​The Hurricane

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Cut the Wire (1986).

Na nana na, we bear the scars of shame
Na na na, beware the hurricane.

Men have been scattered
In clouds and in darkness
Come together gathered
Now none can walk away
To strengthen which was sickness
Bind that which was broken
And the words we cannot say
Come to us in prophesy

Na nana na, we bear the scars of shame
Na na na, beware the hurricane.

From the sacred lips of martyrs
From their hilltops and their valleys
In fire and water
Say love must be proclaimed
In backstreet and alley
Forsaken sons and daughters
Wear their sins in silence
Bearing the marks of Cain.

Na nana na, we bear the scars of shame
Na na na, beware the hurricane.

With all our love, all our heart
Another victim's crying
No echo from the wilderness
Just one more baby dying.

Proclamations come to nothin'
The land's eclipsed in darkness
But to each there'll come one vision
Of he who bears no name
Though there be famine
And though there will be slaughter
There will come a rising
The day of the hurricane

Na nana na, we bear the scars of shame
Na na na, beware the hurricane.

Beware the hurricane
Beware the hurricane
Beware the hurricane
