The Antidote

This song is by Memphis May Fire and appears on the album This Light I Hold (2016).

Original video
Hate plagues the world and kills relationship
Before it ever could start
Imperfect creatures that are insecure
So we hide behind our broken hearts

Keep distance from those who need us
'Cause we won't admit that we need them too
Afraid to give ourselves to someone else
Because we're scared of what we might lose

Everyone wants to be understood
So why don't we just listen more
And get off our pedestals

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power, I believe it now
Love is the antidote, yeah, I believe it now
Our one and only hope to turn the world around

You become the cancer when you start to think
You've got it all figured out
So why would we believe that our opinions would be
Enough to show the world what love's about?

Stop and think before you speak

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power, I believe it now
Love is the antidote, yeah, I believe it now
Our one and only hope to turn the world around

The words you speak can set a broken world free
The power lies in who we choose to be

Stop trying to solve the problems
That you don't understand
Maybe if we learned to show compassion
The world wouldn't think we had guns in our hands

Called to love, called to lead
Have we forgotten who we're called to be?
Build them up, don't break them down
The way we love can turn the world around
Turn the world around

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power, I believe it now
Love is the antidote, yeah, I believe it now
Our one and only hope to turn the world around

Stop and think before you speak
