I turned, I see men.
Their faceless.
Their souls are blind.
They float in the abyss of misery,
Counting their memories.

They lead me to their bodies.
Killed, butchered and never buried.
Decades have passed.
Bodies rotting, names forgotten.
A prayer will lead them to heaven. 

They want me to unchain.
Putting their eyes in my hands.
Floating bodies.
I'm drowning from their tears.
I watch them die, I feel their pain. 

Faceless men, I hear.
Screams from the war spits. 
Their blood covers me,
Wanting me, devouring me.
A prayer I will be.
