lyrics

The truth is rolled up in the hollows of our bones
We are the same
The truth is printed inside out beneath our skin
Spelled out in veins

So when they come to take you I will take your place
So when they come to take you I will take your place

Of course I am afraid, but fear will never be my name
Our lives are wasted if all we build are barricades
If we destroy ourselves to make ourselves feel safe
Our love is worthless if love has driven us to hate

Tell me a story where the heroes turned their guns
On unarmed kids
Show me where Jesus said that money matters more
Than caring for the sick

As long as those we kill are someone else's kin
As long as those we kill are someone else's kin

Of course I am afraid, but fear will never be my name
Our lives are wasted if all we build are barricades
If we destroy ourselves to make ourselves feel safe
Our love is worthless if love has driven us to hate

We will tear a father from his family
Grind up the destitute in our machinery
Let the strangers die outside our boundaries
In the name of some imagined safety

Of course I am afraid, but fear will never be my name
Our lives are wasted if all we build are barricades
If we destroy ourselves to make ourselves feel safe
Our love is worthless if love has driven us to hate
