about

Written by Grace Petrie

lyrics

From common grief to Bristol up in flames
We came here begging justice, instead we got the blame
For peace disturbed, out on the streets tonight
And watching on the BBC you know something’s not right
When mourners come with candles and with flowers
Wrestled three on one, and pinned down by the state’s full powers
This is their world. And these have been the rules
We’ve come to break it down with bloody fingernails for tools

The threat of violence
This tightrope wire
We can no longer bear it, we are all too fucking tired
No more minutes’ silence
We will sing hire
You tell us to light a candle we have come to start a fire

And if I spend my life the losing side
You can lay me down knowing that I tried
There’s a better world and on a quiet day
When I hold my breath
I can hear her say
She is on her way

Safe at home, you watch it on TV
And never think that one day you could be the enemy
That you might be one day under attack
From all that should protect you, hoping someone has your back
The history books are screaming from the shelves
No government who outlaws speaking to defend ourselves
Has good things planned. A storm ahead I see
And none of us will bear it without solidarity

They give us trouble
All our days
This ailing failing world sent signs
Of fire and flood and plague
But from the rubble
From the razed
The mightiest cathedral
From these ashes we will raise

So take heart my sisters
This fire will never die
Take heart my comrades
No one left behind
