A Thousand Suns

God save us, everyone.
Will we burn inside the fires of A Thousand Suns
For the sins of our hand, sins of our tongue
The sins of our father, the sins of our young?

God save us, everyone.
Will we burn inside the fires of A Thousand Suns
For the sins of our hand, sins of our tongue
The sins of our father, the sins of our young?

We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.” –Oppenheimer

I used the dead wood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocents Burning In The Skies
I filled my cup with the risin’ of the sea
And poured it out in an ocean of debris
Oh.

I’m swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don’t apologize
I’m losing what I don’t deserve
What I don’t deserve.

We held our breath when the clouds began to form
But you were lost in the beating of the storm
But in the end, we were made to be apart
Like separate chambers of the human heart
No.

I’m swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don’t apologize
I’m losing what I don’t deserve
It’s in the blackened bones
Of bridges I have burned
So don’t apologize
I’m losing what I don’t deserve
What I don’t deserve.

(Guitar Solo)

I’m swimming in the smoke
Of bridges I have burned
So don’t apologize
I’m losing what I don’t deserve
The blame is mine alone
For bridges I have burned
So don’t apologize
I’m losing what I don’t deserve
What I don’t deserve.
What I don’t deserve, oh.
What I don’t deserve.

I used the dead wood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocents Burning In The Skies.
