lifeblood: songs: lyrics: from haiti


yes we go walking in that rubble
yes we go walking in that heat
and we're holding all the roses as we travel
and we're holding all the thorns as we reach

kids i know kids i can see you falter
you need to find out your own alters
cause it wasn't good enough to hold your hand
and it wasn't good enough to make a stand

what doesn't kill us will us make us stronger
what doesn't break us will make us last a little longer
if it doesn't set us free in the end
well it serves the ones who follow us my friend

so they have the riot rail
so they have the barricade
so they have the history
that they love to make
i want you to write this down
i want you to carry it around
blessed are the ones you know
who walk this heavy road

yes we go walking in that rubble
yes we go walking in that sun
and our feet get tough enough to hold the travel
and our hands get tough enough to hold the thorns

what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
(what doesn't kill us)
what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
(what doesn't kill us)
what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
(what doesn't kill us)
what doesn't break us will make us last a little longer
(what doesn't kill us)
what doesn't kill us will make us stronger
