(CHORUS) We put up the borders that board us into our boxes Can’t you see now how the locksmith lies? Stoking up the national pride While they’re keeping all the wealth inside (repeat) We put up the borders To keep out the needy man Borders To protect the greedy man Borders To keep all the living men dead, dead, dead (repeat) ____ (VERSE 1) We put up the borders That separate us from our fellow human beings Emphasizing difference instead of seeing The reflections that connect us Connections that perfect us The similarities of factors that affect us in our Everyday existence in this planet that we all live upon Six billion expressions of the same essential one The same essential force That fundamental source Of energy that manifests itself in oh so many different forms. And it’s All alright and all ok and that’s just fine you know but Me I know that sometimes you have to draw the lines just to make Sense of what you see Of this reality But understand the lines you draw only exist within your mind, it’s the Illusion of separation, whoa oh oh Separating nation from nation, the Justification for social segregation So deep in our delusions like a world of mental patients, now it’s Time to tear down the asylum walls and let the patients out, it’s Time to let the refugees inside and share the wealth about, it’s Time that we all understand We are just one land Just one people, people it’s time to make a stand and say ____ (BRIDGE) No woh woh woh I won’t go woh woh woh I won’t go quietly no no no I won’t go quietly no no no I said No woh woh woh I won’t go woh woh woh I won’t go quietly no no no I won’t go quietly no no no And if I do, you should know You can’t trap my soul Trap my soul Behind these... ___ CHORUS ___ (VERSE 2) Borders That elevate the status of those with resources Never wonder from what plundering the source is Misappropriated Excavated from the living earth Minerals like outlaw criminals flee from their place of birth and Make the journey northwards Destined for our waters where they’re Welcomed in with open arms by the governments and corporates Container ships slip over border points with ease When they’re carrying the commodities that service our greed, but meanwhile Deep down in the belly of the ship, a secret human cargo waits No food or water’s passed a man’s lips for the last eleven days Kept alive by memories of families they’ve left behind They ride the waves towards the promise of a better life Some flee from tyranny Some simply seek a way To lift themselves up from the poverty that stalks them every day Some run away from never ending civil war For every single one of them This is the last resort and they say... ___ BRIDGE CHORUS x 2
