New Song: ‘Hate Will Tear Us Apart’

New song.

Written Saturday, recorded Sunday.

About the dangerous path we are on when we exploit the fault line between one half of the population and the other to score political points.

Hate Will Tear Us Apart

If something’s come from all of this
I pray the lesson’s learned
So that future generations
See the bridges that we burned
Just led to anger, fear and hatred
And a desperate need to blame
And I hope that looking back on this
We hang our heads in shame

See love will build you bridges
Hate will build you walls
Love will help you off your knees
Hate will let you fall
Love will heal division
Put the hope back in your heart
But hate
Hate will tear us apart
Again
Hate
Hate will tear us apart

I hope the schoolkid told to ‘Go Home!’
Sees we’re not all bad out here
That those of faith don’t go to pray
Their heads bowed down in fear
Or them who use their words as weapons
When they take the stand
Can one day find forgiveness
For the blood that’s on their hands

Love will build you bridges
Hate will build you walls
Love will help you off your knees
Hate will let you fall
Love will heal division
Put the hope back in your heart
But hate
Hate will tear us apart
Again
Hate
Hate will tear us apart
