lyrics

Ivory tower State of Mind
Only when you look is when you'll find
Stay strong; keep on the grind
Nothing comes easy
Ask those who died
Last night in a fight
For what I already have

I see it all through my white window
Love is quick but change comes slow
Shaking my head at things I've seem
Tears from tear gas on my TV screen

Some says its ignorance
I call it profound
Shouldn't have to stand under that flag
To stand your ground

23 hours yields another name
Another black pawn tipped
In a white king's game
Nothing to lose
Everything to gain
History's mark is today's blood stain

I see it all through my white window
Love is quick but change comes slow
Shaking my head at things I've seem
Tears from tear gas on my TV screen

Some says its ignorance
I call it profound
Shouldn't have to stand on that flag
To stand our ground

An endless row of names carved into obsidian skin through violence
A paper thin list with red ink washed away whose only monument is silence

An endless row of fields always sewn the same will never yield a different harvest
It's time to call out hate for what it is
No symbols, fears, or martyrs

It's not my place but I have to say
I can't look the other way
How can you look the other way?
