lyrics

Grace Machine (R.Rusch)

When the noise turns to silence, says the child to the hangman. How do you stand it then? How can you stand it? They don’t stay children for long.
I tell myself I’m salvation. I tell myself that I am mercy.

Go cut them down in the name of peace. Collecting the wounded and dead when I can’t sleep. I don’t wanna carry these ghosts any further. Teach me anything but murder.

Too soon a boy becomes a soldier. No more child, just a hangman. And knows the sound of being watched and has the look on his face of the prisoner of war.
I try to tell myself that I’m salvation. I try to tell myself that I am mercy.

Go cut them down in the name of peace. Collecting the wounded and dead when I can’t sleep. I don’t wanna carry these ghosts any further. Hold up the mirror now, I’ll put my eyes out. Teach me anything but murder.

I can’t tell myself that I’m salvation. I can’t tell myself that I am mercy.
