Do you pray?
Do you fall
On your knees when everything goes wrong?
Go back to the word
In the good book you heard
That will save you a place somewhere.

Do you sing
From your soul
When you feel that calm before the storm?
Bleed out your throat
Or sound just like a bird
When she wakes from the light of first morne.

Brother don't doubt everything, we don't even have that power.
Sister don't heed the battles we breed, upon those waking hours.

I wanna dance like nobody's watching, and sing like nobody cares.
Climb to the top of those mountains we see, to find peace, and die up there.

Do you work?
Do you slave?
Breaking your back every day
Whether for food, or whether for pay
Or just for your baby's sake?

Do you die?
Belly up and cry
When you feel like there's nothing worth trying
Down on your luck
And hopeless for fate
Those tables will turn one day.

Brother don't doubt everything, we don't even have that power.
Sister don't heed the battles we breed, upon those waking hours.

I wanna dance like nobody's watching, and sing like nobody cares.
Climb to the top of those mountains we see, to find peace, and die up there.
