From the album Hallowed Ground
With These Hands
Words and music by:
We’ve seen them all running
We’ve watched as they fall
We’ve taken no action at all.
We heard their decision and when we knew it was wrong.
We stood there and let it go on and on.
How do we brace for the storm?
How can we replace what is gone?
How will we explain what we’ve done?
With these hands
While the baby was crying
We ignored her again, no nurturing comfort to lend.
And as the green world around us, started slipping away
We searched for another to blame
There is a solution, and when we look in the glass,
we’ll see our reflections look back.
