Common Thread

Hear them like a thousand drums beat against the walls of your heart
Nothing but the echo left to fall upon deaf ears

Hear another life so young let go of the hope to grow old
Today is one too late to change his mind

 

So why now, when we could be much better
Do we close our eyes to the world around us
Tell me why now, when we could be much better
Do we keep our hearts closed
And why now, when we could be much better
Do we let the difference try to separate us
Tell me why now, when we could be much better
Do we keep our hearts closed
And our heads down

Hear it as a nation falls victim to the hands of its own
All along the silence serves to fuel the hate within

We’re all keepers of this earth you and I
A common thread that runs between our very lives
Together now we are wielding like a sword
With the power to ignite in love
Or a power to ignore

So why now, when we could be much better
Do we close our eyes to the ones who need us
Tell me why now, when we could be much better
Do we keep our hearts closed
And why now, when we could be much better
Do we let the difference try to separate us
Tell me why now, when we could be much better
Do we keep our hearts closed
And our heads down
