notes:
 We need to think were special
Decide were better
Need to be unique
Need to be a letter

We have to take a little extra
Wear the most glitter
A call to compassion 
Just makes us bitted

Its at the root of everything we do
Pride is the only sin.
(We need to win the gold medal
Or participation ribbon
Anything that will declare 
We deserve praise for what weve done

We celebrate skin color, hair color,
Clever meme
Tell ourselves division
Keeps us on the winning team


Its at the root of everything we do
Pride is the only sin.

We pretend to love others
To the best of our ability
But wed rather brandish signs
Than live lives of humility

We think partitioning
Fosters unity
We love our tribes
Only pretend we like community


Its at the root of everything we do
Pride is the only sin.

I hate waiting in line
I hate giving in to others
If youre not like me
I dont consider us brothers

I wear my guilt
Like an emblem on my chest
Im not a fraction better
For having confessed


At the root of all I do
Pride is the only sin.
