There are words I dare not speak
and some I will forever keep
Because to tell you how I feel
would mean my fate in flames to seal.
Dirty hands and dirty feet
your thoughts are yours to keep
nothing to explain and not much left to say
but to tell you to walk away
Leave the buried bones where they are
and do not wander your thoughts so far
because here with me you have a home
to live knowing you are not alone.
Within the sand you may find
the secrets you try so hard to hide
along with the words I dare not say or speak
as a reminder of where true evil reeks.
