It’s All Collateral

If everyone screamed
At the top of their lungs,
Relinquished their rights
And put up their guns.
If everyone danced
Straight through a fire,
Held their words close
And drank from the mire.

If everyone around
Just shut their eyes tight,
Then maybe we’d live
Much longer than tonight.
But the way things look now
We’ll be ash before dawn;
We’ll be nothing of mention,
Just skeletal pawns.
