Safety vs. Shelter

from by Horses and Bayonets



kids with no voice
you make no noise
let’s give them something to scream about right now

children without a name
children without a choice
let’s give them something to scream about right now

ready, set, settle, she’s settling
I can’t believe you let this monster in
do you not see what lives inside of him?
this has no ending, aside from my ending
so we’re breaking and bending
you are unmoved all the same
in this classroom as these tears run down my face
I’m so afraid

I am too small and too weak to speak

I have no home
no home
you took everything
yeah, you took everything, so go

so vicious this circle
swear it: I’ll end the cycle
circle as vultures
kid meet your culture
blood all over
all over these floors
no-one can see it
no, not anymore

I am too small and too weak to speak


keep calm, keep calm, press on
stay strong, raise your eyes t’ward the sun
oh unwanted ones

safety vs. shelter
safety vs. shelter vs. home
