Something Different

The sunlight spilt across the Earth
At the break of an empty day
Catching edges of the cliffs
And the crests of a thousand waves
And that sunrise never changes
Though the Earth might alter some
Am I becoming something different,
Or understanding who I always was?

I think I found some hidden message
In the addict’s last withdrawal
In the child and her mother
As they’re torn at a border wall
So I searched inside my pockets
For my credos or my guns
Am I becoming something different,
Or understanding who I always was?

The city is awakening
I feel it trembling here in hell
Watch us get into a lockstep
And unlock every useless cell
I hear it, yes, I hear it
Start your beat and sound the drum
Am I becoming something different,
Or understanding who I always was?
