I’ve been tearing down these walls I’ve seen it all I’ve seen it all We wear our sins On the back of angels We wear regret In our skin Give it weight Sink it in Is this what you wanted? Trading love for violence They stand here wanting Something more than promises The destruction that is to come The collection of daughters and sons Casting out all the idols we made Fools teaching fools The blind lead the blind And all of this is in our hands This life without and death within The suffering of an aged nation It shakes the ground and it calls our name It calls our name It calls our name Ransoming the rest We give our lives to save We give our lives to save What is this? The son of man betrayed by a kiss So is this our inheritance? Some broken bones, some blood-stained hands I count the cost of this violence It’s evident that we will see this end This is the life we lead You gave us a love everlasting, everlasting There is a strength in us To take back everything we once held dear To rise and rise again and wash the blood from our hands We’ll take it back The worth of this world Wake up your saints and open your eyes This is the life we lead (this is our life) This is the love we keep (this is our love) This is the life we lead (that we lead) This is the love we keep (love we keep) Don’t you dare turn your back on this? Don’t you dare turn your back on this? [[Category:Letter To Exiles]]
