lyrics

It’s overwhelming now.
Our faces are lost in the crowd.
I wonder how they live today
without all the things we should say but we don’t say.

You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.
You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.

I don’t know how to tell you
it’s broken, filthy and abused.
We are waiting for heroes.
There are heroes. There are heroes in you.

We’re fed fear and hopelessness
by those who claim their innocence.
The greedy few keep us content
and feast as we neither consent or dissent.

You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.
You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.

I don’t know how to tell you
it’s broken, filthy and abused.
We are waiting for heroes.
There are heroes. There are heroes in you.

Why don’t we stop before it's too late to belong?
I won’t betray our future.
Stop before it's too late to belong.
I won’t betray our future.
Stop before it's too late to belong.
I can't stand up when you're falling down.

It’s overwhelming now,
how they keep our influence down.
A system of puppets and lies
where money steals power from the disenfranchised.

You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.
You’re my hope. You’re the only reason I am here.

I don’t know how to tell you
it’s broken, filthy and abused.
We are waiting for heroes.
There are heroes. There are heroes.
There are heroes. There are heroes.

Claims of innocence and then another dollar spent
by billionaires who profit from another dollar lent.
We are told to vote and that our voices will be heard
but how can we compete with them when all we have are words?
How can we compete with them when all we have are words?

Apathy will break us into parts they can consign;
factions who will fight each other - this is by design.
Leaders they use hate to make all choices sound absurd
but how can we compete with them when all we have are words?
How can we compete with them when all we have are words?
