Above Fear


I feel, but I know Drift in life but in control I seek, in careful steps Emotions running wild, but left check I touch when I can't see And taste the air each time I breath I trust but in the past The patterns of a life, Or a die that's cast Certain but we don't know Hopeless yet possible One life in poetry, the other pattern, A sleeping wonder unfolds
Exonerate in metaphors Behind the book, beyond the visage A painted love hiding war A caustic reach false redemption Keep them lost, keep them stupid Bind them to poverty Choking on a whitest tide, Mouths of our humanity Swinging wild As the light goes fucking out Balled fist, no going down I promise, I will resist Still shaken, still fuckin pissed
Golden Bends 01:51
We dwell too deeply on a past That was painted from a dream Born in a spoon, fed to you mouths A privilege we've never seen You took that leap step back again This golden rule doesn't bend So quick to speak and cast a fault For those that hunger and condemned You'll never learn-- how to love Caught between the us and them You took that leap step back again This golden rule, it doesn't bend
Ann(e) 02:25
Hateful lies, and vicious slurs Bathroom laws, a heart deferred A bible belt, across the back A shooting spree, a pulse goes slack And here we go again, Another peg with hole Another gift turned pariah And here we failed again, another chance to all Stand up for a greater love to call our own A right to work, a right to be A right to build a family A war against, justified By the blindest piety This world is full of struggle, A deafening call to arms A chime that shakes us all It's time... to hit back, And move the needle on We will no be same Step out of your shadow
They cast out the light in turn they fear a cold release of self, held dear A currency well spent in hate a colder world to legislate Slash the forest ink the seas sleeping giants killed in their sleep Ancient lands so pocked with steel Mountains blue ground to Meal And in your heart, that you feel, It shall pass A working class for a lucky few We'll sell their schools and children too We'll take their homes and keep them sick And when they rise we've got our sticks
They say that love is blind, then why are the hypocrites Are always drawing lines, in which they only fit It never seems to me, they're who they want to be But so indoctrinated, taught have they are the hated This world is just so damn hard, I see you This world won't tear us all apart cos I'll find you And when a child is gone, struggling in their skin Just could not carry on, no one would let them in Another generation learns to live in fear A rift that cuts us all, a warning rings so clear Their are so grating, my hope can't keep fading My heart it keeps breaking in two My hands they are shaking, my arms they are shaking My Voice it is shaking for you
