Weave On

  • Weave on sisters of the night
    On your loom of pain,
    Try and stitch the darkness through the light
    Weave on property and crime, the wars and waste
    Give our souls a break from the hunger,
    For the profits and the saints

    Stitch it on, the weapon's drawn
    And the children's playing and their fathers fell
    In unmarked graves with your fingers pale and numb
    Just pray

    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Just you still weave on

    Feed on sorry sons of state
    Preaching salvation, while we fall with such amazing grace
    Feed on love of money, love of race
    Disrespect of country,
    And of neighbor's neighbored in our hate

    Stitch it on, the brothers gone,
    And the lives they gave to the foreign graves
    With your fingers pale and numb
    Just pray, just pray

    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Just you sisters weave on,
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh you sisters just weave on, on, on!

    These are the plans, the words will leave a mind arranged ?
    You there share this pain,
    Withdrawn from this place ends speedily
    Lest the harsh, smite your mind, I'll sow with madness
    How dare you adjust the cowardice
    I am ready to endure with him whatever must be
    I am ready to endure with him whatever must be

    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh, you sisters weave on
    Weave your stitching purple, blue and red
    Just you sisters weave on,
    Let the blood run through your thread
    Oh you sisters just weave on, on, on! Writer/s: STEVEN SATER, SERJ TANKIAN
