about

A song of trauma, of recovery, of survival

lyrics

You start a war but I had to end it,
You play the truth it's how you bend it,
Content to entrench your grasp,
You think small when I'm going large

I escaped from cause and effect,
A battle cross worn around my neck,
I'm not the last, I'm not the lost,
I fight fire like Gretchen Ross

I'll be your armistice,
I'll be your heart again,
If you just let me in,
I'll wear you on my sleeve

From the frontines of my mind,
To the trenches of our lives,
We came as travellers and well,
We left as tourniquets

Is this the fire that I lost?
Am I the flint are you the torch?
A truce burned upon my heart
Would never tear us apart

Better to die on your feet,
Better to die on your feet,
Better to die on your feet,
Than live on your knees.

I'll have my heart again.
I'll have my heart again.
I'll have my heart again.
And I'll wear it on my sleeve.
