lyrics

All of the people are falling, it's hard to believe in a freedom that comes from a nation to beat out the treason I've nursed since my weaning. And all I've found since is: I can't keep up with the times, messing up love with my crimes. Bombs aren't the only distraction. Stand back and see my reaction. I see them fall from the sky every time I spit a lie. Tell me a way to combat them, tell me it's not with compassion. I don't fear war cause I know my knees are failing. I can't reason why I fight to keep from kneeling. Sometimes a battle with shackles is supernatural, when I can't feel them. I can't keep up with the times, messing up love with my crimes. Bombs aren't the only distraction. Stand back and see my reaction. I see them fall from the sky every time I spit a lie. Tell me a way to combat them, tell me it's not with compassion. I'm not the only one makin’ babies just to watch them crawl. I'm not the only one standing scorned by the weight of the fall. I’m not the only one splitting atoms for my own excuse. I’m not the only one makin’ trouble the way that I do. (Um freedom, um reason, dumb freedom, dumb reason...)
