I Have Scaled These City Walls…

Lifted some stones, saw the skin and bones
Of a city without a soul
I went out walking

The trenches dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart.

“You love this town
Even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over

A city lit by fireflies.”

I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls that hold me inside

“Listen to me now
I need to let you know
You don’t have to go it alone.”

Take this soul
and make it sing

It’s not a hill, it’s a mountain as you start out the climb
Listen for me, I’ll be shouting:

I’ve found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all I found
And I can breathe

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one
Well, yes, I’m still running.

Cry 'Havoc!' and let slip those thoughts of yours!
