Hey, you look different, different from me I'll find a category and label you with ease Keep my nose up in the air, my head down in the sand Ah, my willful ignorance, the foolishness of man It's us vs. them, the good guys against the bad the bad ones are out of country or somehwere across town outta sigh, outta heart we'd rather judge than understand we're doctors plagued by blindness the foolishness of man Where went all the wisdom? When did our stomachs turn? Love feels like a lesson......we were never willing to learn When fear became our fortress, pride became our friend All the sages tried to warn us as we raised up walls within Truth she keeps on calling to set the captives free A whisper in the darkness, a light so scarcely seen I stand here on the shoreline I will take the portage path 'Cause only love will end this hatred: the foolishness of man

I know what flame burns in the distance I know what fire calls in the night Out in the clear, covered up in mystery I know the soul seeks till its finds Meet me where the sparks fly upward Meet me where the sparks fly I know what word hangs in the heavens I know what line the angels recite Song of the story, song of the moment I know in the end it'll be alright Meet me where the sparks fly upward Rising to the stars Meet me where the sparks fly We're not that far Some settle for the wait Some swear there will never come a day But you and I put feet towards the flame You and I walk unashamed

Call Can you hear them now? Howling whispers at your ear Call When they run you down Could you believe it? The truth clear as day You are more than your old mistakes You are more than your old mistakes Lost and afraid But you are more than youre old mistakes more than your old mistakes Call Can you hear them now? Whispering your name Call When you wonder how Do you believe it? The truth is clear, but the voices rage you wear your regrets like chains, but you are more than your old mistakes Lost yourself to a secret shame underneath your blame you are more than your old mistakes All the love that you won't let in It's only you that you must forgive You are more than your old mistakes Lost and ashamed You are more than your old mistakes

I will take tomorrow if it comes my way live with sorrow suffer in shame But I won't live in fear I refuse I won't live in fear I refuse So many pieces, so much I can't explain What's around the corner? What's staring me in the face? I won't live in fear I refuse I won't live in fear I refuse The sky is falling the ground it shakes chaos is calling, but control has never been the case

In my dreams I sleep on the hearth bare my soul with the sparks but its so cold when I wake I need to be home I need to be home Left it all at the edge of the world Saw a path, a trail from the shore Haunted by a single ghost I need to be home I need to be home So much stumbling around trying to find a door So much hurt to never see except inside my dreams I don't know where I'm going, but I know I've been there before
