lyrics

Put down the newsprint pages
They have nothing good to say
The world you loved is dying
Prepare your speeches for the wake

Awake to find another human dead with lifted hands
"Let's order a coffin."
It's dangerous to walk out your front door
When you don't look like you belong
"Try harder to fit in."

Keep your head down and hide your face
When "all made in God's image"
Means "all of those who look the same"
Pledge your allegiance like it's a prayer
What does it mean to love a country
But refuse to love the ones who live there?

Read the Bible to your daughter
Sing the hymnal to your son
Teach them to hide the ways they're different
Teach them the narrowness of love

Awake to find a vacant house, your neighbors disappeared
"They didn't belong here."
When those who speak a different tongue
Or use a different name for God are finally gone
Whose turn will it be then?

Keep your head down and hide your face
When "all made in God's image"
Means "all of those who look the same"
Pledge your allegiance like it's a prayer
What does it mean to love a country
But refuse to love the ones who live there?

"My hands are in the sky.
Please do not shoot, don't end my life.
I cannot breathe again.
Remember what you promised."

Keep your head down and hide your face
When "all made in God's image"
Means "all of those who look the same"
Pledge your allegiance like it's a prayer
What does it mean to love a country
But refuse to love the ones who live there?
