Whatever it was is wasn't manumission
To spill the blood, to pull the weed
You can bury the past but it's a mausoleum
With the ghost of a fist that won't let us be

Can we bring it together?
Can we call from the mountain to the valley below?
Can we make it better?
Do we tether the hawk and do we tether the dove?

I kicked up the dirt, and I said to my neighbor
We keep making it worse, we keep getting it wrong
He tucked in his shirt, he stood a little bit straighter
We need a few less words dear, we need a few more guns

But will it bring us together?
Can we call from the mountain to the valley below?
Can we make it better?
Do we tether the hawk and do we tether the dove?

Enduring love why so much and so strong
Beyond this short existence?

Don't be still say there's a long line behind you
And it's hardly worth the mentioning
But I will 'cause we may flicker and fade
But we never will be through with this

I see this world battered but not broken
There's a fallow heart and it's waiting on a sowing hand
You can grow what you want, but one day it's gonna rise up
So plant what you need to make a better stand

And we'll bring it together
And we'll call from the mountain to the valley below
And we'll make it better
Let go off the hawk well let go off the dove

I sing to you, all you true believers
With the strength to see this and not be still
I'm telling you now, find the hope that feeds you
Don't let 'em bleed you of your will
