You will be moved
When the baby lets out his very first cry
You will be moved
When you think of how hard he'll have to try

He'll grow up on an empty stomach
But he'll try his best to listen
To the teacher readin' from a school book
With half the pages missin'

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da, see the video

You will be moved
And you will be when the baby makes all the grades
You will be moved
And you will be when they still don't hire him anyway

Moved by a system
Without one single guarantee
That an education is the answer
And love will set us free

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da, see the video

Oh, you will be moved when the rain comes
Oh yes, you will be moved
When the streets overflow with angry souls
That's when you see the truth

When the pain that you've inflicted
Comes back on your door for roost
(Back on your door for roost)
That's when you'll see the future
(Future)
But you won't see you

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da, see the video

You will be moved
When the whip comes down on the back of one of your own
You will be moved
When you look for compassion but you find you're all alone

Moved and you will be when you are
That's when you'll know
That the bread you share is better
Than the blood that your deeds have caused for flow
(That the bread is better than the blood)

Surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da, see the video

Hey, you will be moved when the rain comes
Oh yes, you will be moved
When the streets all flow with angry souls
That's when you'll see the truth

When the pain that you've inflicted
Comes back on your door for roost
(Back on your door for roost)
That's when you'll see the future
(Future)
But you won't see you

I said surely when the rain comes, you will be moved
La da da da da
(La da da da da)
See the video

Hey, surely, surely, surely
(When the rain comes)
Surely y'all ow, la da da da da
