Up In Arms

If stand fair and just
Then fall to the dust 
When dead on the ground
Then rise with the sound 

There’s no escape, this life is difficult
I’m eating dirt and grinning wide 
Red roses wilt and violets pass away 
But lonely turtles crawl inside 

Stop time find a grip
Rewind, pause the song 
No luck losing hand
Still time grinding on 

There’s no escape, this life is difficult
I’m eating dirt and grinning wide 
Red roses wilt and violets pass away 
But lonely turtles crawl inside 

I can’t help you John if you won’t let me in
Can’t buy your love my wallet is drained bone dry
I can’t win this war but it seems you’re up in arms
The desert dirt has shined down upon the sun
