lyrics

As a wave across the land we are movin', movin'
This ain't no phase, the change these bodies make
and the way they are
Facing forward, shoulder to the stone, telling of movin' it
takes one step, it takes your voice, saying,
"I am not hearing if you are not naming it
I am not stopping if you are not changing it
Here are my hands let's see what they're makin..."

In the morning, in the rise up,
there's a bridge from all that's been
In the dawning, the vines are
pushing through the pavement
We were born of burning hearts
We are tearing off the reigns
From the ground up we will build it
From the clouds above we'll rain it
From the crowd up we will raise it
From the ground up...

You hold the spade to turn new soil
For the coming grace, you hold the plans
And no hands but our hands will lead our children
And all that will feed you is a fierce prayer,
is a fierce prayer, saying,
"I am not hearing if you are not saying it
I am not stopping if you are not changing it
Here are my hands let's see what they're makin.."

In this life we see so many things and
sometimes our hearts may start to bleed a bit
But I choose this life I'm gonna lead and
I must give these hands
to make it
