lyrics

The fire it burns, the world it does turn
The way it always has
And mothers still cry when fathers they die
Oh no, it don't change

My love for you will always be the same
The way I feel about you still remains

The self-righteous fight over someone else's life
And they way they choose to love
The violence it grows and the world it does know
Just where it's coming from

And everyone believes they're in the know
That cell between our ears won't let us go

'Cause everyone's a fake
Don't think before they say
"The difference is I'm right and you are wrong"
I know that you believe
But your truth is not for me
The battle rages on but no one's home

We take all we can from the sea and the land
Without a thought of consequence
The forests disappear, still we refuse to hear
Hear the cries of the earth

And everything we got we don't deserve
I think we overestimate our worth

'Cause everyone's a fake
Don't think before they say
"The difference is I'm right and you are wrong"
I know that you believe
But your truth is not for me
The battle rages on but no one's home

Someday we'll see that it doesn't have to be
The way it always has
