My words are all stripped bare

Tonight I want something else

Something different

to make some kind of clarity

of everything that's over us

that's hanging in the air

Coming in on the darkness

sounds of small voices

im many different tongues

Codes coming in

Music mingling

from lands I've never seen

places that I've been

where strangers have given more to me

than I could ever dream of

Oh make it clear tonight

fragile word

Whatever's hanging over us

I'm reaching out beyond it now

turning shadows into light

Fragile life

He's fighting beyond all this

Turn his shadows into light

Words are all stripped bare

Fragile bodies

small voices carry through the air

all this life inside of us

in a darkened world tonight
