Shadows (feat. Frank Lasalona)

lyrics

this whole world is out of order
we've built a wall up
its been exhausting
brick and mortar
built in disorder
thickened sensation of pessimism
blissed in frustration
running the gamut,
insidious nations
thinning the herd
urban evacuations
ignorant Christians conflicting their word
flag burners taking their turn
fact check the bad actors
watch the hills as they burn
sitting back on their laurels
making payments to florists
claiming flames of unsureness
ignites the hate in our morals
riddle populations with misinformation
emerging like the sun in the morning
or the tide as a warning
find it alarming
or be surprised that the darkness is charming
i'm burnt

rising up like the sun in the morning
as the light does shine in the dawning
shadows that once held on to you a go running
with this hear we go beat them down
the drum does sound like a calling
as the word come shout out the warning
shadows they go scatter fe true see the reason
with this heart we go beat them down

We stand in astonishment
because we don’t mix morality and politics
It’s more about a dollar’s wish
unmoved by testimony about corruption
The takeaway from murders
yesterday, today, tomorrow
unjustly so dismissive
so against tradition
oppressors oppressing sorrow
is hatred sold to children
but there's light shining through
the cloud of that betrayal
the loosening of the noose
This portrayal of the truth is expiring
you can deny it but there’s proof
You’re on an island
This awakening it ain't a riot
get the crust up off your eyelids
and don’t be so complicit with your silence
It’s simple
its not a rumor that they matter
Its the fear of the all of the shackles that were shattered
lucky the goal isn’t revenge
on this side of the fence
we’ve been trying to be friends
dummy
regardless of your sins

rising up like the sun in the morning
as the light does shine in the dawning
shadows that once held on to you a go running
with this hear we go beat them down
the drum does sound like a calling
as the word come shout out the warning
shadows they go scatter fe true see the reason
with this heart we go beat them down
with this heart we go beat them down
