Pavement speaks too and it sings songs of tragedy
Broken ground like the stripped sound of the songs we sing
Under every crooked wave, asleep, deep in broken dreams
Longing one day to wake up
But the sun never rises on an earth with the shade pulled down
And death moves to silence the sound
Of hearts beating like fists on the walls that enclose us
Breaking out of the cells that hold us
And so, stung by the light from the cracked door of tomorrow's life
We are awake, we are alive
To the empty eyes at the surface of this solid ground
We are voicing our statements now
Screaming at the sun, I will not be broken
No curse can kill me, no blade can spill my blood
No cage can hold me, and no fear can make me run
And when they tell us we're dying,
We'll just hold on tightly and remember
What we're living for
They tried to steal your voice, so you kept screaming from your window:
No curse can kill me, no curse can kill me.
They tried to steal your voice.
Stung by the light from the cracked door of tomorrow's life.
We are awake, we are alive.
