lyrics

It takes courage to love me
It takes courage to care
It takes courage to confront
Your weaknesses you share

The victim of the flames
I'm speakin' as a potential victim
The burning of the witch
The nigger, the jew,
and the faggot too

The blood-stained self
The violence on our TV
Is far more dangerous than
pornography

How much longer could she take
The beatings and the rape
As much truth as one can bear
The evils in the world
Then a little more
Which has panic at the root

We all live in a world
Where dreams betray and are betrayed
Where love dies, and innocence must die

The awful question of wether or not
all our dreams have failed
How we managed to become
what we have
This inexpressible pain
So desperate so empty
What are we to do about it?

This present chaos
The terror and the bombings
Holding our breath underwater
And this song's an act of love
