lyrics

Hope, I see it rising over the tenement slums
Fire of praise, rising like the cinnamon sun
We shook, Anticipate the morning light filter in
Warmth of joy, Radiate off of her mortal skin

Hope, I feel it walking on the streets of destiny
Fire of praise, searing deadwood, rot, and misery
We stood in awe below, while seven hawks they circled overhead
Warmth of joy, The night the city's demons fled

Hope, It will outlast this mortal machine
Fire of Praise, Join the voices of the seen and unseen
I shook, Let the spirits return like crows to the trees
We stood in awe below, Those branches grow from the smallest of seeds

Hope, See it shining in our ancestors' eyes
Fire of Praise, The echoes of their shouts and cries
We shook, Hear the truth from all sides and within
Warmth of joy, On these streets now let the carnival begin.

Chorus:

Keep looking left keep looking right
Watch your back and keep your foes in sight
Keep your head up and your hands free
Through a city filled with fear walk the streets, the streets of destiny
