  • The lion isn't sacred when not sleeping near the lamb
    It is evil when it eats unless it's feeding from the damned
    All the children painted diagrams of god upon their hands
    Hoping somewhere on this shaking earth they could find a place to stand

    It's a tyrant to the foreigners who've never seen the land
    They feel safer than a statue when they've got a spear in hand
    It is pregnant with the fury that the pain in life demands
    Yes, it's fear - But it's a fear that understands

    And what's left is a heartbeat, speaking;
    "hands off your fate, child, you'll bury yourself in mistakes."
    Like a dream that i had of lost faith it fades away but still thunders onward
    Every pulse was a hand with its palm up
    Fed with bodies and bread soaked in blood
    Somewhere, someday, it'll leave but tell me, someone
    Where does it go?

    What tied our hands tight to the train tracks, then backed off slowly?
    What does the heart say? "See the reverse. there's an answer there."

    I am the moth-drenched love of dead mules
    As stable as sand in a windstorm. and i shake like a spider in the rain
    When you say;
    "My, my, the ways I've changed since then - the ways I've changed."
    And all i ever say is;
    "I'm..."

    And it hits like a brick to the back of your head. Like, goodbye, five times
    One for each finger
    And you say;
    "My, my, the ways I've changed since then--the ways I've changed."
    And all i ever say is
    "i'm tired."

    We turned our water into whining, shouting, "let us be like Christ."
    But then the whining turned to wonder, and the wonder turned to ice
    Once, we were graceful steeples, hands held upward and eyes wide in suspense
    Now, we are tangled like intruders in the wires of the fence

    For a fence is built to protect what lies inside of it
    Do you still feel sick? because i do
