Dancing

Vodka brains
Screaming and whirling
Bloodlust eyes
The madness deep inside
No mercy, no regrets
No pity either.

So much more to do
Before the cleansing is done.
Then we will be free
We will drink to rejoice
We will drink to forget.

Vodka Brains
Madness inside
Twirling, Whirling
Screaming out our hate
Dancing once again.

Raped and abused
She can only sit and stare
Through nightmare eyes
At the soldiers dancing,
The children, the old, the women
Their mutilated bodies
Lay forsaken on the village green,
Soon the dance will begin again
When the soldiers come for her,
The soldiers dancing once again.
