lyrics

VERSE 1
My heart does not lie
Even when you shine your red light
It's my conviction
Reason never made me whole
Reason never broke the mould
It's our condition
I know who I am
The shadow of a broken man
Eternity is written on my heart
Can't take this away
Doesn't matter the hate you spray
I chewed over your words and found them wanting

CHORUS
We All suffer beneath the same sky
Unified
We All suffer for a better day
Another day we pay

VERSE 2
Hope does not rely
On a star in a distant sky
It changes our intentions
Fear is a weight unsound
you know it's gonna take you down
Freedom is not my invention
