Redemption day



I've wept for those who suffer long 
But how I weep for those who've gone 
Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong 
But keep on killing 

It's in the soul to feel such things 
But weak to watch without speaking 
Oh what mercy sadness brings 
If God be willing 

There is a train that's heading straight 
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate 
And on the way, child and man, 
And woman wait, watch and wait 
For redemption day 

Fire rages in the streets 
And swallows everything it meets 
It's just an image often seen 
On television 
Come leaders, come you men of great 
Let us hear you pontificate 
Your many virtues laid to waste 
And we aren't listening 

What do you have for us today 
Throw us a bone but save the plate 
On why we waited til so late 

Was there no oil to excavate 
No riches in trade for the fate 
Of every person who died in hate 
Throw us a bone, you men of great 

There is a train that's heading straight 
To heaven's gate, to heaven's gate 
And on the way, child and man, 
And woman wait, watch and wait 
For redemption day 

It's buried in the countryside 
It's exploding in the shells at night 
It's everywhere a baby cries 

Freedom
