lyrics

A dream has died
A vision passed away
Fight wars outside
Some have yet to be waged
Travail exhale
Think of all there's left to give
There's a reason to die what's your reason to live

Like you need water
Where's the want to be free
Run to water
Pull the veil start to see
Darling we might falter
Just hold on to me
There's still wars left to be won
Still justice left undone
Different chains we're running from
Toward water

Ancestral vows
To lay Down your life for peace
Seem pointless now
When blind to our defeat
Run truth sojourn
Till there's nowhere left to run
When you finally tire
It'll be time to come

Back to water
Where's the torch keep the light
Like you need water
Chains look different in this life
Darling we might falter
Just hold on to me
There still wars left to be won
Still justice left undone
Different chains we’re running from
Toward water

Wade in the water
Wade in the water children
Wade in the water
God's gonna trouble the water

Run to water
Where's the torch keep the light
Run to water
Chains look different in this life
Run to water
Where's the want to be free
Run to water
Don’t forget how to breathe

Darling we might falter
Will you hold on to me?
There's still wars left to be won
If injustice left undone
What happens is up to us….
