Birthright (feat. Jon Foreman)

Sleeping At Last


She was raised by wolves
In the warmth of their fur
Surrounded by fangs
She knew that she was secure

Language barriers
Made no difference at all
When you're truly cared for
There's no purpose for walls

His fences stood tall
As the shoulders of old
But he dreamt that one day
Maybe he'd break the mold

But time shyly stands still
When you watch it unfold
From these ivory towers
Freedom is only a ghost

Privilege and pain
When compared look the same.
Comprehension begins
When we pull back the lens

Right or wrong
Tension makes us stronger
By making us weak
When we needed to be

They made her their queen
On the day she was born
They placed on her a crown
She wasn't ready for

But all impossible odds
Foreshadow our means
Like paving a road
To kingdoms we've never seen

He woke up one day
Written out of the will
They swore he'd be okay
With lesser shoes to fill

"What doesn't kill us
Makes us stronger," they say
Our only birthright in this life
Is the breath that we take

Privilege and pain
When compared look the same
Comprehension begins
When we pull back the lens

Right or wrong
Tension makes us stronger
By making us weak
When we needed to be

Our fables tell our truths
