Dysfunction

lyrics

Dysfunction

Semper idem...

The world in tatters
Hearts and lives shattered
The privileged ones need to act
Systemic structures
Too many souls punctured
What can I do to empower?

I’ll hold you up
Even when you haven’t the strength
We must show love
But we have to make a change
Sending out a candle to the fallen
May they rest in everlasting peace

Bombarded by all the news, all the time
We must make space to heal
I question why many can’t see the light
Should we not be on the same side?

I’ll hold you up
Even when you haven’t the strength
We must show love
But we have to make a change
Sending out a candle to the fallen
May they rest in everlasting peace

Radiate the light of the diamonds
Mediate a shift in the design
Ingratiate the ones with all the power
From within, the change must be made

I’ll hold you up
Even when you haven’t the strength
We must show love
But we have to make a change
Sending out a candle to the fallen
May they rest in everlasting peace
