There's A Light

from Limboland by The Stanfields

/

lyrics

There’s a light shining through the scars
Of a million tired souls
Kindled in the heart of us all
From a flame can come a witch’s fire
Or a warm hearth in a blizzard
Calling us in from the darkness
The golden age has come and gone
So-called progress marches on
The best of all things in the worst of all times
The future is here - all nickels and dimes
The same old story sells itself
Class and conduct - labour and wealth
Waiting in their station for a train that’ll never come

So many times - I found myself at odds
With the words of self-styled kings
But I had not the strength to deny them
And other times - I tried to still the waters
Running canyons in my mind
But I only managed to get in my own way

But I dare to hope that the clouds will break
And the good sun will prevail
To burn away the cruel fog of war
And turn the scorched earth green
They can nail me to the pearly gates
And salve my wounds with lye
They can do many things
But they won’t make a fool out of me.

There’s a life carved out in the stars
For a billion burdened souls
Waiting around to die
On the day you stand to meet your maker
Be it a god or Mother Nature
Can you say that lived the right way?
Can you say it?
