Just An Echo

lyrics

Strap in, do we have your attention!?
Repudiate your preconceptions!
We speak from the edge of the sky, we were born in a palace, built from the lives of those that were stepped on to raise us on high
We were given a stage and a mic!
Let's use it right

I have the utmost privilege
Of speaking to you today
Ladies and gentlemen,
and honoured guests preferring neither way

We just echo
The voice of those
That aren't being heard
Let's raise them up

Insisting freedom from fault
And laying blame on the past
It's our burden to mend
If this world is to last

Once more, do we have your attention?
*gibberish noises*
One thing we forgot to mention...
This is just one step of a long long road

We were given a stage and a mic
We call you all to join the fight

My most enraptured listeners
There's simply too much to say
A world of complex nuance
Underlies all subjects of the day

We just echo
The voice of those
That aren't being heard
Let's raise them up

Insisting freedom from fault
Arrives us nowhere fast
We must rally the cause
To avert mistakes of the past
