Lightning’s flying kites
Thunder’s hiding quiet
Drinking coffee at midnight
Throwing shade on broad daylight
Everything is alright

Newsroom’s spinning the truth
Gold’s gone singing the blues
Youth’s tying the noose
Etiquette so uncouth
Everything is alright
Alright?

Hate’s sympathizing
Love’s tantalizing
Evil’s contriving
Thankful for surviving
Everything is alright
Everything is alright
Everything is alright
Not quite

Born into the fight, raise a fist united
As humanity stands undivided amongst might
Minds focused on one birthright
We rise like a tide high on evolution

You can hear us singing against the wind
Within the lost being found

You will know us by the sirens we ring
Here, in the underground
Where silence is the sound
And everything is alright

No longer
