Only time will tell
Or tell us nothing
Or maybe we already know

So many days to fill
Trying to feel something
More than a slow ebb and flow

So drag me out into the street
If you hear the news coming
Now mothers and fathers teach their children
It doesn’t matter if blood’s thicker than water
If it’s on your hands

So let’s raise our glasses
For those once among us
For those who fought away fear

Who stepped into the darkness
Into the shadows
Never to reappear

If you call on me
You know I’ll come running
Through the fire across the field
Down by the water where we played as children
When heaven was over the hill

The truth may only hurt if it comes
And tells us
That the heroes were really the ones
Who walked away
