lyrics

There’s a saying that the greatness of a nation
Is defined by the welcome of strangers
But if history is given to warn us
We have not been reading the signs

There are flags being raised over gardens
There’s bitterness written on walls
We’re harking for a time that won’t reason or rhyme
A past we’ll never have back

We’re in the darkness and we’re in between
All that is cautioned and all that is dreamed
We’re now defined by who’s in and who’s out
Who’s had the privilege, and who’s left with nought

It’s a groundless world and the fault lines are changing
But the heart still calls us on
To find somewhere between

We were forced to the wall with a question
Do you stay or do you want us to leave?
Unleash the dogs, without counting the cost
All for our country and queen

We’re more divided than we’ve ever been
Forced in the corner and pushed to extremes
A lifetime of labour undone in one day
For all that is struggled for and fought hard in vein

It’s a groundless world and you’re in the spotlight
But the heart still calls us on
To find somewhere between

It’s a groundless world and you’re in the spotlight
But the heart still calls us on
To find somewhere between
