A Dead Snake's War

You can't keep on fighting
Endless
Leaving us behind
Just to get even with them
Your time and your energy are wasted
You've become
Just another tool
Just another mindless robot

It's a lost cause
It was lost long ago
What's the use in denying it?
Lie to yourself
No longer
Lay down your weapons
Make a fresh new start

We're here
We've always been here
Waiting
For your return to sanity
And to the land of the living
Gotta face it sometime
Might as well be now
Some battles
You just can't win

So give up
And come on home
Don't you think?
It's way past time you should?
Time marches on
Now so must you
For it's sad but true
No one man can conquer
A dead snake's war
