Innocence maintained

by Jewel


Ophelia drowned in the water
crushed by her own weight
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 found 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 just needs to be maintained

I want to live bravely and 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 to which we pray

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
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
