about

Written and recorded the last weekend of May 2020.

lyrics

Torch high, see you from miles away
Are you lost in the dark or are you leading the way?
Unchained but given nowhere to go
An empty symbol you wear for pain that you'll never know
Hood traded for a crown
Old Colossus
Robe made into a gown
Old Colossus

It's not enough to change the monster's name
Wardrobe's changed; the beast's the same
It's not enough to change the monster's name

Gave you our huddled masses
And watched you divide us into permanent classes
All smiles, so prim and proper
That's what you get when you meddle with coppers
Hood traded for a crown
Old Colossus
Robe made into a gown
Old Colossus
