Of Truth And Reconciliation
by Staple


Little boy with a heart of gold
Your scars forever nigh have told
Malicious deeds that none should know
Theyll never take your heart of gold

May angels guide your feet, little boy,
Towards the peace you truly seek
High proof to ease the pain
Wont heal your wounds this way

Little girl with a heart of gold
Your smile, for long, has not been shown
Dont listen to the jokes theyve told
Theyll never hold the weight of gold

May angels guide your feet, little girl,
Towards the peace you truly seek
Lined skin and reddened blades
Wont heal your wounds this way

May angels guide you there
Godspeed in getting there

May angels guide your feet, little one,
Towards the peace you truly seek:
Unfairly given scars
Dont make you who you are

Im sorry for the pain I gave
Im ashamed I made you feel this way
Id take your scars and wounds away
If I could rewrite yesterday

Lyrics by Darin Keim, Music by Staple

Behind the Song:
"This song means a lot to me personally because I was on both ends of it. Through words and actions, there were many times I caused others pain or experienced it myself because of things I did or they did to me. Its classic high school life. Kids hearts are crushed, as everyone wants to exploit others who are lower on the social totem pole. The victims are left so depressed that they resort to harmful coping mechanisms.

Lined skin and reddened blades wont heal your wounds this way.

There was one kid in particular that everyone, myself included, demeaned. He always seemed to take it, though hed do nothing in return. I often thought to myself (and still do) that this kid is a bigger man than I. Shame and respect were often mingled in my thoughts when I saw him." - Darin Keim (Staple)
