Bystander

lyrics

News comes at us from the morning cloud
A grainy moving image in the crowd
Quietly a nation holds their pain
And a girl is missing once again

Did you break? Did you fall?
Did you do…….Nothing at all?

Man wraps himself in a flag
Hating things he never had
They’re starting fires once again
Burning in another’s name

Did you break? Did you fall?
Did you do…….Nothing at all?

Black crow tell me who’s to blame
Was it in the father’s name?
Old as time, original as sin
Open up, let love in

Did you break? Did you fall?
Did you do…….Nothing at all?
