I used to listen to the sounds of the earth
And hear the birds chirping in their nests
And the wind rustling through the trees
I could hear the earths pulse
Steadily beating in its own silence
I listen to the sounds of the earth
And all I hear are wretched cries
As the white ravens rip apart their prey
I hear bombs exploding across the world
I hear children crying
And adults yelling
I hear the silence of those who seem not to care
I hear the pulse of this filthy world
Through the constant onslaught of its own blasphemous cries
I can hear the sounds of the earth
As it slowly subsides and dies
Can you?
