We’re creatures of conviction
So sure of right and wrong
We stand where we shall always
And point where you belong

Nor entertain our questions
No matter how alarmingly

But pull one card out from this house
And dogma becomes homeless

How exhausting it can be
To die on every hill
To hyperventilate our side
With faces blue and purple

But what if, for a moment,

We closed our mouths and cleared our ears
To hear one more perspective?
