My son you're old now, you've left your mark upon this land
You've pushed them hard because you can
Look to your children, listen for words that we won't speak
For they don't share in our disease

We made our vows, we played it wrong
Is there a sound that it makes
Cos I could hear our hearts break
We trusted fe, then watched them fall
We'll close our eyes then we fly into the wide-open arms of the lie

For some it's so clear, they know the people at their feet
Will trust the mouths who talk so sweet
We all have eyes son, to see the blood upon our hands
We couldn't help but understand

We made our vows, we played it wrong
Is there a sound that it makes
Cos I could hear our hearts break
We trusted few, then watched them fall
We'll close our eyes then we fly into the wide-open arms of the lie

They never told us why
There's still people missing in our minds
Our lives are fading things, hey brother are you out there?
My hope's alive within, hey brother are you out there?
