proof

take a photo, there's your proof
solve a number, there's your proof
take a shot, down the bar, there's your proof

fire a bullet, it gets through
glass will cut, underfoot
evidence, you conclude, there's your proof

seasons change, bodies move
in the fields where we stood
seed the dirt, eat the food, there's your proof

kings will fall, queens will rule
from the forge comes a tool
chart the sky, watch the stars, there's your proof

oh you and i can't be proved
oh you and i can't be proved

break the law, break the rules
that predict me to you
what is god? what is truth? there's no proof

still we fight, still we bruise
steel and stone will be new to us
love survives, hearts defy, there's your proof

oh you and i can't be proved
oh you and i can't be proved

walk the floor, stomp your boot
hear the wood ring like music and
shut the door, raise the roof, there's your proof
