Dead Letter Circus – The Lie We Live lyrics
There is more to what you see
You're vulnerable to hate because it's easier than love
And you are fed that you are in danger

Shouted from a screen, unfolding from a page
You react and follow blind
Stand up and take your place now

Peace, love, truth, trust, gift, hope, faith, cross won't shape us now
Fear, loss, shame, blood, pain, cost- we serve you now

We are pawns to our masters laughing above us
Knowing that we won't even notice the game
All eyes on the ones they've chosen to blind us
Viewed from below in the reflection they made

The problem will be made for the solution to be sold
To your face, before your eyes
Tolerance is now the new danger

Shouting at the page, pointing at the screen
We react and follow blind
Stand up and take our place now

One stone cast to the heart of the cancer above us, thrown with our spite, will tear the king from the throne
We were taught to believe we're born without power, told who will shine as we are sold who to blame

We are fools to them
Can't anybody see what's happening?

We are pawns to our masters, holding the power
Knowing that won't see their faces through
