i wish i knew

Death may come, invisible
Or in a holy wall of fire
In the breath between the markers
On some black I-80 mile

From the madness of the governments
To the vengeance of the sea
Everything is eclipsed
By the shape of destiny

So love me now
Hell is coming
Just kiss my mouth
Hell is here

Little soldier, little insect
You know war, it has no heart
It will kill you in the sunshine
Or just as happily in the dark

Well, kindness is a card game
Or a bent-up cigarette
In the trenches, in the hard rain
With the bullet and a bet

He says help me out
Hell is coming
Could you do it now?
Hell is here

Do you see the sterile soil
Poisoned sky, yellow water
The final scraps of life
Bringing new tears

Wake, baby, wake
Leave that blanket around you
There's no where we're safe

I'm leaving this place
But there's nothing
I'm planning to take

Just you

Just you
Just you
Just you
Just you
