i have always loved what i've lost
i have always loved after i have lost

each year I'm closer to starting all over - and each day I'm further away
no feeling is final - no chance to survive all the funerals in my brain

all wars are holy wars

i used to thrill to your love
i used to thrill and tremble to your love

each year the coastline gets further from my sight - and each time I drown in the sea
i just want to die while I'm still alive but I can't find the right time to leave

all wars are holy wars

this time i'll try to form an open chain-less mind
each year I'm back here again
i'm up against a wall - everywhere I turn, I'm up against a wall
i'm still waiting for something more

all wars are holy wars
