Millions die in a battle

Waged by the dense

Started by the shallow

And we only have one defense.

 

So we crawl in the darkness of our own minds

Waiting for them to leave this war-zone

But now I think it might be time

To take back what's ours, take back our home

 

We have to choose our weapons carfully

Find which tool works best

And I choose art as my weapon

Who will choose it next?

 

Will you choose the sword and shield?

The rock and brick?

The rifle and gun?

I choose art as a weapon

Because there is no other one.

 

The war was waged with violence

But I mean to end it with peace

And if it is the death of me

Then at least my soul will be at ease.

 

So forget about what they say and what they do

Pick up your pencil and paper

Fight with art and you can prove

That you are so much better

 

Fight their hate and block their words

They're no match for our power

March to their own homes, no matter the hurt

And take back what's rightfully ours
