  1. The Same Blood

Lyrics

They're rattling their sabers
Stirring up our fear
Of the ones beyond our borders
Far away from here.

They tell us we're in danger
That the enemy must fall
But after all their shouting
We still hear a different call

The same blood on the day we're born
and our mothers hears our cry.
The same blood on the battlefields
where our children go to die.
The same blood when we lift our prayers
to heaven up above.
The same no matter who we hate
or who we choose to love

We are red and blue states
We are straight and gay
Black and white and brown
Those born here and born away.

The wedges cut so deeply
They almost split the root
But now and then we stop to see
There's a deeper truth

The same blood on the day we're born
and our mothers hears our cry.
The same blood on the battlefields
where our children go to die.
The same blood when we lift our prayers
to heaven up above.
The same no matter who we hate
or who we choose to love

La la la....

We can cling to differences
that keep us all apart
Or choose to love the life that flows
Through every beating heart

La la la....

The same blood on the day we're born
and our mothers hears our cry.
The same blood on the battlefields
where our children go to die.
The same blood when we lift our prayers
to heaven up above.
The same no matter who we hate
or who we choose to love

La la la....
