lyrics

I scream from the podium of my brain
Can't rouse the workers asleep in the back
Can't find an audience for flying ash

They'll carry on life without you
Everyone wise just gives in to the scene
Everyone tries to divine who's the lead
One day they'll beg for disaster relief
I'll point them back to the culture they breathe
I'd risk my life to come alive
I'd risk my life to come alive
I'd die and carry on life below you

Don't claim the mountain, you've never been there
Don't wear that medal, defenses were bare
They don't connect, they just float through the air

He's a refugee
He's a refugee
Don't he make you feel at home?
He's a refugee
He's a refugee
Don't he make you feel at home?
He's a refugee
Don't he make you feel at home?
He's a refugee
How's he make you feel?

I give my life
All in stride
I give my life
All in stride
I give my life
All in stride
I give my life
I can't awaken.
