Lyrics

 

In a moment of emotion
He terminated connection
He went upstairs
and kissed her on the cheek
He could tell she was drifting
In the realm of uneasy conscience
Innocent and childlike
Should be our dreams
 
In a moment of exhilaration
Inhibition was forsaken
In the mirror he could see
their reflection
He saw their eyes don’t shine
Enticing when she was younger
An impulsive attraction to danger
The crime hardly remembered
But we share the pain
 
We have had our fill
Of information
We are standing still
To catch a breath of air
We are half asleep
Under heavy sedation
In isolation
We don’t weep
For American Grief
 
I remember the singing
Our faces turned towards Heaven
Songs of adulation for the King
I came back to this place
To confront my dark emotions
To taunt my inner demons
To come to terms
 
I’ve anguished all I can
For the soul of the earth
I’ve anguished all I can
For the spirit of Man
I’ve anguished all I can
For the killing of the beast   
And the raping of land
And the loss of their homes
And the American grief   
 
We have had our fill
Of information
We are standing still
To catch a breath of air
We are half asleep
Under heavy sedation
In isolation
We don’t weep
For American Grief
