None Left to Defend
Lyrics
None Left To Defend
© 2015 Sahlen-Starburst

l see evil cloaked in goodness
I see good under the bad
We're a race awash in mystery
Never finding dreams we've had
We're a species often drowning
In the air we cannot breathe
As we suffocate in silence
Hoping someday we'll believe

(chorus)
I feel a stabbing presence
Of a God that used to live
A creator of the essence
Of a yearning to forgive
But the eons rushing by us
When the killing never ends
As the creatures turn their backs now
There is no one to defend

I hear groaning sobs of sorrow
Piercing through the peaceful night
Battling blindly for tomorrow's
Vestiges of morning light
Praying for a lost fulfillment
Screaming for someone to care
With the nations trading places
Trying to rid their own despair

(chorus)
I feel a stabbing presence
Of a God that used to live
A creator of the essence
Of a yearning to forgive
But the eons rushing by us
When the killing never ends
As the creatures turn their backs now
There is no one to defend

(bridge)
And we wonder how it happens
How such evil can attract
A band with youthful promise
Where religion's been hijacked

(chorus)
I feel a stabbing presence
Of a God that used to live
A creator of the essence
Of a yearning to forgive
But the eons rushing by us
When the killing never ends
As the creatures turn their backs now
There is no one to defend
