We saw Angeles rise
From the demons depths
we prayed for peace
With our bowed heads

But we fought for war
Its all we knew
For this place never let us
Truly choose

Even when the blaze
Would  subsided
We’d never let it show
That still there’s weakness- that lies

Behind the eyes
Within our skin
In our love
and for our kin

Not just iron
Of the coldest night
Not just war
In our time

Or tolerance
We beg for more
While giving less
Our bones grow sore

This I
And this is you
Born in a place
Where there’s no right to choose

Every ones put
behind the lines
Razed covered in bruises
If you call out the lies

If you choose not to believe
In this separation birthright
If you look to your blood
And speak of different life
