Innocence Maintained Lyrics

Artist: Jewel
Album: Spirit

Ophelia drowned in the water
Crushed by her own weight
Hitler loved little blue eyed boys
And it drove him to hate
Birds always grow silent before the night descends
'Cause nature has a funny way of breaking what does not bend
A hero's torso built of steel and Novocain
His heart a bitter beat inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his soul a manicure could not fill
So he found himself a whore to love while daisies choked in the window
sill
We've made houses for hatred
It's time to make a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It just needs to be maintained
A small town in Ohio
Two boys are filled with violence
And darkness spreads it's legs for hate and ignorence
We are given to God to put our faith therein
But to be forgiven, we must first believe in sin
We've made houses for hatred
It's time to make a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It just needs to be maintained
I want to live bravely and love without fear
I want always to feel the wings of grace near
We all will be Christed when we hear ourselves say
We are that to which we pray
We've made houses for hatred
It's time to make a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
We've made houses for hatred
It's time to make a place
Where people's souls may be seen and made safe
Be careful with each other
These fragile flames
For innocence can't be lost
It just needs to be maintained
