SWEET SURRENDER

 

Sweet surrender,††††

where are you now?

I hope for your return soon,††††

a struggle's come down.

Is this a fight to the finish,††††

may I not give up?

I've no need for victory,††††

in a world so messed up.

The bombs have been landing,††††

travesty prevails,

I fear for my life,††††

and all for whom I care.

And so I wave the white flag,††††

and wait for my orders;

Show me the victors,††††

and I'll cross the border.

But I fear no one has won,†††††

we've all lost this war;

And so I'll stay in my bunker,†††

too scared for much more.
