One came up to me making demands
One came up to me
One came up to me dressed in blue
One came up to me
One came up to me to shake my hand
One came up to me
One came up to me with a gun in my back
One came up to me
One came up to me wearing a flag
One came up to me
One came up to me with blood on his hands
One came up to me
One came up to me with hand on heart
One came up to me
One came up to me peddling lies
One came up to me

Grandfather was a servant, my father was a slave
And I am an object to manipulate
Out across the crowd, all the faces bowed
I feel the shackle tighten as I turn away

I was hungry and you took from me
I was trampled underneath your feet
We are struggle
We are strain
We are the sun behind the rain
And when you're gone, we will remain

One came up to me wearing a mask
One came up to me in a cloud of gas
One came up to me offering peace
One came up to me and let slip the leash
One came up to me in my defense
One came up to me at my expense
One came up to me with callow eyes
One came up to me defending a crime

Grandfather was a servant, my father was a slave
And I am an object to manipulate
Out across the crowd, all the faces bowed
I feel the shackle slipping as I turn away

I was hungry and you took from me
I was trampled underneath your feet
We are struggle
We are strain
We are the sun behind the rain
And when you're gone, we will remain

I was hungry and you took from me
I was trampled underneath your feet
I am struggle
I am strain
I am the sun behind the rain
And when you're gone, I will remain

I am struggle
I am strain
