Flowers for Mankind

Innocence! Ignorance! It's all the same!
Arrogance, with no sense! We play the game!

And if a force should wipe us out
I don't think I would care
Our kind is a dying breed
With a cross it cannot bear

And in this moment I confide
I give you flowers, watch them die
Is there any hope for peace at all?
And in this moment I confide
You give me flowers, watch me die
Is there any hope for our kind?

Watch me die!

Consolation! Fall of nation! It's all the same!
Bureaucracy! Hypocrisy! We play the game!

And if the stars fall from the sky
My heart won't miss a beat
Enduring terror from ourselves
This life is no great feat

Enduring terror from ourselves

And in this moment I confide
I give you flowers, watch them die
Is there any hope for peace at all?
And in this moment I confide
You give me flowers, watch me die
Is there any hope for our kind?

Flowers for mankind
