The young kids ran into the field

unaware what they wanted and why

Only knowing the wishes of the masses

Handed devices they knew so little about 

as they still little themselves were sent

marched them out to face the foes and mistakes of their grandfathers past

searching to carve out a future 

in diamonds

The young ones staggered out hopeful 

and a few unlucky ones staggered home men 

Living with the demons that had lodged themselves in their hearts 

Staring into the eyes of sinners

that lived in the mirrors
