something happening in my hometown
folks are building up things they used to have torn down
my granddad used to say your neighbour
should have a key to your front door
so i come now that i'm a man
this ain't the sort of place he laid his life down for

well who are you and where do you come from
is it dark at night there and sometimes in the day do you miss the sun
do you feel it's easier to choke
like breathing's just a trick to make you feel a part of something
like everything's a trick to make you feel a part of something

to fill your head, hit your heart
hear yourself scream
still alive but set up to die
for and against the same thing

the wind it blows--the oceans roll
the world waits sleeping inside this cave: ancient eyes
for and against the same thing

the way you move against my skin gets me baby
the way we were is the way we are
for and against the same thing

there's something happening in my hometown
folks are hearing voices but they never make no sound
do you feel like it's easier to choke
like breathing's just a trick to make you feel a part of
being knocked down set back up and knocked down again

knocked down set back up and knocked down again

to fill your head, hit your heart
hear yourself scream
still alive but set up to die
for and against the same thing

the wind it blows--the oceans roll
the world waits sleeping inside this cave: ancient eyes
for and against the same thing

the way you move against my skin gets me baby
the way we were is the way we are
for and against the same thing

the way we were is the way we are
for and against the same thing

yeah, the way we were is the way we are
for and against the same thing
