New World Widows

Diablo Swing Orchestra

Spoke of honor, spoke of truth
Spoke of everything it made us do
In the name of a broken, but promised land
Down a path so worn out, stained red by man

And I never knew
How hatred could consume
In a prayer that no one heard
Cam the words to late to her

Carved in skin and heart since birth
Took on duties to cleanse this earth
From unbelievers, from those outside
Our eyes we close, our hearts we fortify

In a world that sleeps
Built to make us weak
Silence calling, how numb we all are
Tried to set it free
Tried to leave it be
Tried to spare your eyes and now just dream me away

Safe from harm now, safe we all are
Heaven to her, such beauty in your arms
I raise my hands as if time would stop
We all bow down, forgive us all

So afraid of what could occur
Forgot to heal what's sore
Spend a life taking back what's said
Just words you'll live to regret
