12 billion light years
4 billion living
One more born every minute
wanting, wanting everything
needing, needing everything
Get on our knees, on our knees and pray

27 crosses

One less in this hell
one more in that one
One lesson learned too late
touching, touching everything
touching, touching everything
Get on our knees, on our knees and pray

27 crosses

Enter, the ritual's in full swing
Savage dance,
Vulture choir,
Random number,
We embrace, and we fall. ..

This is for mother, this is for father
This is for everything I wanted
This is for sister, this is for brother
This is for everything I counted

Who is this for?
