All that is beautiful
Will not be beautiful to me
Unless it's perfect.
Outside of these walls is an awful place
As far as I can tell

We are not the enemy, we are not the enemy inside.

We were victims of a constant loss,
We were not the enemy.

I am afraid
That opinions are contagious.
I am afraid...
That my plans will all lose their place.
We are not the enemy.

We could hold our breath forever
Or maybe for a while...
The best will surely come.
Until then we'll feel nothing,
Until then we'll feel nothing at all.

All that is beautiful
Will not be beautiful to me
Unless it's perfect.
All that is beautiful
Will not be beautiful to me.
In all harmony, in all of our discord,
Can we really know all that is pure.

We are not the enemy, we are not the enemy,
We are not the enemy.

    General CommentThe truth is glorious, but will always hurt. We are not perfect, nor are we meant to be though... so we must try to please Him anyway, and help this world..

    General CommentI think this song touches on how sheltered the church is. Perhaps suggesting that people's views of if being a bit self-centred and not grounded in reality might be a little bit true.

    Maybe we think too much about heaven, and thus can't see the beauty in the world around us. Maybe we're scared to step into the real world, because the walls of our church are so safe. Maybe we are forced into opinions a bit. I don't know. But I think this is a wicked song that brings some up some very important and challenging observations.
