Redemption Day Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've wept for those who suffer long
But how I weep for those who've gone
Into rooms of grief and questioned wrong
That keep on killin'

It's in the soul to feel such things
But weak to watch without speaking
Oh what mercy sadness brings
If God be willing

There is a train that's headed straight
To Heaven's gate, to Heaven's gate
And on the way child and man
An' woman wait, watch an' wait
For Redemption Day

Fire rages in the streets
An' swallows everything it meets
It's just an image often seen
On television

Come leaders, come you men of great
Let us hear you pontificate
Your many virtues laid to waste
An' we aren't listening

What do you have for us today?
Throw us a bone but save the plate
Oh why we waited 'til so late
Was there no oil to excavate?
No riches in trade for the fate
Of every person who died in hate
Throw us a bone you men of great

There is a train that's headed straight
To Heaven's gate, to Heaven's gate
And on the way child and man
An' woman wait, watch an' wait
For Redemption Day

It's buried in the countryside
Explodin' in the shells of night
It's everywhere a baby cries
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
...
