"Innocence Maintained" lyrics

Innocence Maintained

Ophelia drowned in the water
Crushed by her own weight
And Hitler loved little blue eyed boys
And it drove him to hate
Birds always grow silent
Before the night descends
Cause nature has a funny way
Of breaking what does not bend

A hero's torso built
Of steel and Novocain
His heart a bitter beat
Inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his soul
A manicure could not fill
So he fund himself a whore to love
While daisies choked in the window sill

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we made a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It just needs to be maintained

A small town in Ohio
Two boys are filled with violence
And darkness spreads its legs
For hate and ignorance
We are given to a God
To put our faith therein
But to be forgiven
We must first believe in sin

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we made a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It needs to be maintained

I want to live bravely
In love without fear
I want always to feel
The wings of grace near
We all will be Christed
When we hear ourselves say
We are that which we pray

We've made houses for hatred
It's time we made a place
Where people's souls maybe seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
We've built houses for hatred
It's time we made a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It just needs to be maintained
