We can't be oblivious,
We are not ignorant,
Blood in our hearts,
Blood on our hands,
We're human, we reason, we're breathing,
Protecting the living and dying, surviving,
We're trying to breathe in safety,
Come home safely

Mercy screams it's violent love,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
The depth of us created for,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
This is where they kiss

Life here sacrificed,
Someone who paid the price,
Blood in our hearts,
Blood on our hands,
We cry out, we're fighting, it's warfare, we're dying,
Believing we're winning, it's ending, we're singing,
It's already done, we've overcome

Mercy screams it's violent love,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
The depth of us created for,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
This is where they kiss

With a life on the line (Fire!),
That consumes or refines (Fire!),
To ascent or decline, to retreat or to climb,
Out of sight, out of mind 'til attacked from behind.
Will this fire resume or refine?

Mercy screams it's violent love,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
The depth of us created for,
Justice and mercy, justice and mercy,
And this is where they kiss
