We search for peace to flood the streets Flicker of light to drive out the night Abundance of love to dissolve disgust But I’m still searching for what that looks like for us

Love, it will not cease Even when breath no longer passes through our teeth Love, like the clouds over our heads Showering droughts and nurturing what’s left for dead

Yet the only light that I can see The burning eyes from this monster marching the streets Picket signs for scales, discourse for teeth

We are fighting fire with fire And leaving devastation in our wake Overcoming darkness with twilight And the night tides immerse us in their waves We are waging wrath against hatred And we battle each war after war

Our nation drowning in it’s own tears A body with a virus but we ignore the cure How is it that we are too ignorant to know That this hate that we cling to, it will get us nowhere And still we rise against our very own brother

Lighting candles, we’re burning bridges Breaking bread, we’re breaking skin Take this cup, we’re spilling blood This one body has separated

Gluttony, debauchery, outside these walls torsos empty Hypocrites, rash judgments Are we the salt, are we sulfur Where is the compassion, from pulpits that we preach We cannot abide by these patterns anymore

So retract your claws, let’s put anguish to rest Because I swear we’re called for something more Oh generation, no house can stand divided It’s time that we take on a new lead of love

We are the letters not written by pen or ink But transcribed by the spirit of the I Am

We search for peace to flood the streets Flicker of light to drive out the night Abundance of love to dissolve disgust And all of this has been written on our hearts since day one Live by the love that is written on your hearts
