Million Dead - Relentless lyrics

The footnote swallows the page

Today
New York
Kind of looks like Beirut,
Beirut
Never looked like New York
New York
Kind of cuts to the quick
Quickens

The footnote swallows the page
The dispossessed define the dying age

We were so wrapped up in the internecine strife
Of the last of the so-called 'European' centuries,
My compadres,
We didn't see it coming
So the footnote works its way up from the bottom of the page,
Filled with a certain understandable sense of rage,
At justice unforthcoming.

I have seen,
Two feet
Standing proud in the sand,
Cathedrals
Worn away by the rain,
New dawns
Bringing season's change,
Relentless
Relentless
