Redemption Day

Sheryl Crow1996年9月22日

歌詞

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
