lyrics

in this dizzy time there seems to be
no real sense of time
no sense of when our sentence is complete
and while we're safe at home
are we safe from those who lead?

one man holds all the power and every drop of greed
demanding adoration
he's risen from our dreams
of a spiteful god who shows us mercy
only when we get on our knees

so when the doors have opened
and we step out to the street
will you build a raging fire or just go back to sleep?
I beg we take the darkness and the wrongs that we have seen
to fashion a new normal
let us not repeat

in this quiet time they seem to be
drawing thicker lines
and lining all their pockets with our needs
they'll trade our blood and bones
for a bit of property

so when the doors have opened
and we step out to the street
will you build a raging fire or wear a guise of peace?
I beg we take the darkness and the wrongs that we have seen
to fashion a new normal
let us not repeat
