lives are lost and i will be the only one to lay flowers
the only one to shed a tear
the only one to mourn
the lone voice to cry out
something so beautiful has died
a seed drown in vain, a stem cut without shame
no chance for growth, no chance to bloom
i'll lay a flower to your name, you could not live like i do
this is your funeral song
a grave is a grave and i will grieve
why can't you see, eyes averted
lead to compromise
unable to choose a slave to separation
selfish satisfaction
flowers lain for lives taken
by your hand, severed
sever the hand that takes this life
lay flowers, repercussions
to mourn what couldn't be
