All These Lives

Lyricist:     Composer:


Doesn't come down when she calls
"It's time for breakfast."
Momma can't get down those halls
Fast enough to see
Glass is sprayed across the floor
From the broken window
She can't breathe anymore
Can't deny what we know

They're gonna find you, just believe
You're not a person; you're a disease

All these lives that you've been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don't you know it's violation
It's so wrong, but you'll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you're breathing
But you ain't comin' in
You ain't comin' in

Posters hung on building walls
Of missing faces
Months go by without the cause
The clues, or traces

They're gonna find you, just believe
You're not a person; you're a disease

All these lives that you've been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don't you know it's violation?
It's so wrong, but you'll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you're breathing
But you ain't comin' in

Shed the light on all the ones who never thought they would become
A father, mother asking why this world can be so cold

Doesn't come down when she calls
"It's time for breakfast."
The memories begin to fall
She asks, "When will I be free?"

All these lives that you've been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
Broken homes from separation
Don't you know it's violation?
It's so wrong, but you'll see
Never gonna let you take my world from me
The world outside these walls may know you're breathing
But you ain't comin' in

All these lives that you've been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
All these lives that you've been taking
Deep inside, my heart is breaking
The world outside these walls may know you're breathing
The world outside these walls may know you're breathing

But you ain't comin' in
