“Give & Take” Lyrics:

For what it’s worth I prayed for you and sought the counsel of the wise men from the east.
But you set your sights on burning bridges.
If time is so precious, Why is it something that we’re always trying to kill?
I’m at opposing ends of the beast, where empathy meets will.

Take your life, back from those who would place you on a scale and measure.
Wasted youth, Bare the noose. You’re as guilty as those you condemn.
Man your post, Fix your eyes. You’ve been kept in the company of cynics.
We are not, a dead culture, Bound to earth by inanity.

Revolt. Revolt.
I’ve been trying to shake this off, but I can’t.
It keeps coming back, we keep coming back to Look for progress in this walk, but there is none.
It keeps coming back, we keep coming back to
Revolt. Revolt.
I’ve been trying to shake this off, but I can’t.
It keeps coming back, we keep coming back to Look for progress in this walk, but there is none.
It keeps coming back, we keep coming back to

This is not a call to arms, it’s a call to lay them down
No comfort, no martyr, no saint, you pushed my face into the dirt
But you came and you pushed my face down into the dirt.
And I have watched you grow. You were meant for so much more.
Than these hurtful things you’ve brought as weapons.

I am the final hope of my people. My daughter’s eyes, They guide me home.
We made a promise in youth to be steadfast.
This conflict pierces me to my bones.
My walk must now change.
