lyrics

is there any other kind of power
besides old names on old buildings
old friends in new uniforms
big fish in small oceans

when you fall, no one will catch you
get used to starting over
don't sink your roots too deep

and when they come to cut us down
run until they lose your scent
some of us will stay behind
setting traps
feeding on parasites

yeah when they come to cut us down
I want you to run and don't look back
as long as some of us survive
we have not lost, we all live on
