I have my mother's dreams
I have my father's eyes
You can't take that from me
Just go ahead and try

The crescent city sleeps
While giants in the sky
Preparing to unleash
Let loose a mighty cry

Can nobody save us?
Will anyone try?
The bayou is burning
The cypress has died

And all along they're saying

Help is on the way (They said they said)
Help is on the way (They said they said)
One by land, two by sea, right there in front of me
Help is on the way

Five thousand feet below
As black smoke engulfs the sky
The ocean floor explodes
Eleven mothers cry

My bones all resonate
A burning lullaby
You can't take that from me
Just go ahead and try

She says that's a shoreline
With hands in the air
Her words pierce the dark night
Does anyone care?
And all along can say it

Help is on the way (They said they said)
Help is on the way (They said they said)
Hold my hand, to help see, right there in front of me
Help is on the way

Right here
Right here

Right here
Right here

Right here
Right here

Choking on the black gold
Upon which we here rely
We keep axes in the attic
To see cameras in the sky

Help is on the way (They said they said)
Help is on the way (They said they said)

We were told, just to sit tight
'Cause somebody will soon arrive

Help is on the way
They never came
They never came

Help is on the way (They said they said)
Help is on the way (They said they said)
One by land, two by sea, right there in front of me
Help is on the way

On the way
