The Damned

We toil,

Turning rocks into sand;

Until,

We can no longer stand;

We fall,

To our knees and hands;

And so we crawl, we crawl!

We are the damned!

.

Sightless,

In darkness we do dwell;

Hopeless,

Trapped deep within this hell;

Lifeless,

Body just an empty shell;

We are the godless!

We are the damned!

.

Stolen,

From our family;

Taken,

To a life of misery;

Forgotten,

Erased from memory;

We are forsaken!

We are the damned!

.

Can’t remember the smell of the fields,

Or how the sunlight feels;

Can’t remember the stars in the skies,

The light shining in our eyes;

Can’t remember the sound of birdsong,

‘Cause we’ve been down here far too long;

Can’t remember how it felt to stand,

We are the damned!
