Thoushaltnot – 100 Generations lyrics

We ate our young and never blinked an eye
We carved the subway tunnels and prayed to snipers in the sky
We practiced medicine without knowing how to heal
We killed ourselves in dreams a thousand times, always believing it was real
We gave birth silently to jargon, metal, smoke
And mirrors that we kissed until they clouded up and broke
We fed a starving child with an apple's knowing taste
Denying 'til her dying tears the poison with which it had been laced
So father kill your daughter
Mother kill your son
Swallow up the universe
'Til all the killing's done
It happens when you slumber
It happens unaware
Out of every human eye
A hundred generations stare
If you lose your eyes you will see
And if you lose your faith you will believe
If you lose your blood no more will you bleed
And if you lose all your desires, nevermore will you need
If you lose you light you will glow
And if you lose your mind you will know
If you lose your youth no more will you grow
And if you learn to stand your ground, there'll be nowhere left to go
Come here to mend
What's come before will come again
