lyrics

We were all sleeping so sound
A silence willful and profound
Exalted our straw men and gods
Armed our own firing squads

A delusion so completely inane
So absurdly insane
A tonic to dilute the pain
To pacify and explain

That's why we're divided
That’s why we're complacent and so well contained
That’s why senseless violence lies
In the fiction we struggle to feign
And why nothing will change

We were all sleeping so sound
Until the bombs started hitting the ground
Felt the first tinges of shame
When we could pronounce all the names

Categorize and compartmentalize
We tend to dehumanize
Separate all the “we”s from the “they”s
Until we feel safe

That's how we’ve come this far
And they say that old habits die hard
That’s why we can't shed the shame
The carnage is lustfully craved
And nothing will change

While my heart is broken
And I feel so hopeless
It’s just for a moment
