So we wrote On precedents and angels We build a book We build a road out of nothing but a saying Out of governments and police we build a book Of how the things we know should be
So when a man comes with a difference A woman comes with an idea We crush it down to nothing in the fear that we will lose it Open up the books I'm guilty of it, too Just like all of us The information flies without us through
And say the way This may have leave my head run over And pass through a night so black, I can't see you, oh
Hope from the speeches spoken in Hope from the speeches made day in, day out With money paid And adverising raging A woman and a child sleep well as the day ends Raising me up Raising me like a man, oh man (? )
Oh mother everything good I've gained I've gained from you Oh and mother everything I've know I learned from you, oh
But, the reign in the house so no one sees me Oh, should we brothers and sisters upheave it?
I read a book of a man most worshipped A man who most worshipped For ideas and for the birth of freedom he showed Well, in, oh in twenty years He begged the revolutions come So that no pig-headed bastard would steal you and i From...my fun (? )
Rain in the eyes Rain in the mourning eye Oh rain/reign in the love of my mother, my brothers And I hear the voices of women calling loudly and (here, Holding, holding, holding) And nothing should address this like our love for each other...
This land is your land This land is my land From california to new york island From the redwood forest To the gulf stream waters This land belongs to you and me
Rain/reign in the eyes that we should lead it And the brotherly love and go away And rain/reign in the eyes that we should lead it
