Memphis May Fire – The Antidote lyrics
Hate plagues the world and kills relationship
Before it ever could start
Imperfect creatures that are insecure
So we hide behind our broken hearts
Keep distance from those who need us
Because we won't admit that we need them too
Afraid to give ourselves to someone else
Because we're scared of what we might lose
Everyone wants to be understood
So why don't we just listen more and get off our pedestals

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power
I believe it now!
Love is the antidote
Yeah I believe it now!
Our one and only hope
To turn the world around

You become the cancer
When you start to think you've got it all figured out
So why would we believe that our opinions
Would be enough to show the world what love's about?
Stop and think before you speak!

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power
I believe it now!
Love is the antidote
Yeah I believe it now!
Our one and only hope
To turn the world around

The words you speak
Can set a broken world free
The power lies in who we choose to be

Stop trying to solve the problems
That you don't understand
Maybe if we learned to show compassion
The world wouldn't think we had guns in our hands!

Called to love
Called to lead
Have we forgotten who we're called to be?
Build them up!
Don't break them down
The way we love can turn the world around
Turn the world around!

I've seen the darkness be defeated
I've seen the power
I believe it now!
Love is the antidote
Yeah I believe it now!
Our one and only hope
To turn the world around
Stop and think before you speak!
