Our brothers waged a lonely fight, while the bottom reaches out
Our leaders in the hall tonight try to talk this country down
Light up the land that crowned you
Take up the call around you
We're all under the microscope searching for the fire
We've surrendered a kind of hope searching for the fire

Who will see the crime in every face?
Who will face the fire then turn away
Who has spoken out,stand or be put down
Who will face the wise, and watch the system die

Someone set the hills alight with a blinding midnight fire
A history worth of a nation's crime, lie atop this funeral pyre
See how the world has found you
Hiding from what surrounds you
We're all under the microscope searching for the fire
We surrendered a kind of hope searching for the fire

Who will see the crime in every face? (are we coming undone?)
Who will face the fire then turn away? (are we coming undone?)
Who has spoken out, stand or be put down
Who will face the wise, then watch the system die...
