lyrics

I work so hard, thinking big, talking loud
Just for it to break me down
I wake up every day with the word on my breath
There’s always someone pushing it out

I know it’s you

The kids who swam drowned a thousand miles
He dressed in razor wires and shame
You’re standing in a wall against their rights
Since you cast a ballot in his name

They’re trying to bury me and my country
We took away children
We throw away children
Some lucky country

Watches
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When hate turns men into killers

We all watch
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When you point your finger at me

Cause I'm not your enemy

A faded man that I met on the street
Says he’s searching for his people
Born in a cage, made of skin and talk
He's left a broken man, a stolen man

We tried to bury him and his country
We took away children
Without a sound we bury them
Some lucky country

Watches
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When hate turns men into killers

We all watch
As glass walls turn into mirrors
There’s no hope for freedom
When you point your finger at me

Cause I’m not your enemy

I'd hope
I’ve hoped for a long time
You'd choke on it like me

They’re trying to bury me and my country
Who took away children
Who throw away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You fuck away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You throw away children

You’re trying to bury me and my country
You take away children
You fuck away children

Hell, I’m not you’re enemy

I'm not your enemy *
I'm not your enemy
*You are my enemy
You are my enemy

Some lucky country
