I don't know what to do
But stare into space
Wish I could shut my eyes
I used to sleep at night
I used to feel safe
And now I'm terrified

So take away this darkness in the air
It's like black flames are everywhere
Someone say there's hope on the way

Oh can you shake it down on the sea and rain down the water
Make it count can't you see our hearts are breaking harder
Rain down, rain down the water
Rain down, rain down the water
Have you heard us screaming out?
We're burning the harbor

We took a holy place
We taught it violence
And called it efficiency
We've seen the hell it creates
But we've chosen silence
And kept it viciously

So take away this darkness in the air
It's like black flames are everywhere
Someone say there's hope on the way

Oh can you shake it down on the sea and rain down the water
Make it count can't you see our hearts are breaking harder
Rain down, rain down the water
Rain down, rain down the water
Have you heard us screaming out?
We're burning the harbor

Maybe we need a second chance
Maybe it's out of our hands
Maybe it's time we take a stand

Oh can you shake it down on the sea and rain down the water
Make it count can't you see our hearts are breaking harder
Rain down, rain down the water
Rain down, rain down the water
Have you heard us screaming out?

Oh can you shake it down on the sea and rain down the water
Make it count can't you see our hearts are breaking harder
Rain down, rain down the water
Rain down, rain down the water
Have you heard us screaming out?
We're burning the harbor

You know we're burning the harbor
