children of fathers

lyrics

we are the children of fathers
who fought in senseless wars a world away
as senseless as the stitches that
left scars on my mother's face
hit with a fist that belongs to my father
if love isn't violence then what is it?
if love isn't violence then what is it?

we are the children of mothers
who buried their feelings in bottles or pills or both
she told me to defend us
she said i was the only one who could
but she had a choice and i was a child
if love isn't sacrifice then what is it?
if love isn't sacrifice then what is it?

we are the children of fathers
we grew up we left home
we entered the world alone
fearless in the face
of what isn't a father's rage
but how do we know
who to love how to love to be loved?

if love isn't violence then what is love?
if love isn't silence then what is love?
