We were born into a world that sprang up out of nowhere
And nowhere is the place that we're fearing to go
But we're young and we are strong. We can deal with it later
Why bother with questions, when you don't want to know

Keep the music playing, keep the candles burning
We're afraid of the quiet and we're scared of the dark
Oh Lord, have mercy... we don't know your name

There are rules we try to keep, like "loving your neighbor"
But if the keeping gets too hard, we make up rules of our own
And we long to make a difference. Stand up and be counted
But who is there to do the counting? There's no one at home

We are reaching, grasping for someone's attention
For as long as we're noticed, we don't feel so alone
Oh Lord have mercy... we don't know your name

Bridge:
So we're drinking, dancing. We try to keep laughing
We try to keep moving, it's working so far
Keep the music playing, keep the candles burning
We're afraid of the quiet and we're scared of the dark

Oh Lord have mercy... we don't know your name
Dear God have mercy... we don't know your name
Oh Lord have mercy...
Dear God have mercy
Oh Lord have mercy... we don't know your name
