lyrics

throw your cares into the sea
throw your fears into me
throw your weight to your feet
throw the earths to the meeks
throw your love to your friends
throw your start to the end
throw your doubt to the night
throw your mouth to the might
throw your strength to your fate
throw your check to the mate
throw your black to the light
throw your force to the fight
throw your wisdom to the weak
throw your goals to the peaks
throw your heart off your sleeve
throw your blood off your knees

where is your will to live
where is your will to love
cross out the pain
cross out the sign
this is the moment
we all escape

we're still here
still loud as the young

still bright as the sun
an army of one

still perfectly broken
still nervously spoken

still damaged & frantic
still a hopeful romantic

still poetic as the moon
still five in the afternoon

still shaping our heads
still loving the dead

still lamenting our lives
still sharpening our knives

still painting our face
still feeling displaced

still erratic as our breath
still accepting all of our deaths

still stealing your hearts
still bleeding our art

where is your will to live
where is your will to love
cross out the pain
cross out the sign
this is the moment
we all escape
we all escape

freedom
freedom
take my hand
take my hand
follow me home
follow me home

freedom
freedom
take my hand
take my hand
follow me home
follow me home
follow me home
follow me home
