Hey You!

Hey you!

Standing on a pedestal,

all proud and tall

Thoughtful and thoughtless,

writing posts on your wall

Do you believe, you know it all?

 

Hey you!

Glorifying death;

and singing laurels for the dead

Talking about sacrifice,

straight from your bed

Do you believe, you know it all?

 

Hey you!

Have you ever smelt warm blood;

the corruption of the rotting flesh?

Have you ever seen life depart;

cadavers, still warm and fresh?

Do you believe, you know it all?

 

Hey you!

Have you ever seen dead turning black;

under the scorching sun?

Have you ever lost a loved one;

a loving father or a beloved son?

Do you believe, you know it all?

 

Do you still believe you know it all?
