lyrics

I have a manic heart, you found me out. Keeper of the storms and spirits I chauffeur around, but of late it's working overtime, it’s unsound and wound tight, and every day I dream of release. But, oh, my city 'tis of thee sweet land of libertines. I don't even know who knows me anymore, I've been holed up inside for so long. So I call out to see, “Olly olly oxen free! Olly olly oxen free!” But no one's left to reveal. There is no “us” and “them,” there is only “us” and the tools for empathy, but oh my city 'tis of thee sweet land of libertines. As this world begins to thaw, dead soldiers' bones reenter the show exposed to us. So now it's funerals for memories long forgotten that to cling to us. Oh, they cling to us... There’s nothing that can truly hold me down, there's nothing to neutralize me now. So I sing the fleeting rhymes, beat by beat repeating lines, and every day I dream of release. We divide then make amends over and over until again we see there is no “us” and “them,” there is only “us” and the tools for empathy, but oh my city 'tis of thee sweet land of libertines.
