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
