Rise Again

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Lifelines (1991).

Born into darkness
Raised in pain
She who dreams of an Eden
Raises up a Cain
Who cries for Cambodia?
Now they're playin' the numbers game
Hey Lazarus you hear me
Rise again

Rise again - Rise again
Oh, rise again my chosen
Rise again

Who calls forth the thunder
And the winds of change
Cloaks the moon in angry clouds
Who commands the reins?
He who rides the whirlwind
Reaps the hurricane
Every crying sun eclipses
And will rise again

Rise again - Rise again
Show mercy on your chosen
Mercy on Phnom Penh

Rise again - Rise again
Oh, rise again my chosen
Rise again

And though the world still keeps on turning
It'll never be the same
Rise again my children
Rise again

Rise again - Rise again
Oh, rise again my chosen
Rise again

Rise again - Rise again
Oh, rise again my children
Redeem this world of sin
Oh, rise again
