My Violent Heart Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You and I, we may look the same
But we are very far apart
There's bullet holes where my compassion used to be
And there is violence in my heart

Into fire you can send us
From the fire we return
You can label us a consequence
Of how much you'll have to learn

You can try but you'll never understand
This is something you will never understand
Can you hear it now? Hear it coming now?
Can you hear it now?

On hands and knees we crawl
You cannot stop us all
Our bones, our skin
We will not let you in

You have set something in motion
Much greater than you've ever known
Standing there in all your grand naivet
About to reap what you have sown

Time will feed upon your weaknesses
And soon you'll lose the will to care
When you return to the place that you call home
We will be there, we will be there

On hands and knees we crawl
You cannot stop us all
Our blood will stay
We will not go away

On hands and knees we crawl
You cannot stop us all
Our blood, our grace
Will never leave this place
