Standing with bare backs against
Structures built strongly of good faith, add lies
Subtract some care
Obligation becomes optional and they collapse
It's all that we thought and there’s nothing here

Stand up and listen to the sounds
The bullets scream, the children drop
In silence face-first to the ground

There’s no one to care
No one to see an end
Jet planes explode midair
And our dreams fill the cabin

Not fast enough to adapt to all the changes
Still not strong enough to accept the status quo
The salted knife is inside turning slow
But this is all that we know

Cut a branch off my family tree
It made sense to me until now

Soon we'’ll try, because it’s worth a try
And then we’ll take what was ours to begin with
Right now it’s hard to breathe but we’ll survive

Forget the third world, forget disease
Reveal scars, stab me with a sematar
Look around normal faces hide worse problems in our backyard
Don’'t hide the scars

Stand up and listen to the sounds
Bullets screaming, children dropping
No one watching as they nail the ground
