Untouched for now
But you'll catch it, whole regions bleeding out
High on Champion Hill
Where mothers go prone and daughters spill

They know that time will kill you too
There might be braver men
But theres no heroic tales of them
In slander and slur I'll bury friends
Meet me tonight on highest crest of Champion Hill
If you want me then by god you'll get your fill
I know that time tries
I'll take it arms wide
You'll see that time tries to kill you too
Im already old with you here
