Echoes

We used to play, take new shapes, be whoever we wanted to be

(They brought their money, we made our own)

But those days are over, we're told to be quiet, be one little thing

(They spoke a language we didn't know)

 

But we'll speak up, speak up now

and our echoes won't bounce back doubts

 

I’ll be the cop or the cowboy and we'll play until dark

(Dark will come but so will dawn, the sun will fall but rise once more)

we don’t need light, only time now to prove who we are

(Who we are is not our job, it's not our role, it's what we love)

 

So we'll speak up, speak up now

and our echoes will be heard

 

So I'll wait until 4 a.m.

When our sounds rise return again

to be heard is all we ask

 

edge to the line, trip the timer and wait for your turn

(Turn your fears into your fuel, and let them push instead of pull)

all reds go green eventually if you’re willing to learn

(learn the rules, time our shots, our throats untwist, and we speak up)

 

So we'll speak up, speak up now

and our echoes will be heard

 

So I'll wait until 4 a.m.

When our sounds rise return again

to be heard is all we ask

 

So I'll wait until 4 a.m.

When our sounds rise return again

to be heard is all…

 

speak up, speak up, now

speak up, speak up, now

speak up, speak up, now

speak up, speak up

 

So I'll wait until 4 a.m.

When our sounds rise return again

to be heard is all we have
