Nothing Given

Don't tell me about destiny
Because I've seen it's shadow
Creeping like poison
Across whole continents
Devouring the innocent
And smiling, shark-like
While we prayed
To hollow idols

Our great slogan of salvation
Lies in ruins
A defeated witness
It never had a chance
Not in these trenches
Where the dead sing
Like joyful prophets
Of a scorched future
