Surroundings – Paper Cranes Lyrics

SHARE

Heartbeats join us all in unison,
Lines in the sand divide us all
Influencing a cultural divide
That only fuels the fires
We can never hold unity
While people still take sides

Creased together from broken parts and patched pieces.
But we continue to grow apart,
and let our world
Separate beyond reason

Where did we go so wrong?
When did it all fall apart?

Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
Into the ways we think
And opinions we hold
Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
But how are we to grow
Without testing what we’re told

We chose our fate
The day we opened our mouths
And began to speak with silvered tongues
Standing on our own two feet,
Choosing for ourselves, what is right to believe.
What is wrong to adhere.

The endless cultural divides
Created from fear,
Made only to destroy.
Our sense of fellowship,
Only strengthened through negativity

Where did we go so wrong?
When did it all fall apart?

Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
Into the ways we think
And opinions we hold.
Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
But how are we to grow
Without testing what we’re told.

Nothing but fear
Creates the borders
Dividing us as
No more than human resources
Builds boundaries
and tears us apart
Take us back to the start
Take us back to the start

Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
Into the ways we think
And opinions we hold
Folded so carefully
Like paper cranes
But how are we to grow
Without testing what we’re told

And realising that no one is right
The venom on our lips
Only fuels the fires
We can never hold unity
While people still take sides
While people still take sides.
