​Jails and Bombs

This song is by Amos Lee and appears…

Two, three, four...

The one I love is lost without the least bit of explanation;
Just goes to show the futility of self-preservation.
Now all I seem to see is all this war, and goin' amongst our nations.
What good will it do?

Now everybody wants to know the secrets to our salvation;
Forever reading on and on, from Genesis to Revelation.
Never stopping for a second to examine situations,
After all that we've been through.

And love it only ends,
When there's nothing left to defend.
Will we ever see, yeah, yes,
The common bond of humanity?
Go on...

Get a landscape of famine and also of frustration.
And children walking round without the proper means to education.
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation,
For jails and bombs.

Still we live behind these hollow walls of lies and segregation.
People walking round without the proper means of medication.
And still up there on Capitol Hill they're passing all this legislation,
For jails and bombs.

Anybody out there, can hear my prayer?
Anybody out there, can hear my prayer?
Anybody out there, can hear my prayer?
Anybody out there, can hear my prayer?
Anybody out there, can hear my prayer?
