startles me from grace
Ambulances wail
Turn and walk away
Hands absorbed in pockets
As stars and structures fail

Gone are the wonders
You never take the blame

Gone are the wonders
When no one knows your name

Gone are the wonders
We all look the same

Gone are the wonders

Here we go again
Memory´s a pause
Breaking through your thoughts
You can take it out on God
Take it out on life
Take it out on all your darlings

Gone are the wonders
You never take the blame

Gone are the wonders
When no one knows your name

Gone are the wonders
Everythings the same

Gone are the wonders
When stars and structures fail
