the promised land



How do we come back to sweet love
when our heads are in the sand
something in the way
of the promised land
we're just a bunch of fools
agreeing to all their rules
peace being the last thing on their minds
selling us time is money, just run along
with us you'll do just fine
sellout your sisters family
we don't need her, if she don't agree

All around there's fear and pain
peace the last thing in the frame
just another day of going insane
sorrow's tears lost in the game

How do we fix our broken hearts
do we go back to the start
do we fight for dignity
do we join in unity
but we've been here before
standing behind closed doors
of prophets from another world
who talk wise words
that love will never die
from the beginning of time
a love for all human kind
a love that seals and binds

All around there's fear and pain
peace the last thing in the frame
just another day of going insane
sorrow's tears lost in the game

The sunshine from the golden dawn
dies a million deaths, then it's gone
lightening strikes fear into our hearts
reminding us of the time we're apart
you loving our babies,taking care
me sweating in hell looking for another fare
seeing people and there problems
telling me their hurts and symptoms
their dreams and visions of peace
their newly born nephew or niece
children crying change your ways
to their drunken parents in a daze

All around there's fear and pain
peace the last thing in the frame
just another day of going insane
sorrow's tears lost in the game

We were crying when we were born
we were lying when we were torn
so now it's come to pass
nothings changed as we forgive our past
and with the fear that dwells inside
we just turn away and hide
blaming fairy tales and situations
one legged pigeons and career politicians
for our strange written out, televised legacy
in all it's glory and hypocrisy
it happened to you,it happened to me
no bread at their table
this is the truth of the fable

All around there's fear and pain
peace the last thing in the frame
just another day of going insane
sorrow's tears lost in the game
