[ SK ] The Hollowed Children

Due to the silent war we're winning        
The world continues in its spinning        
The world continues in its spinning        
The world continues in its spinning        
Due to the silent war we're waging        
the ends always justify the means        
Simple cogs engaging        
     complex machines        
is what you are        
     In service to        
your country        
     Thanks you        
for your heroic efforts        
     We do        
the dirty job        
     No one wants        
to believe in what they don't want        
to believe in        
You can leave when        
your tour of duty is done        
Until then ...        
Son, you've been drafted        
in a war that can only be won        
by a God gifted, Back-Halfted        
humming hollowed one        
such as yourself        
so be a trooper and good boy        
while we give you these shots        
---tell us if you see the Dots        
Pay attention,        
you little
