Oh Mother, oh Father
In our time of fear
Grant us the wisdom
Your message for to hear

Send down Your angel band
To fill Your hearts with power
Oh Mother, oh Father
In our darkest hour

Ignorance is the enemy
And it fills your head with lies
Its the kind of bliss that can make you miss
The very truth before your eyes

Its not whos right or wrong
Weak or strong, black or white you see
Ignorance is the enemy
And its keeping you from me

Forgive me all my pettiness
Forgive me all my greed
Forgive me for I know not how
To live this life I lead

Ignorance is the enemy
Let's set the record straight
If history must repeat itself
Why worry while you wait

Its a perfect blue and beautiful world
You treat with such disdain
Ignorance is the enemy
And It can only bring you pain

Forgive me all my vanity
Forgive me my conceit
Forgive me when Im crawling
Like a beggar at Your feet

Ignorance is the enemy
And it wields a mighty sword
It can cut you down in a blaze of glory
It can nail you to a board

If mercy and compassion only had a chance
It could fill these holes weve dug
But ignorance is the enemy
And its working like a drug

Oh Mother, oh Father
In our time of fear
Grant us the wisdom
Your message for to hear

Send down Your angel band
To fill our hearts with power
Oh Mother, oh Father
In our darkest hour
