Politics or love
Can make you blind or make you see
Make you a slave or make you free
But only one does it all

And it's giving up your life
For the ones you hate the most
It's giving them your gown
When they've taken your clothes

It's learning to admit
When you've had a hand in setting them up
In knocking them down

Love is not against the law
Love is not against the law

Are we defending life
When we just pick and choose
Lives acceptable to lose
And which ones to defend

'Cause you cannot choose your friends
But you choose your enemies
And what if they were one
One and the same

Could you find a way
To love them both the same
To give them your name
