Victims Of Victims


Who am I? Am I a giant fluke?
What am I doing here?
Give me a living look!
Wide-eyed on the planet -
Is this all there is to say and think and do?

Why am I? What am I learning here?
The rank and file of society
Gives me cheap souvenirs.
Time shakes its ancient head and says:
What have we ever learned that’s real?

Returning the ring and the key;
Thank you for finally setting me free.
Forgiveness spells liberty.
We're all victims of victims.
We run on a hope and a dare;
How many acts of self deception
Till we know - we are despair.

We're like the dawn in the mist,
Eternally craving, the hunger won’t desist.
Knowing that time’s running out
While we suffer like victims of victims.
We are the Lords of Confusion -
We are the blind, sensing our way through the dark.

We are Confucius in a trivial world -
We are the wisdom that’s seldom heard -
We walk alone, universes apart -
We're a silent tear, falling inwards.
We are the takers of a taken land -
There’s nothing for us, none to understand -
We are descending, sliding down the scale
In a minor key -
We’re a silent tear, falling inwards.

Look at the eyes of the young.
The sign says “I’m hungry”.
Around her neck it’s hung
Like a poster of shame.
We taught her to write
But she doesn't know her name.

You never know who you are
Till you know whose you are.
How many acts of miseducation
Till we know we need redemption?

We are Confucius in a sinful world -
This is the wisdom of the fall unfurled -
We walk alone, universes apart -
We're a silent tear, falling inwards.
We are the takers of a taken land -
There’s nothing for us, none to understand -
We are descending, sliding down the scale
In a minor key -
We’re a silent tear, falling inwards.

Que sera sera.
It’s only life after all.
Easy come, easy go.
And the final score is nil.
