Politics or love can make you blind or make you see; Make you a slave or make you free but only one does it all.  And that’s giving up your life for the ones you hate the most. It’s giving them your gown when they’ve taken your clothes.  It’s learning to admit when you’ve had a hand in setting them up, in knocking them down.

Because love is not against the law. Love is not against the law. Because love, love, love.

Are we defending life when we just pick and choose lives acceptable to lose and which ones to defend?  Because you cannot choose your friends but you choose your enemies.  And what if they were one, one and the same?  Could you find a way to love them both the same?  To give them your name?

Because love is not against the law.  Love is not against the law.
