Track Name: What Had Taken Years to Put Together Was Destroyed in One Moment
a borrowed prayer died
before it hit your lips

your grandfather was the one who taught you it

(to speak in troubled times, to carry you to port)

now mechanical, it seems so meaningless

and what do i think?
death is death is death.
and no amount of prayer will change that

and anyway,
time is better spent on things you can change
