Amy Fear - Lyrics:

 

Bring out your dead - We will not forget - My beautiful friend
Bring out your dead - This spitefulness - I can't comprehend
Bring out your dead - We love you no less - This is not the end

You didn't fear the future
You were innocent and strong
I'll never forget your kindness
In defiance of the firing squad

Bring out your dead - We will not forget - My beautiful friend
Bring out your dead - This spitefulness - I can't comprehend
Bring out your dead - We love you no less - This is not the end

You didn't become vengeful
Even though they tore you down
Your thirst to learn was an inspiration
Their hate can't touch you now

How can I tell you in simple words
Just how much losing you hurts
But bombs can't destroy empathy
Bullets can't silence history

Share these moments before they pass
Love like the sun shines through stained glass
Your memory is part of me
Forever in my hopes and dreams

How can I tell you in simple words
Just how much your love was worth
Hate only makes us weak and cold
Fear diminishes the soul

Share these moments before they pass
Love like the sun shines through stained glass
Your memory is part of me
Forever in my hopes and dreams

When we set fire to your limousine, we were just keeping the peace
We read the books you didn't want us to read, we were just keeping the peace
When we downed tools and planted the seeds, we were just keeping the peace
When we blew kisses at the riot police, we were just keeping the peace
We laughed out loud at your twitter feed, we were just keeping the peace
We saw through your pathetic pageantry

We are the crowds you can't dumb down
We are the sound you can't drown out

When we broke the bias of your binary, we were just keeping the peace
We called refugees our friends and family, we were just keeping the peace
When we danced all night in the city streets, we were just keeping the peace
We all chanted 'fuck queen and country'

We are the crowds you can't dumb down
We are the sound you can't drown out

Put your fist in the air
Stand silent in defiance
Put your fist in the air
Keep the peace

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Heart is racing, hands are tracing
The staircase of your spine
If I'm not mistaken, you're half awake and
Staring out into the starless night
When I touch you, when I want to
Why does it feel like a crime?

I watched you fall apart like a broken doll
Could it be that what we need is already lost?
You said I did too much too soon and then turned cold
Could it be that what we need is to just let go?

Aching muscles, I'm in trouble
You forgive but can't forget
It seems that sex and drugs, can only help so much
With filling up this emptiness
What use are hollow words, they die like tiny birds
You pull away and start getting dressed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Respect is overdue
Here in this waiting room
The ghosts of those forever denied
Are life-like but not alive

Only you can judge you
Here in this waiting room
The ghosts of mothers, sisters and wives
Warm themselves by the fire

Are you holding in the feeling?
I'll help you shatter that glass ceiling
Are you searching for a voice?
That you can raise above the noise

History is conceited and cruel
Here in this waiting room
The ghosts that the years have inscribed
Upon the skin of each passer-by

But the future is starting to bloom
Here in this waiting room
The ghosts sing protest songs all night
Laughing and drinking until dawn's early light

Are you holding in the feeling?
I'll help you shatter that glass ceiling
Are you searching for a voice?
That you can raise above the noise

Oh it's still not too late
But why wait? Why wait?
But why wait? Why wait?

I'm right behind you all the way
So why wait? Why wait? It's your time
So why wait? Why wait? It's your time 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Every day the spitefulness escalates
And hope for the future is diminished
Every day we're besieged by invertebrates
Bigots, braggarts and misogynists

And for expressing empathy
I'm up against the wall
And for defying the orthodoxy
I'm up against the wall

Every day the righteous marching on
While dissidents are hunted down
Every day another piece of your heart is lost
Until you're totally hollowed out

And for believing that love sets us free
I'm up against the wall
And for welcoming all refugees
I'm up against the wall

Your collective contempt for culture and intellect
Fuels a race to the lowest ebb of emptiness
We're prepared to fight for our dignity
Brothers, sisters sing along with me . . .

Build your fucking wall - we're gonna tear it down
Build your fucking wall - we're gonna tear it down
Build your fucking wall - we're gonna tear it down
Build your fucking wall - we're gonna tear it down

I'm calling you out on your threats
I'm up against the wall
I'm raising my voice in protest
I'm up against the wall
