We keep on burying our dead
We keep on planting their bones in the ground
But they won't grow, the sun doesn't help
The rain doesn't help

If my garden would have a fence
Then the rabbits couldn't just come in
And sit on the grass and eat all the flowers
And shit

Hi, I'm Icarus, I'm falling down
Man for judgment must prepare me
Spare oh God and mercy
Spare

Man, I have a terrible feeling
That some thing's gone awful very wrong with the world
Is it something we made?
Is it something we ate?
Is it something we drank?

Hi I'm Icarus, I'm falling
From the dust of earth
Returning back for judgment we must prepare
Spare oh god and mercy
Spare me

Lacrimosa
Lacrimosa

They keep on burying our dead
They keep on planting their bones in the ground
But they won't grow, the sun doesn't help
And all we've got is a giant crop of names and dates

Hi I'm Icarus, I'm falling down
On this day of tears and mourning
From the dust of earth returning
Man for judgment must spare me
Spare oh god and mercy
Spare me

Lacrimosa
Lacrimosa

Lacrimosa dies ilia
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus
Huic ergo parce, Deus
