Leon Nevermind Liedtext

The war was lost

The treaty signed

I was not caught

I crossed the line

I was not caught

Though many tried

I live among you

Well-disguised

I had to leave

My life behind

I dug some graves

You’ll never find

The story’s told

With facts and lies

I had a name

But nevermind

Nevermind

Nevermind

The war was lost

The treaty signed

There’s Truth that lives

And Truth that dies

I don’t know which

So nevermind

Your victory

Was so complete

That some among you

Thought to keep

A record of

Our little lives

The clothes we wore

Our spoons our knives

The games of luck

Our soldiers played

The stones we cut

The songs we made

Our law of peace

Which understands

A husband leads

A wife commands

And all of this

Expressions of the

Sweet indifference

Some call love

The high indifference

Some call fate

But we had names

More intimate

Names so deep

And names so true

They’re blood to me

They’re dust to you

There is no need

And this survives

There’s Truth that lives

And Truth that dies

Nevermind

Nevermind

I live the life

I left behind

There’s Truth that lives

And Truth that dies

I don’t know which

So nevermind

I could not kill

The way you kill

I could not hate

I tried, I failed

You turned me in

At least you tried

You side with them whom

You despise

This was your heart

This swarm of flies

This was once your mouth

This bowl of lies

You serve them well

I’m not surprised

You’re of their kin

You’re of their kind

Nevermind

Nevermind

I had to leave my

Life behind

The story’s told

With facts and lies

You own the world

So nevermind

Nevermind

Nevermind

I live the life

I left behind

I live it full

I live it wide

Through layers of time

You can’t divide

My woman’s here

My children too

Their graves are safe

From ghosts like you

In places deep

With roots entwined

I live the life

I left behind

The war was lost

The treaty signed

I was not caught

I crossed the line

I was not caught

Though many tried

I live among you

Well-disguised
