We're Not The Innocents

lyrics

When it comes to causing harm in world, we're not innocent, but we're not guilty either, because the opposite of innocent isn't guilt, it's responsible. We are responsible, meaning we have the power to change the course of what's happening.

LYRICS

I've been looking for you.
Was is you who turned a blind eye?
At least are you in charge here,
cause everyone else has denied it?

Cause if you're to blame
then I've heard you can change it all
and take it all back.
Please don't say it's someone else.

But you say you've been looking for me.
You think I am the one with the answer.
You say "It is the ones on the ground
who can put this all right.

It's not me, it's you?
It's not you, it's me?
Is there anyone else out there
who can hold their hand up now?

Search all your memories and thoughts -
we're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in power
I search my atrocities
admit to my part.
We're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in power

I've been looking for you,
been looking in all the wrong places -
looking for who is reponsible,
who holds the key?
It is me. It's you.
It is you and me.
Is there anyone else out there
who can reach their hands out now
and stand in power?

Search all your memories and thoughts -
we're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in power
I search my atrocities
admit to my part.
We're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in power

We are in power:
we are empowered
We are in power:
we are empowered

Is there anybody else out there
who can reach their hands out now
and stand in power?

we're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in empowered
I search my atrocities
admit to my part.
We're not the innocents
we are in power
we are in power
we are in empowered

we are in empowered
we are in empowered
