lyrics

She carves
out the names
on the wall
to stay sane
and the dust
that it makes
is now paint
for her face
And indeed
politely
he believes
all her dreams
until what
she can use
is not what 
she has got

So you are a national Identity
It's border making
Please don’t be so closed off
A peaceful day
Is for the taking

She cries
out her eyes
and decides
to deny
that its one
one and all
from its rise
’til its fall
With a crutch
in her bag
and a tax
on the rag
its la luz
its the rain
its what flows 
through your veins

So you are a national identity
Its border making
Please don’t be so closed off
A peaceful day
Is for the taking
