The Line

from by Lung Letters



Life seems so fucking temporary when you're out on the line
Helicopters and screaming bullets and you can hear the wounded cry
The only time I see clearly is in the fog of war
When the confines of morality don't matter any more
Out here the only thing that makes some sense is the will to survive
And the machines all keep moving ripping apart the land
And the boys fire off their guns with a wave of my hand
As for all the looting and desecration of the dead
Our message must be stated clearly now you won't forget what we said
And when the boy soldiers close their eyes they will see what they've done
I can see it's madness and it's just too intense
But it takes a little madness to make any sense
You look on in horror yeah, I know you do
Can't you see the horror - is all for you
Now the bridges are all on fire and the flags are covered in mud
The world has been turned inside out and the crops are drowned in blood
In the morning I got drunk and stared up at the sun
I looked across the valley and felt proud of what I'd done
All this viciousness is my art
Now I've torn the world apart
