Dear world in flames,
I write to you to share this song as an offering after the events of the American presidential election. I have been hoarding it for some time. It never sounded quite right, but it's been given new life. I humbly present it to you with love.

lyrics

"I'd die and be born everyday
Nothing would hurt more than to be pried away
Home is a place where you stay
and decay...

Bound by the return of everyday
Make it a promise that can't be turned away
I will part knowing I gave it everything
I will part knowing I gave it everything

Sources of malice stick to the walls
We fight a watch while it all falls
We've bitten our tongues for too long
We've bitten our tongues for too long
Expect disturbance of the peace
When we're all not at ease
Poets of the past tell the future
Ghosts of martyrs join in movements
Kings will roll in the grave
and kings will roll in the grave
Where they'll stay
Make way....

Have-nots fly with fury
Carry, carry the beauty
Rip up the remains and make new bounty
Turn the soil, turn a leaf
Thieves as taking what's ours to keep
As thieves we're taking what's our to keep."
