lyrics

All is quiet above the city
The sun lays itself to sleep in the fog
And though it's not always easy to feel it
Right now you know it
You're more than just your body

Cuz love was sewn into the stories
All of the hopes and the pains of those who came before you
And blood had carved its lively way
Through generations like veins all the way to you

But now it's spilled into the grass and yet they keep on shooting as your spirit seeps into the ground
You may be strong and full of truth but they'll still come for you if you make the mistake of being brown

Smoke, lavender and sage
Wondering which innocent will be next
There's voices calling out the names
Of those who were served and protected to death

Even when love was sewn into the stories
All of the hopes and the pains of those who came before you
And blood had carved its lively way
Through generations like veins all the way to you

They will still spill it on the grass, they'll still keep on shooting as your spirit seeps into the ground
You may be strong and full of truth but they'll still come for you if you make the mistake of being brown
And the hawk saw it all go down

But love was sewn into the stories
All of the hopes and the pains of those who came before you
And blood had carved its lively way
Through generations like veins all the way to you
