Bring Them Home

Time is a wicked thief
Daylight, but the time is wrong
Sunlit hours in an endless night

Time, you are merciless
Did you forget their names?
How is this happening?
Do you not hear their screams?

Break the clock
Flip the hourglass
We’re running out of time

We’ve got lives in our hands
The clock is haunting me
Tick, tick, tock
Taunting me

Time, have you no conscience?
Precious, precious lives.
