In a time when all we have is gray, always gray I’m inclined to lean into the change come what may I can’t stay at the edges anymore - I’ve lost your face Draw close, we’ll open every door on faith Trip into the cold and silence my emotion It’s nothing personal An act of betrayal is hard to prove When it’s done in love We came so far and we stayed so long That we lost track of why we had come at all So maybe it’s time and maybe we might Maybe we try for an Irish Goodbye

Oh my eyes they fill with tears As I think back to the years A racist school board segregated schools If we're equal after all Thurgood Marshall made the call To Desegregate in 1947 So we stand here and say This old school we won't giveaway It's the last link before the memories start to fade So preserve this old site Cause it taught us how to fight And the story it tells can't fade away So preserve this old site Cause it taught us how to fight And that we are created equal after all Yeah, we are created equal after all

Another day like the last one Whiskey in my hand Oh God, I pray That I'll find something new So I can live again It's a long way to fall It's a long way to fall Take my hand We'll jump into every kind of fire The burn won't last It's just another way to feel alive It's a long way to fall It's a long way to fall In time you will see it's our time We're all fallen In time you will see it's our time We're all fallen In time you will see it's our time We're all fallen In time you will see it's our time We're all fallen It's a long way to fall It's a long way to fall It's a long way to fall It's a long way to fall

We are merely moving shadows Caught up in esoteric haze So busy running towards nothing Nothing ventured, nothing gained As we stand here in our silence Thinking nothing said is what to say As it all falls down around us As it all goes up in flames Every lifetime is a moment Each of us is just a breath All we have is each other Each other now in death Can you hear me? Are you listening? Can you hear me? Are you listening? Can you hear me? Are you listening? Can you hear me? Are you listening? Every lifetime is a moment Each of us is just a breath All we have is each other Each other now in death
5.
I don’t have much to say but even if I did You could take or leave it I’m like an open book that’s been left behind And I could hardly blame someone who chose to read it So let’s all get a ticket to this voyeuristic symphony And in the middle we’ll share secrets About being disappointed that it ended happily Because that’s not artistic Hallelujah, hallelujah glory be Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, unless you see it differently Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Let’s go to a party where no one was invited And claim the guest list is all full You can laugh at all our stories and claim they’re inside jokes Like they did in days of old And I will hardly even notice that those outside are crying We look the same with no sound So light a match, pull the string, take a shower It's all the same in this town Hallelujah, hallelujah glory be Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, unless you see it differently Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, hallelujah glory be Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, unless you see it differently Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, hallelujah glory be Thank you Jesus that they are not like me Hallelujah, unless you see it differently Thank you Jesus
