Jonas And Ezekial Lyrics

by Indigo Girls

{Alright
Dancin'}

I left my anger in a river runnin' highway five
New Hampshire, Vermont, bordered by
College farms, hubcaps and fallin' rocks
Voices in the woods and the mountaintops

I used to search for reservations and native lands
Before I realized everywhere I stand
There have been tribal feet runnin' wild as fire
Past life sister of my desire

Jonas and Ezekial hear me now, said
"Steady now and don't come out
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose turn is it anyway?
Anyway"

Now when I was young my people taught me well
Give back what you take or you'll go to hell
It's not the Devil's land, you know it's not that kind
Every devil I meet becomes a friend of mine
Every devil I meet is an angel in disguise

Jonas and Ezekial hear me now
"Steady now and don't come out
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose angel are you anyway?"

Ha ha huh huh
Ha ha huh huh
Haa haa woo
Haa woo

White, chain, rope, fear
(Hush my baby)
Be still my dear
(Be still my dear)

A bullet in the head, now he's dead
A friend of a friend, someone said
He was an activist with a very short life
I think there's a lesson here he died without a fight

In the war over land where the world began
Prophecies say it's where the world will end
There's a tremor growin' in our own backyard
Fear in our heads and fear in our hearts
Prophets in the graveyard
(Prophets in the graveyard)

Jonas and Ezekial hear me now
"Steady now and don't come out
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
Whose turn is it anyway?"

I said, "Jonas and Ezekial hear me now
(Jonas, Ezekial)
Steady now I feel your ghost about
(Steady now)
I'm not ready for the dead to show its face
(I'm not ready for the dead to show its face)
Whose angel are you anyway?"

I said, "There's prophets in the graveyard
(Now I walk in beauty)
Prophets in the graveyard
(Beauty is before me)
Prophets in the graveyard
(Beauty is behind me)
(Above and below me)"

{Thanks

We're gonna do one more song for ya
