Prayer of the Refugee

I have always loved rock music for its ability to convey meaning in the most direct manner.

“Prayer of the Refugee” is a song about empathy.

Author: Rise Against

We are the angry and the desperate
The hungry, and the cold
We’re the ones who kept quiet
And always did what we were told
But we’ve been sweating while you slept so calm
In the safety of your home
We’ve been pulling out the nails that hold up
Everything you’ve known
