Nothing Is Sacred

about

This is about taking care of yourself, and taking care of others. A song for this period of new and terrifying things. A song for protecting yourself, protecting others, and doing what good you can. A song for being brave, keeping yourself honest, standing for what's right, and fighting for others. I believe in you.

lyrics

Look around at what is needed
Put aside your anger and give space
Our spirits feel defeated
So we burn our thyme and sage

Bring us healing, bring us peace
Understand the words you hear
We ask for pain to be released
For the smoke to finally clear

Ask your neighbors, ask your friends
Don't act like this is how it ends
Put up your fists in their defense
Because this can't be how it ends

Bring us healing, bring us peace
Understand the words we hear
We ask for pain to be released
For the smoke to finally clear

Nothing is sacred and nothing is safe
Among the people who live in this place
But everything is sacred that's sacred to you
Hold on to what you need to get through
I promise that I believe in you
I promise that I will honor you too
