lyrics

This is how it comes apart
These broken pieces of my aching heart
This isolation making me insane
So all I see in the world is pain

Another black man shot down by law
Where the Liberty Bell was cracked long ago
They cry for justice, take to the streets
To wake us up from the American Dream

We need change
We need to look at who we are
We need to name all the sins of our fathers
Of our mothers and brothers, of our friends and our lovers
And see that this is how it comes apart

We think we know what the world needs best
Clutch our pearls tightly to our chests
How would it feel if we just let go
And admitted to ourselves that we really don't know

We live on stolen land
Our cities are open sores
And yet it all is planned
To keep us always wanting more and more and more and more

We need change
We need to look at what we've done
We need to name all the sins of our fathers
Of our mother and brothers, of our friends and our lovers
And see how far apart we've all become

I am trying to find a way to keep it together
Everything feels shaky in this earthquake weather
Asked a tree what it thought about the mess we're in
It said, "I die in the Fall and in the Spring I come alive again."

We need change
We need to write a brand new song
We need to name all the strengths of our fathers
Of our mothers and brothers, of our friends and our lovers
And see a world where we can all belong
