Friendly Fire

lyrics

[War began on a chilly autumn day. Efferg Al is lost somewhere in the battlefield. Tempting to reach his allies he gets ambushed by an enemy. He shoots first. It wasn’t an enemy but one of his allies and close friend Alvarez.]

Efferg Al: I see you crawling slowly
with blood flowing on your skin
Well I agree, we must quit this battlefield
‘Cause it’s a plague penetrate you like bullet

Alvarez: Mother I’m afraid of the sky
Father I’m afraid of what’s inside!

Efferg Al: Oh, well! Look at the lonely clouds
We are so far away
See, that’s what I was asking for
Stand up! Let’s dig a way!

Alvarez: Have I the right to leave you majesty
I can’t stand no more
Have I the right to tell you my last will
before I roar

Efferg Al: Oh! Oh! No! Oh!
You don’t need to go
Leaves are falling
but you have just arise

Alvarez: Mother I’m afraid of the sky
Father I’m afraid of what’s inside!

Efferg Al: See now the road we have taken
We are so close from there
Look! That’s what you were intended
Run and forget the threat

Alvarez: Oh! I think your right
Leaves do fall but I am not
My time is not come
Quick! Before it’s too late

[Efferg Al succeeds to bring his friend to the nearest field hospital and leaves the tent in a state of shock.]


[Meanwhile at the field hospital, Alvarez is on heavy opioid to ease the pain of his wounds. He slowly loses his mind as he hallucinates the nurses as little white fairies taking care of him.]

Alvarez: I feel strong, feel dizzy
I’m gone, breathe easy
Please me! White fairies!

The Doctor: Now you have recovered
No more bleeding wounds
Well, you’re good to go!
