They Stood Up for Love
Naked lovers feel the blood beneath their veins
Electric nerves communicate
With tiny explosions through our brains
Who is this energy that never left or came?
Give rise to passion the only glory
Of this human story

I'd give my heart and soul to the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Looking back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say, everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in every time lord in everyplace
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate
In spite of the hate

Who put the flower in the barrel of that gun?
Who lit the candle that started the fire,
Burnt down the fortress, the throne?
Who could house all the refugees in a single shack
Or a lonely bungalow?
Who lives in a different dimension, free from the
Struggles we know?

I'd give my heart and soul to the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Looking back to our birth, forward to our demise
Even scientists say, everything is just light
Not created, destroyed but eternally bright
Masters in every time lord in everyplace
Those who stood up for love down in spite of the hate
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
They live in the light

We made it to the moon
But we can't make it home
Waitin' on some rescue to never come
Made it to the moon
But we can't make it home
Maybe home is where the heart is given up
To the one
To the one

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Lookin' back to our birth, forward to our demise
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
They live, they

They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love
They stood up for love
Stood up for love
Stood up for love

We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Masters in every time
We spend all of our lives goin' out of our minds
Stood up for love
