Somewhere on this road
A house shuts out the night.
It resembles any other house
In a certain kind of light.

In this house there was a gathering
Of uniformed men.
In this house the plans were made
Of how and where and when.

In this room there was blood spilled,
And marks upon the wall.
In this room the deals were made
That compromised the soul.

And in this box lies buried
Photographs and files.
In this box are the melodies
Of the pain behind the smiles.

An unexpected guest
Has travelled through the night.
He came upon the house
He had memorised the site.

He climbed a flight of stairs
He opened up a door.
It was there as they’d assured him,
This box upon the floor.

Everything grew quiet,
And there are those who swear:
It was then that all the children
Fell into despair.
