    God save us every one
    Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
    For the sins of our hand
    The sins of our tongue
    The sins of our father
    The sins of our young
    “We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”
    -Robert Oppenheimer
    I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
    The blood of innocence burning in the skies
    I filled my cup with the rising of the sea
    And poured it out in an ocean of debris
    Oh
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    We held our breath when the clouds began to form
    But you were lost in the beating of the storm
    And in the end we were made to be apart
    Like separate chambers of the human heart
    No
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    It’s in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    
    I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
    The blood of innocence burning in the skies
    I am not / a pattern to be followed
    The pill that I’m on is a tough one to swallow
    I’m not a criminal / not a role model
    Not a born leader I’m a tough act to follow
    I am not / the fortune and the fame
    Nor the same person telling you to forfeit the game
    I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
    And I found out the underbelly’s sicker than it seems
    And it seems ugly / but it can get worse
    ‘Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
    ‘Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works
    Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first
    And I’m not a robot
    I’m not a monkey
    I will not dance even if the beat’s funky
    Opposite of lazy / far from a punk
    Ya’ll ought to stop talking start trying to catch up motherfucker
    And all the people say
    
    Lauryn said money change a situation
    Big said it increase the complication
    Kane said don’t step / I ain’t the one
    Chuck said that uzi weigh a motherfuckin’ ton
    And I’m just a student of the game that they taught me
    Rockin’ every stage in every place that it brought me
    I’m awfully underrated / but came here to correct it
    And so it ain’t mistaken I’ma state it for the record /
    I am / the opposite of wack / opposite of weak
    Opposite of slack / synonym of heat
    Synonym of crack / closest to a peak
    Far from a punk
    Ya’ll ought to stop talking / start trying to catch up motherfucker
    And all the people say
    
    Oh / When they come for me
    Come for me
    I’ll be gone
    You say / you’re not gonna fight / ’cause no one will fight for you
    And you think / there’s not enough love / and no one to give it to
    And you’re sure / you’ve hurt for so long / you’ve got nothing left to lose
    So you say / you’re not gonna fight / ’cause no one will fight for you
    
    You say / the weight of the world / has kept you from letting go
    And you think / compassion’s a flaw / and you’ll never let it show
    And you’re sure / you’ve hurt in a way / that no one will ever know
    But someday / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
    
    Hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
    So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
    So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go
    Just hold on / the weight of your world / will give you the strength to go

    This is not the end, this is not the beginning
    Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
    But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
    Though the words sound steady, something empty’s within ‘em
    We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
    Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
    ‘Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and fear
    Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear
    
    Waiting for the end to come / wishing I had strength to stand
    This was not what I had planned
    It’s out of my control
    Flying at the speed of light / thoughts were spinning in my head
    So many things were left unsaid
    It’s hard to let you go
    
    I know what it takes to move on
    I know how it feels to lie
    All I want to do is trade this life for something new
    Holding on to what I haven’t got
    
    Sitting in an empty room / Trying to forget the past
    This was never meant to last
    I wish it wasn’t so
    
    What was left when that fire was gone
    I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
    All caught up in the eye of the storm
    And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on
    And I don’t even know what kind of things I said
    My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so
    Picking up the pieces now where to begin
    The hardest part of ending is starting again
    I’m stuck in this bed you made
    Alone with a sinking feeling
    I saw through the words you said
    To the secrets you’ve been keeping
    It’s written upon your face
    All the lies how they cut so deeply
    You can’t get enough you take
    And take and take and never say
    
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down
    Black out
    Blood in your eye
    
    You say that it’s not your fault
    And swear that I am mistaken
    You said it’s not what it seems
    No remorse for the trust you’re breaking
    You run but then back you fall
    Suffocate in the mess you’re making
    You can’t get enough you take
    And take and take and take and take
    Fuck it
    Are you listening?
    
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ve gotta get it inside
    You push it back down / You push it back down
    No / you’ll never get it inside
    Push it back down
    Black out
    Blood in your eye
    
    Floating down / as colors fill the light
    We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite
    And floating up / you pass us in the night
    A future gazing out / a past to overwrite
    So come down / far below
    We’ve been waiting to collect the things you know
    Come down / far below
    We’ve been waiting to collect what you’ve let go
    
    Come down
    Oh
    “There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all” -Mario Savio
    
    To save face / how low can you go
    Talk a lot of game but yet you don’t know
    Static on the way / make us all say whoa
    The people up top push the people down low
    Get down
    And obey every word
    Steady getting mine if you haven’t yet heard
    Wanna take what I got
    Don’t be absurd
    Don’t fight the power
    Nobody gets hurt
    If you haven’t heard yet then I’m letting you know
    There ain’t shit we don’t run when the guns unload
    And no one make a move unless my people say so
    Got everything outta control
    Now everybody go
    
    Steel unload / final blow
    We the animals / take control
    Hear us now / clear and true
    Wretches and kings we come for you
    
    So keep pace / how slow can you go
    Talk a lot of shit and yet you don’t know
    Fire on the way / make you all say whoa
    The people up top and the people down low
    Get down
    And I’m running it like that
    The front of the attack is exactly where I’m at
    Somewhere in between
    The kick and the hi hat
    The pen and the contract
    The pitch and the contact
    So get with the combat / I’m letting ‘em know
    There ain’t shit you can say to make me back down no
    So / push the button let the whole thing blow
    Spinning everything outta control
    Now everybody go
    
    Steel unload / final blow
    We the animals / take control
    Hear us now / clear and true
    Wretches and kings we come for you
    Steel unload / fire blow
    Filthy animals / beat them low
    Skin and bone / black and blue
    No more this sun shall beat onto you
    
    From the front to the back and the side to side
    If you fear what I feel put ‘em up real high
    “I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice… A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, ‘This way of settling differences is not just.’ This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love…” -Martin Luther King Jr.
    When you were standing in the wake of devastation
    When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
    And with the cataclysm raining down
    Insides crying, “Save me now”
    You were there impossibly alone
    
    Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
    You build up hope but failure’s all you’ve known
    Remember all the sadness and frustration
    And let it go
    Let it go
    
    And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
    As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
    You felt the gravity of tempered grace
    Falling into empty space
    No one there to catch you in their arms
    
    Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
    You build up hope but failure’s all you’ve known
    Remember all the sadness and frustration
    And let it go
    Let it go
    I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    It’s in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
    So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve
    What I don’t deserve
    God bless us every one
    We’re a broken people living under loaded gun
    And it can’t be outfought
    It can’t be outdone
    It can’t be outmatched
    It can’t be outrun
    No
    
    And when I close my eyes tonight
    To symphonies of blinding light
    (God bless us every one / we’re a broken people living under loaded gun)
    Oh / like memories in cold decay
    Transmissions echoing away
    Far from the world of you and I
    Where oceans bleed into the sky
    
    God save us every one
    Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
    For the sins of our hand
    The sins of our tongue
    The sins of our father
    The sins of our young
    No
    
    And when I close my eyes tonight
    To symphonies of blinding light
    (God save us every one / will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns)
    Oh / like memories in cold decay
    Transmissions echoing away
    Far from the world of you and I
    Where oceans bleed into the sky
    
    Lift me up
    Let me go
    When you feel you’re alone
    Cut off from this cruel world
    Your instincts telling you to run
    Listen to your heart
    Those angel voices
    They’ll sing to you / they’ll be your guide back home
    
    When life leaves us blind
    Love keeps us kind
    It keeps us kind
    
    When you’ve suffered enough
    And your spirit is breaking
    You’re growing desperate from the fight
    Remember you’re loved and you always will be
    This melody will bring you right back home
    
    When life leaves us blind
    Love keeps us kind
    When life leaves us blind
    Love keeps us kind
    It keeps us kind
