Hey your thirsty 
 Walking in the desert all alone 
Hey you're now searching 
Lost in isolation from your soul 
The bullets you bite 
From the pain you request 
You're finding it harder to digest 

And the answers you seek 
Are the ones you destroy 
Your anger's well deployed 
Hey why can't you listen 
Hey why can't you hear 
Hey why can't you listen 

As love screams everywhere 
Hey you now hunger 
 Feeding your mind with selfishness 
Hey you now wander 
 Aimlessly around your consciousness 
Your prophecies fail 

And your thoughts become weak 
 Silence creates necessity 
You're clothing yourself 
In the shields of despair 
Your courage now impaired 
Your crucify all honesty 

No signs you see do you believe 
And all you words just twist and turn 
 Reviving just to crash and burn 
You're fighting to the bitter end 
If only your heart could open up 
And listen
