We all died hanging on

Versions: #1#2
All we died with difficulty
swallowing the last entry
kickingin the the wind
saw the light fade
The cry swept the sun
the air became close
crystals words
the ultimate blasphemy that
Before it was over
remind those who still live
that the price was the life
for the evil done in one hour
Then he slipped out in the cold
a death without leaving
reciting the ancient beliefs
of those who die without forgiveness
Who laughed our defeat
and the extreme shame and how
stifled by the same narrow
get to know the node
About us spread the earth on the bone
and resumed the peaceful path
too upset to reach the pit
with the mist of early morning
The woman who hid in a smile
give us the discomfort of memory
find on the face every night
an insult and a waste of time
Grown throughout a grudge
which has the smell of dried blood
what was then called it pain
is only a speech suspended.
