Innocence Maintained

Ophelia drowned in the water
Crushed by her own weight
Hitler loved little blue-eyed boys
And it drove him to hate
Birds always grow silent
Before the night descends
‘Cause nature has a funny way
Of breaking what does not bend
A hero’s torso built
Of steel and Novocane
His heart a bitter beat
Inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his soul
A manicure could not fill
So he found himself a whore to love
While dasies choked in the window sill

We’ve made houses for hatred
It’s time we made a place where
People’s souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other these fragile flames
For innocence can’t be lost
It just needs to be maintained
Hey Hey Hey Hey Ooooo… Hey Hey Hey Hey

A small town in Ohio
Two boys were filled with violence
And darkness spreads it’s legs
Of hate and ignorence
We are given to a god
To put our faith therein
But to be forgiven
We must first believe in sin


I want to live bravely
And love without fear
I want always to feel
The wings of grace near
We all will be Christed
When we hear ourselves say
We are that to which we pray
