  • Lyrics: Why try to resurrect an eye for eye when we crave love as our deepest cry? If forgiveness is our deepest need, why press the wounds to bleed? Children forced to kill their closest friends So they can learn to defend a revolution That is born from delusions of a few Dust mingled with blood Marks the path where the past has become the future again Will it ever end? Why try to resurrect an eye for eye when we crave love as our deepest cry? If forgiveness is our deepest need why press the wounds to bleed? Are we brave enough to give? Are we dead enough to live beyond ourselves and to breath... for something higher than this? These resurgencies of war are getting old But no one is bold enough to drop the stones from their own hands 'Cause how will they defend? So we strike blow for blow, because we've been told that the strong will survive But strong is defined by those who teach the weak to thrive Why try to resurrect an eye for eye when we crave love as our deepest cry? If forgiveness is our deepest need why press the wounds to bleed? Are we brave enough to give? Are we dead enough to live beyond ourselves and to breath... for something higher than this? Why try to resurrect an eye for eye? With who we are who will not be blind and when the day is done, who will lead us to the dawn? So are we brave enough to give? Are we dead enough to live beyond ourselves and to breath... for something higher than this?

Norah Jones, meet Sufjan Stevens. St Francis of Assisi, meet Sigur Ros."
