It's another night in hell, another child won't live to tell
Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death?
And as we sit free and well, another soldier has to yell
"Tell my wife and children I love them," in his last breath

C'mon now amen
(Amen)
Amen
(Amen)

Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas
I'll tell you sometimes people I don't know what's worse
Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors
Now goddamn it I'm scared to send my children to church

And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations
Got me feeling guilty of being white
But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior
I'm no saint but I believe in what is right

C'mon now amen
(Amen)
I said amen
(Amen)

Stop pointing fingers and take some blame
Pull your future away from the flame
Open up your mind and start to live

Stop short changing your neighbors
Living off hand outs and favors
And maybe give a little bit more than you got to give, got to give

Simplify, testify, identify, rectify
And if I get high stop being so uptight
It's only human nature and I am not a stranger
So baby won't you stay with me tonight?

And when I cross away, I'm breaking down
I steal the sound to be someone, oh to be someone
You just settle down, ain't holding back
You've called the grace of God and then He saves a child
Wanna save a child?

It's a matter of salvation from them patience up above
So don't give up so damn easy on the one you love
(One you love)

Somewhere you got a brother, sister, friend
Grandmother, niece or nephew just dying to be with you
You know there's someone out there
Who unconditionally, religiously, loves you
So just hold on 'cause you know it's true

And if you can take the pain, you can withstand anything
And one day stand hand in hand with the truth

I said amen
(Amen)
I said amen
(Amen)
I said amen
(Amen)
I said amen
(Amen)

Amen
Amen
Amen
