Nothing Left To Lose

from The Rise Of An Empire by Emo Empire

lyrics

It doesn’t surprise me that there were years of grieving
It doesn’t surprise me the land was occupied
It doesn’t surprise that people were arrested
for a justice they had always been denied
But what surprised me was how many people bought it

We sit and watched them
But we did not think it through
You’ll never understand
Until they come for you
When you see it happen what action will you choose?
You will find yourself alone when there’s nothing left to lose

It didn’t surprise me that people have opinions
It didn’t surprise me that it made it to The News
It didn’t surprise me that people used free speech
to protest others with beliefs they disapproved
But what surprised me was how many people bought it

We bound and gagged them
But we did not think it through
You’ll never understand
Until they silence you
When you see it happen what action will you choose?
You will find yourself alone when there’s nothing left to lose

When there’s nothing left to lose
When there’s nothing left to lose
You will find yourself alone
