  • We're the day birds
    Deciding to fly against the sky
    Within our dreams, we all wake up
    To kiss the ones who are born to die

    We're the greying herds
    Hurting each other with our lives
    Within our dreams, we all wake up
    To kiss the ones who are born to die
    Born to die, born to die

    The drum fish
    They beached themselves in Hara-kiri
    The blackbirds
    They fell in thousands from the sky
    Their red wings
    Streaming down from the higher seas
    Deflected by the grounds

    They crowned the sun
    They crowned the sun
    But I believe that they are free
    When their time was done
    They were drowned by the only One
    But I believe that they are free
    Washed by the sun

    Our statues
    The soaring edifice of our times
    Detracted from the ways of the wise
    The future will view all history as a crime
    So father, tell us when is time to rise

    They crowned the sun
    They crowned the sun
    But I believe that they are free
    When their time was done
    They were drowned by the only One

    But I believe that they are free
    They crowned the sun
    They crowned the sun
    But I believe that they are free
    And we believe that they are free
    'Cause I believe that they are me
    Washed by the sun Writer/s: Serj Tankian
