Lyrics

Walk Away

Written By: Tyler Dykstra

Hold my hand, please don't recoil
It won't hurt you, honestly
I've held dirty needles, been stained with blood
Pushed pushers guns and pushed guns too far
Look right through me and feed my hate
Cast out in Chicago, lying in your waste
My eyes seem glazed, I've become the ignored
12 years is enough, oh take me Lord

Lift your hand and curse the night
You saw me lying there
Hold me close and curse your world
That lets you walk away

Mural stained with young mans blood
Dog eat dog means dying young
Starving, bleeding, cut and dying
Spare change doesn't always stop the rest
Doors don't open, they're safe inside
Whitewashed Christians, afraid to find
Smile singing softly, as if taken in
Just a blindman screaming to the beggars din

Lift your hand and curse the night
It echoes down alleys void of light
Hold me close and curse this world
Buried itself in the lies it lost
Join with me and curse the night
You saw my body lying there
Hold me close and curse your world
That lets you walk away
Just walk away

City painted full by now
Blood of children, beggars, whores
Red stain covers every member
St. Petersburg has closed its doors
Street corners are empty
Just the painters of this mural
Screaming in your silent face
They're dying on the doorstep of the empty world

Lift your hand and curse the night
Echoes down alleys void of light
Hold me close and curse this world
Buried itself in the lies it lost
Join with me and curse the night
You saw my body lying there
Hold me close and curse your world
That lets you walk away
Just walk away

Beggars dying, children crying
gangs are fighting, politic dining
Wars are waged in the backyards of citizens
Graves are laid when nobody cares
Graves are laid when nobody cares
Nobody cares
