Never Mind

Never Mind

[Verse]
The war was lost
The treaty signed
I was not caught
Across the line
I was not caught
Tho 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 have a name
But never mind

[Chorus]
Never mind
Never mind
The war was lost
The treaty signed
There’s Truth that lives
And Truth that dies
I don’t know which
So never mind

(Arabic)

[Verse]
Your victory
Was so complete
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

[Verse]
And all of this
Expressions of the
Sweet indifference
Some called love
The high indifference
Some call fate
But we had names
More intimate

Names so deep
And names true
They’re blood to me
Dust to you
There is no need
And this survives
There’s Truth that lives
And Truth that dies

[Chorus]
Never mind
Never mind
I leave the life
I left behind
There’s Truth that lives
And Truth that dies
I don’t know which
So never mind

(Arabic)

[Verse]
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

[Chorus]
Never mind
Never mind
I had to leave my
Life behind
The story’s told
With facts and lies
You own the world
So never mind

[Chorus]
Never mind
Never mind
I live the life
I left behind
I live it full
I live it wide
Through layers of time
You can’t divide

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 1 reprise] (with Arabic)
The war was lost
The treaty signed
I was not caught
Across the line
I was not caught
Tho many tried
I live among you
Well-disguised
