"But it took so many dead to learn / You could not hold a conversation"


I already know the question to
Your answer yet I wonder if you
See what I mean of what might have been
With backwards eyes which have never seen
Except what is sealed within your head
Turning tight circles till you are dead

The machine knows no hesitation

Freedom is slavery (turn turn turn)
Unequivocal evocation
But it took so many dead to learn
You could not hold a conversation
Our world is on fire now "let it burn"
You say as you make night of our day

You never saw the light anyway

Curfew and the night runs red
Is that all? Yes that is all
No not heaven hell instead
First we rise and then we fall:

Deadline (and the line... goes... dead)
