We who feel lava in our eyes and hearts
Find it hard not to shake or scream

The cool that we have learned melts quickly,
Receding into the false air that kills us to breathe

In lost languages of love,
With eyes dim and souls open,
We pray freedom and truth

Hear my cry oh lord - for America sins
as if she knows not what she does

Send us word in the trees and the birds
For they stand toughest to the wind
and touch closest to the sky
Let us find strength in the charge of our blood and the chill of our skin

We stand on broken glass with bloody feet
Ready to run
with hot hearts of courage, tired of confusion

Give our thoughts wings,
Wrap us tight in rings of resistance -

and let us fly
