We are (the voices that you hear)
We had grown tired (but now our words are clear)

For those who have seen
The passing of many days grow blind
To their actions and numb to this tragic place.
Can you taste the salt of the tears running down their face?

Can you hear me, (I'm screaming at you)
Through the smallest of cracks in the walls?(A penetrating voice)
The sound is seeping. (As small as it may be)
Will you answer the call? (Arise)

Your lack of action penetrates the skin and rips open my heart.
Take a step back,
Get to thinking,
What you've done will do no harm.
The scar that's left here,
Bearing witness,
Testifies to your depart.
You left your mark here,
Left us dying,
Signed away your promised part.

You give up that which costs you nothing,
But a decision of the heart.
You leave the broken and the weary,
To wander aimless in the dark.
Those who are lost with no desire,
All alone cannot be found.
Can't see the candle in your lighthouse,
And their souls will run aground.

Your lack of action penetrates the skin and rips open my heart.
Take a step back,
Get to thinking,
What you've done will do no harm.
The scar that's left here,
Bearing witness,
Testifies to your depart.
You left your mark here,
Left us dying,
Signed away your promised part.

(Dona nobis requiem)
You've got the stuff but can you feel it?
The world getting in your way.
(Dona nobis pacem)
Your heart's on fire with contagious passion.
But when the chemicals decay,
(Dona nobis requiem)
Those left luke-warm will be ejected,
And their spots will be filled.
(Dona nobis pacem)
The pathway narrows and the crowded masses,
Will find their way to falling short.

Your lack of action penetrates the skin and rips open my heart.
Take a step back,
Get to thinking,
What you've done will do no harm.
The scar that's left here,
Bearing witness,
Testifies to your depart.
You left your mark here,
Left us dying,
Signed away your promised part.
(Signed away your promised part)
(Your promised part)
(Signed away your promised part)
