Justice, I hear your cries -

Justice, I hear your cries - loud, but unrecognized - passionate, angry at the plight of your loved ones, aching to make things right. They hear you, the crowds, but don't loosen your bounds, for fear of the cost.

But if we ever are to heal,

But if we ever are to heal, we must

But if we ever are to heal, we must learn to love like justice does.

And if your flesh has to tear for our shredded existence to be repaired,

And if your flesh has to tear for our shredded existence to be repaired, you are willing to bear

And if your flesh has to tear for our shredded existence to be repaired, you are willing to bear that cost.
