Leave Them Alone

Look at them shine
And look at ’em all
You look long enough
You see one of them fall

Out there at night
It makes you feel small
Standing there
Under the sky

How many times 
Have I gone to my knees
With a prayer to the starts
The madness would cease

There was one place 
I could always find peace
Now they want 
That Place too

Why don’t we leave them alone
With the war in the heavens
Tell me where do we go
Why don’t we leave them alone
Ah, Enough is enough
When do we learn to say no

Well, I do believe 
I’ve heard this before
They say we’re going to
To just build this one more

When it’s all finished
We’ll be secure
They’ve said that
Again and again

We point at them
They point at us
From the seeds of suspicion
Grow the fruits of distrust

They say have to 
We say we must
And I think I know
How this ends

Why don’t we leave them alone
With the war in the heavens
Tell me where do we go
Why don’t we leave them alone
Ah, Enough is enough
When do we learn to say no

I don’t really want to live in fear
This thing hanging up in the sky
Strangles the spirit
Hardens the heart
Clouds up the stars in the eyes

How can it be
We’ve come this far
One tiny place
Among billions of stars

We haven’t learned yet
We really are
Only one
Living thing

When It’s all finished
What we’ve begun
Our tale is told
Our race is run

We will be measured 
By what we have done
And what we’ve left 
alone

Why don’t we leave them alone
Jus the stars in the sky
Where all wishes get thrown
Why don’t we leave them alone
Ah, Enough is enough
When do we learn to say 
Enough is enough
When do we learn to say 
Enough is enough
When do we learn to say no
