    Lyrics

    Open your shelters and let us all in
    Tired and homeless and hungry again
    Outside my window at fountain & vine
    Drunks and addicts are forming a line

    Sharing their stories to comfort despair
    Carry the weight of the crosses they bare
    Praying for courage and wisdom to change
    Serenity cost more than pocket book change

    I want to tear down the walls
    And shatter the image that falls
    I want to turn all the tables
    And give back what doesn't belong to me

    Sleeping on sidewalks is how people live
    Begging for something no one wants to give
    Size of your wealth is a bottle of wine
    Sipped with your friends you'll soon leave behind

    Are your children in flames?
    Incarcerated and bound by the chain?
    Strangers paralyze
    Down in the gutters of fountain & vine

    Feel like running away
    Tired of seeing them falling aside
    There's no running away

    I want to tear it all down
    Build it all up from the ground
    I want to tear down the wall
    And shatter, the image, that falls on me

    The view from down here
    Brings mention to mind
    Everything's sacred on fountain & vine
