lyrics

Stop no sudden movements is a common greeting here
Don’t turn around to quickly
And it’s not even a guarantee and the shot may be all you hear
The violence has me sickly

Take a way rights and you take away lives.

Its just a clumsy coup and were all too slow to stop it
Don’t dare call it a police state
It’s really sanctioned genocide, you’re a number in the pits
And the rest of us are useless as we spectate

The casualties build a wall—the euphemism's getting tall

There’s no death now, only perpetrators
there’s no death now, only wrong place wrong time
There’s no death now, only questions later
and if you survive they’ll give you time

They have no respect for life or the effort that it takes, they take it away with no reasonable cause
Some broken form of justice they’ve contrived and bastardized that's built on centuries of flaws

We're all just humans trying to make our way
Seems like good will and compassion went holiday
We're taught to distrust difference and chaos
But there is beauty there that we’ve lost.

There’s no death now, only perpetrators
there’s no death now, only wrong place wrong time
There’s no death now, only questions later
and if you survive they’ll give you time
