Lyrics‎ > ‎

Holocaust


Your eyes are almost dead 
can't get out of bed 
And you can't sleep 

You're sitting down to dress 
and you're a mess 
You look in the mirror 

You look in your eyes 
Then you realize 

Everybody goes 
leaving those 
who fall behind 

Everybody goes 
as far as they can 
They don't just care 

They stood on the stairs 
Laughing at your airs 

Your mother's dead 
She said 
"Don't be afraid" 

Your mother's dead 
You're on your own 
She's in her bed 

Everybody goes 
Leaving those 
Who fall behind 

Everybody goes 
As far as they can 
They don't just care 

You're a wasted face 
you're a sad-eyed lie 
You're a holocaust
