LYRICS

The Line
 

The innocents have had it with the failures
The innocents have shown composure and given time
The guilty, the immoral, free to target -- plague without restraint
The arrogance is left unchecked; entitlement runs wild


Intimidate within a place we've trusted to be safe
To keep our sisters out of harm's way
But everything is broken
Just how many lives have felt the strain of ethics, honor, self-control -- corroded and decayed?


We've found our voice
We know our strength
This truth will liberate


We know our light
We know our power
And you should be afraid


You're moving, you're moving
So very, very close to the line
You're crossing the boundary
We see you, and there's nowhere left to hide


No pain can be undone
And not all suffering can be overcome
How many more stories have we not yet heard?


Phallus in hand, attempted force
Label the victim as a whore
Every account swiftly ignored


Fuck the protectors
Fuck the silent
There is no savior for you


Our angels will have justice
This world belongs to the pure and true


You fucking coward
You fucking liar
You'll get yours, motherfucker
We shine brighter and brighter still


You're moving, you're moving
So very, very close to the line
You're crossing the boundary
We see you, and there's nowhere left to hide


You're moving, you're moving
So very, very close to the line
You're crossing the boundary
We see you, and there's nowhere left to hide


We shine brighter
