Love And Rage

Love, Love and rage

Soon be the day

They sang as they swayed in the pews

Sang with love, love and rage

Soon be the day as they joined up to pray

 

Think of the power of song

And the history it brings along

And I can almost see sights

Of some hot southern nights

Through blood rain tears will shine

Every night and by day

 

With Love, Love and rage

Soon be the day

They sang as they swayed in the pews

Sang with love, love and rage

Soon be the day as they joined up to pray

 

I’m hearing some old singer sing

A song that out tale-tellers bring

It has been sung

Through cracked jaws, swollen tongues

In the land of the freed

Where they sang freedom rings

 

With Love, Love and rage

Soon be the day

They sang as they swayed in the pews

Sang with love, love and rage

Soon be the day as they joined up to pray

 

So now that I see where I am

I see race still determines

The bless from the damned

And the greatest of all historical shams

Is believing you cannot do something you can

 

So it’s Love, Love and rage

Soon be the day

They sang as they swayed in the pews

Sang with love, love and rage

Soon be the day as they joined up to pray

 

And it’s Love, Love and rage

Soon be the day

They sang as they swayed in the pews

Sang with love, love and rage

Soon be the day as they joined up to pray
