AFTER CURFEW

We found you in the street with a list of all our names
There were stars beside the strongest and the weakest
They cut you quite a deal almost too good to refuse
But some of us don’t just worship what’s convenient
Fall to your knees if you need
The truth is hard to handle
You are not fragile
You are not fragile
You are not fragile

Your father rest his soul, the finest man I ever knew
Spoke a truth that was clean as an island
They gave him every chance to repeat the party line
But he shattered their windows with his silence
So they took him out back in the rain
And they made him an example
You are not fragile
You are not fragile
You are not fragile

Now they’re rounding up the boys in the nation off to war
And they left behind the two-faced and the useless
On the first of every month the neighbors gathered on our lawn
And we dance for they’re mercy like we’re minstrels
They dug up the headstones last night
And broke them into gravel
You are not fragile
You are not fragile
You are not fragile
