Rise Against-Help Is On The Way Lyrics

I have my mother's dreams, I have my father's eyes
You can't take that from me just go ahead and try
The Crescent City sleeps while giants in the sky
Preparing to unleash, let loose a mighty cry

Can nobody save us? Will anyone try?
The pyre was burning, the severance has died
And all alone they're saying

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Hold my hand, to the sea right there in front of me
Help is on the way

Five thousand feet below as black smoke engulfs the sky
The ocean floor explodes, 11 mothers cry
My bones all resonate, a burning lullaby
You can't take that from me just go ahead and try

She stands at the shoreline with hands in the air
Her words miss the dark light, does anyone care?
And all alone they're saying

Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Help is on the way
(They said, they said)
Hold my hand, to the sea right there in front of me
Help is on the way

Right here, right here
Right here, right here
Right here, right here

Choking on the black gold upon which we here rely
We keep actions in the attics to see cameras in the sky
Help is on the way they said, they said
Help is on the way they said, they said

We were told, just to sit tight
'Cause somebody will soon arrive
Help is on the way

Well, they never came
They never came

Help is on the way
(They said they said)
Help is on the way
(They said they said)
Hold my hand, to the sea right there in front of me
Help is on the way

On the way
