They say that they don't know me Never saw my face And if they've never been there Can they be sure there's such a place They think if they don't answer The world will pass them by But there's a fire in their kitchen And the water's three feet high and risin'
My beloved The only one I see standing up for me
Someone's shouting at me You're all going to hell Must not be too far away Sometimes I can never tell My shoes are still as empty A mile they never walked Send in their donation And they never have to talk again
My beloved The only one I see standing up for me My beloved Close my eyes heal my pride
I just want to show them who I am I just want to show them what I can do There's not much use to curse the damned And there's power in nothing to lose
Someone's spitin' blood Face down in the dirt Someone's thinking about a gun To try and stop the hurt Someone drew conclusions On the wall of destiny Someone's getting louder And that someone would be me
You think if you don't answer The world will pass you by But there's a fire in your kitchen And the water's three feet high and risin'
