1. Love is our language, we beckon        wide,

              C                                                     - Am           - G - F

    the ghost of our citizenship we can never          hide.

             C                                       Am    - G - F

    This anchor cast, stuck below ground,

         C                                     Am    - G - F

    a weight of words is only a sound,

 

 Am                              G                F

Leaving the ship was our rise and fall,

             Am                             G        F

we will sound the trumpets, it is our call.

          Am                                 G         F

Send love to the heart of the bigot's wall,

     Am                                   G              F      - Fm

unload light at night, we will rise, won't fall.

 

            C                                                   Am                 - G - F

2. No boundary on our voyage, navigate from the craft,

            C                                                Am   - G - F

    this baggage we bring, might be our last.

           C                                                  Am   - G - F

    A whip to the heart, Millennial waters fast,

            C                                         Am   - G - F

    the human race is a thing of the past.

 

 Am                              G                F

Leaving the ship was our rise and fall,

             Am                            G         F

we will sound the trumpets, it is our call.

          Am                                 G         F

Send love to the heart of the bigot's wall,

     Am                                   G               C

unload light at night, we will rise, won't fall.

 

 Am                              G                F

Leaving the ship was our rise and fall,

             Am                             G        F

we will sound the trumpets, it is our call.

Send love to the heart of the bigot's wall,

     Am                                   G              F      - Fm

unload light at night, we will rise, won't fall.
