Redemption Day




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
