about

From the forthcoming album, "The Cope Aesthetic"

lyrics

It’s time for fire
I think we’re all a little
Different in a vicious kind of way
It’s not required
But as the kingdom dreams
I’m listening to ancients from
A far away place

You are the greatest light
This world has ever seen
We mean it
Don’t think it takes away
From anyone else
For you to beam it
Human definitions aren’t fitted
To the world of grace
You are spectacular
You are immaculate
And it’s okay to claim

I trembled in the palace
Of my turn to speak
They’re calling us pariahs
We were just unique
I screamed inside
As all their eyes landed on me
But I refuse to soothe
The burn of this awakening

You are the greatest light
This world has ever seen
We mean it
Don’t think it takes away
From anyone else
For you to beam it
Human definitions aren’t fitted
To the world of grace
You are spectacular
You are immaculate
And it’s okay to claim

We are unafraid of
Making mistakes
We will do our best to
Re-new re-late
We re-turn to sender
Inauthentic soul
We don’t listen when they
Doubt how far we’ll go
We stand in spirit
We use our mind
We know the truth when
We hear it every time
We do remember
Our given name
We know it’s time to
Claim

You are the greatest light
This world has ever seen
We mean it
It doesn’t take away from anyone
Else for us to beam it
Human definitions aren’t fitted
To the world of grace
We are spectacular
We are immaculate
And it’s okay to claim

Self-effacing diatribes will get you nowhere
Question all your feelings don’t expect to get there
Apathy’s a symptom of not raising the bar
Indifference is a systematic plan to disarm
Targeted distractions have us walking through sleep
Freedom comes from knowing that we never were weak
Give away our powers when we choose to attack
Oppression feeds on those who fight the knife in their back
