We have slaughtered
In the garden of beauty
Digging graves instead of planting
Mercy for the crucified
A bitter justice
Begging eternity for love

We're nothing
We're everything

I am nothing
Yet I am everybody

We're nothing
And yet we are

Wisdom lights up life's road

I know you

    General CommentWow, no comments. A truly beautiful song though, and Alanis said she was truly thankful to have sang on it. The lyrics are self explanatory I guess. Wonderful track.
