about

Recorded July 2, 2019 by Jeremy Delaney at Kaleidoscope Sound, Union City, NJ

All musicians and engineers generously donated their time and energy to this recording so that all funds raised from it be donated to RAICES (Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees.

lyrics

I don’t want to see the gates of rome
until they’re ready to be opened up for you

I don’t care how shiny we can get the marble
there are some things dirtier than dirt

there is a monument so white
all the bones stacked side by side

it is smooth to the touch
until you see the lines they form

I don’t want to see the gates of rome
until they’re ready to open up for you

I don’t care how shiny we can get the marble
there are some things dirtier than dirt

every monument we build
leaves a hole to be filled

we can cover it until
it is smooth to the touch

I don’t want to see the gates of rome
until they’re ready to be opened for you too

I don’t care how shiny we can get the marble
there are some things dirtier than dirt
