RIBBONS
Written by VELTA

A ribbon's knot
I haven't untied it
Name it and I've tried it
Feels like I'm dying
Feels like I'm dying

Consolations won't ever reach me
Hit so hard beneath me
In such rapid fire

I'm weaving through the swarms
A soldier in my arms

I am better off planting flags near the mines
I am better off without blood in my eyes
A ribbon on my shooting side

Timing and measuring the spaces
Forty, fifty paces
Bury the weapons
Where no one can get them

Fill the tanks and ignite the starter
I will be your martyr
I'll be your martyr

Hiding in the tombs
Breathing in the fumes

I am better off planting flags near the mines
I am better off without blood in my eyes
A ribbon on my shooting side
