Gone Away

 

 

The night is long, the dreams are dark

Although you try you can’t drive them from your head

The sunlight’s warm, the rain is cool

It’s worth remembering you’re a very long time dead

Well, spirit’s old and visions new

The blood will pour just like tears upon the ground

And I’ve been told, so I’ll tell you

The night will end, the morning always comes around

 

Yeah, did you think that we had gone away, never to return?

We were growing stronger day by day

With all the lessons we had learned, yeah

 

We recognise you, identify you, all you who use oppression as a tool

To further your ends, well, be assured

That we won’t rest until we’ve seen the back of you

And evil people who feather their nests

Using money that should go to the poor

The karmic wheel is now in spin

And it beats a path directly to your door

 

Yeah, did you think that we had gone away, never to return?

We were growing stronger day by day

With all the lessons we had learned

 

And what forces us apart

Is the way they use control

But if they can’t break your heart

They can’t take your soul

 

We’re just like water in your cupped hand

‘Cause you see through it doesn’t mean that it’s not there

And I’ve heard whispers across the land

And if you listen you can hear them in the air

They talk of no more and never again

They sing of freedom of choice and using power

And as the tears soak in the ground

The soil will break and from the seed will grow a flower

 

Yeah, did you think that we had gone away, never to return?

We were growing stronger day by day

With all the lessons we had learned
