In the middle of the schoolyard

Where the bombs have lain to rest

There's a child in the darkness waiting

But the answers in the history books

Are slowly burning down

And the words that spell forgiveness

Wear a thorny crown

In this world they say is free

That would make it almost seem untrue

Many times I've walked the line

Longing for the other side

The only thing that changed my mind was you

Gabriel's sword will pierce me no more

I'll let my spirit soar so high

Sure as it all comes

From the father to the son

We've got to learn to speak the truth to fly

And it's a beautiful sky
