Longclaw - Best Intentions

from by No! to Rape Culture

/

lyrics

I saw the light
I made it shine
And I wonder if you feel with a heart like mine.

Through the darkest clouds
our ignorance resounds
and miss the beauty in the world that truly astounds

I can see there's an ocean of pain,
a collective shame I did nothing to erase.
We can hear a deafening cry,
a culture that stood by and did practically nothing.

I saw the light.

x2

I still feel with a heart, no matter how much pain affects it.
I still feel with a heart, a heart with the best intentions.

I can see there's an ocean of pain,
a collective shame I did nothing to erase.
We can hear a deafening cry,
a culture that stood by and did practically nothing.
I can see there's a promise to make,
a decision to take a stand and not just sit by.
We can lend a hand to the weak,
Pull them up to their feet - no one else should be victimized.

I saw the light,
I made it shine,
and I wonder if you feel anything at all.
