lyrics

When piety demands blood
We rush to find an offering
It can't be one of us
So we offer up the least of these
The poor, the powerless, the refugee

When the prisoner finds no friend
Just excuses from our twisted mouths
Another way to be owned
Like the slave his father was
Separated, never equal, never free
This is who we are
This is what we've become
This is who we choose to be

So cold, so alone
Up on our holy hill
From where we cast condemnations
And wait for the blood to spill
From those we gave unto death
In the name of Christ the King
Who poured out all of himself for you and me
And this is who we choose to be

When there's no room at the inn
For the immigrant and refugee
No respite from the wars we perpetrate
No haven from the terror she flees
Abandoned in her need and on her knees

When our Mother bends and breaks
From the pillaging, the weight
The exploitation, the rape, the draining and the drilling
The rocks themselves cry out, shaking
And all creation screams
The Father grieves
This is who we are
This is what what we've become
This is who we choose to be

So cold, so alone
Up on our holy hill
From where we cast condemnations
And wait for the blood to spill
From those we gave unto death
In the name of Christ the King
Who poured out all of himself for you and me
And this is who we choose to be

When we awaken from the night, into the morning
Turn away from fear and are ready to be born
Lay prostrate our whole selves to the Lord
Who defeated death
And the sword
We can choose
To be
Who we
Really are
