What a merciless place

This world can seem

Where bullets swarm like flies

And more death than you could dream


So you protect yourself

What more could you do

Hide away inside

So that nothing gets through


But what will that get you

How far will you go

Buried deep in these layers

Resides your soul


So afraid to hurt

Too afraid to cry

You’ll choose to fear

Till the day you die


What does it matter

What words could I say

To show you the choice

That you make everyday


It’s not about conflict

Or who’s right or wrong

The message I bring

Is in every song


Listen oh so carefully

And maybe you’ll see

That fear is a choice

And love sets you free
