glimmer lyrics – firebrands

shadow of power is corruption
shadow of love is rebellion

showers of fire rain down from above
burn the fields where the children play
down in the dark is a lead-singed dove
diamonds just can’t save the day

the shadow of power is corruption
the shadow of jealousy is greed
the shadow of love is rebellion
the shadow of hunger is need

showers of fire rain down from above
burn the fields where the children play
down in the dark is a lead-singed dove
diamonds just won’t save the day

the shadow of power is corruption
the shadow of jealousy is greed
the shadow of love is rebellion
the shadow of hunger is need

baby used to hold a rattle now he holds a grenade
in a senseless battle daddy holds a spade
down a black hole as black as the day
hacking out the sparkling drops
hacking out the sparkling drops
of precious cursed suns to feed those cursed guns
for the price of everyone
for the hope of everyone

the shadow of power is corruption
the shadow of jealousy is greed
the shadow of love is rebellion
the shadow of hunger is need
