Can swell to a flood
And fear is the same
It sometimes draws blood
It’s a fluid that flows
Through everyone’s veins
It shows us we’re one
Despite all our names
Nothing’s worth fighting over
Not religion or race
Can’t you see that division and hatred
Will only lead to more pain?
It runs through our hearts
It’s what we’re made of
If we’d only realize
That we are all blood
We’re not all that different
We’re from the same source
When we harm each other
It only ends in remorse
We all have our scars
And anger cuts deep
When one of us suffers
Every single one of us bleeds
We are not alone
We all need each other
We are not alone
We’re sisters and brothers
If love the answer
When love is the answer
They’ll be no more blood

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
