John downed the last drops of brandy before he wrote
A note saying I`ll be with you forever
He called his landlord saying they`ll find me on the floor
But not before he sat ready and music was on

´cause this war could not be won
He took his iron twelve gauge gun
And laid eyes on his only son on a picture

Fly on blackened wings

June ate thirty pills that she stole and never woke
A note laid unfinished in her hands
She closed her eyes and floated away into nothingness
In her evening dress she laid beautiful and calm
Her war was over and done
She had no places left to run
She had no reason to stay another day

Fly on blackened wings
