This empire of silence sways in the wind
Leaves for the winter, won't you shelter me?
Look in the mirror, tell me what you see
A cause for the cancer or a remedy?

Every rung beneath my feet
The weight will bare on shoulders build to lean
The strength inside a seed (We're all alone)
If I learn from our deceits
Let the water guide us to the sea
For all our wounds will heal (We're all alone)

We're building walls where there should have been bridges
Borders in the land that we roam
We pray for war like it's a fucking religion
When greed is all we know, greed is all we know

Greed is all we know

Conditioned innocent with love's intention
Confused together, realize we're all the same
(We're all the same)

This empire of silence sways in the wind
Leaves for the winter, won't you shelter me?
Look in the mirror, tell me what you see
A cause for the cancer or a remedy?

Pull out the knife that you've earned

This world's a loss to an age of a self-loving race
With no desire to change
Emergency positions please
Reprieve humanity

We're building walls where there should have been bridges
Borders in the land that we roam
We pray for war like it's a fucking religion
When greed is all we know

We're building walls where there should have been bridges
Borders in the land that we roam
We pray for war like it's a fucking religion
When greed is all we know, greed is all we know

We won't give up on the truth
We won't give in to their rules
We're not afraid of a world corrupted
We won't give up on you
