lyrics

She's here
Always
She's called Liliana
No mother and no father

They both
met bullets
It was early morning
But there's never any warning

We mourn
Paris
Because they're part of Europe,
Connected to the windpipe

And then we
Doze off
We're not interrupted
We're in a good neighborhood

We keep
Their culture
The killing and the dying
Clip their wings, they're flying

We are
The first world
We keep the separation
By patiently ignoring them


That day
Did we hear the dim explosions
Was that
A tremour in the double glazing
How quickly
Did we continue conversation
Syria
Couldn't be further away
