Who Died in Our Back Yard?

lyrics

This worlds an open casket
Leave these bones out to dry
Can't believe they were dying
Last I saw through those eyes

I am falling
I am crawling
I am dying
I am dead
I will scream
Released from the pristine
Sickness creeping in my head

10 20 30 40
How much longer can we abort these
Facts of sorrow
bodies borrowed
bodies stolen
forcibly solemn life
Have emotions drained
From the official body of concentrated law
Well what is law?
Deportation?
In a sick way filled with destruction and death
Who?
Who died in our backyard

Who died in our backyard
Who died in our backyard
Who died in our backyard
Who died

10, 20, 30, 40,
how many more till we abhor these
Facts of sorrow bodies borrowed bodies stolen
Dehydration, execution by extremes of heat and dry
No one listens, no one tries
it's easy to ignore
It's easy easy easy to ignore
Easy easy easy to ignore
Easy easy easy to ignore
It's easy...
It's easy...
