  • History's been leaning on me lately
    I can feel the future breathing down my neck
    And all the things I thought were true
    When I was young, and you were too
    Turned out to be broken
    And I don't know what comes next

    In a world that has decided
    That it's going to lose its mind
    Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

    They've started raising walls around the world now
    Like hackles raised upon a cornered cat
    On the borders, in our heads
    Between things that can and can't be said
    We've stopped talking to each other
    And there's something wrong with that

    So before you go out searching
    Don't decide what you will find
    Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

    You should know you're not alone
    And trouble comes, and trouble goes
    How this ends, no one knows
    So hold on tight when the wind blows

    The wind blew both of us to sand and sea
    And where the dry land stands is hard to say
    As the current drags us by the shore
    We can no longer say for sure
    Who's drowning, or if they can be saved

    And when you're out there floundering
    Like a lighthouse I will shine
    Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

    Like a beacon reaching out
    To you and yours from me and mine
    Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

    In a world that has decided
    That it's going to lose its mind
    Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind Writer/s: Frank Turner
