Calling from the rooftop
I'm singing your name
All that's been blown apart
Has been washed away
When you were out there fighting
Going up against the tide

want you to know
That it still matters to me
You made your vibrations
Without a gun in your hand
To a world that's adding darkness
A night devoid of stars
Descending spiral begets the very thing that
It seeks to destroy

You can kill a liar but you can never kill the lie
I reject your solutions
I reject your violence
And through our resolve
You will see your injustice
And through our persistence
You will be called to conscious

I reject your solutions
I reject your violence
And we're not afraid

If you make us bleed
Every drop of our blood
Will say "I love you
I forgive you
I love you
I defy you"
